The Emergency Department of OHRH is fast paced, but is a great way to learn how a hospital is run and the inner workings between other facilities and companies that are working with the hospital. My job requires no medical knowledge, but I have learned a lot during my time here. Offers great benefits for full time employees (vacation hours, sick time, holiday hours, birthday hours, personal benefit time) with a shift differential from 6pm - 6am. The hardest part of my job is time management, it is easy to become overwhelmed with tasks if time management is not implemented. The most enjoyable part of my job is the staff that is in the Emergency Room. Most everyone in the ER is friendly towards each other and often have social gatherings outside of work, but not affiliated with the hospital. There is no typical day at work, each day is different but expect to be busy for a good portion of your day.
