Not concerned with patients or employees
Medical Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Palmdale, CA – August 9, 2018
Three lab directors bullied out of their jobs with pressure to make the lab perform at a reference lab efficiency level, with almost no lab employees. The hospital was unwilling to pay adequate raises to current lab employees, laid off over 12 employees in the years I was employed, and refused to hire more laboratory scientists simply because they did not want to pay them the going rate in LA county.
There were many employees that were per diem and down graded to 'part time no benefits' to decrease pay, without notification.
There were also many employees that were per diem or part time no benefits working more than 40 hours a week to make up for the shortage of staff.
There was continual instrument, process, and inventory breakdowns due to inability to perform maintenance and necessary duties because of the extreme short staffing.
My personal experience with HR was also not pleasant, as they changed my employment status and pay twice while i was working there with no notification, ending in them having to pay 'backpay' to fix the problem.
