ICU Nurse (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – February 28, 2018
Your day starts and you hit the groung running. Not much down time during the day, often eat lunch time while standing in the nutrition room. A place for a lot of experience. Although we don't handle trauma or neuro, we handle about everything else. The fellow nurses are what make the team. You can always count on each other when needed.
Small enough to know most everybody, big enough to gain multiple experiences
ER Admitting Specialist (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – September 17, 2017
Admitted patients to ER Obtained Insurance information from patients, Admitted other patients to different areas of the hospital Verified insurance coverage and collected copays when applicable Escorted patients and visitors to the rooms Assisted nurses and doctors as needed. The hardest part of my job was losing a patient or someone I knew and having to watch the family grieve. The enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and learning so much more about the medical field
RN - Progressive Care Unit (Cardiac/Pulmonary) (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – August 3, 2017
This was a positive, friendly and motivating place to work. The culture of the facility was one of safety and team work. They were positioning themselves as a Cardiac facility able to perform cardiac interventions but no open hearts at the time of my employment. The physicians were recruited from across the country. The atmosphere was one of professional improvement. I very much enjoyed the self scheduling aspect and all the potential for growth.

RN (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – June 4, 2017
I enjoyed working at Poplar Bluff Regional , I felt like I learned a lot in the specialty area I was working in. I also enjoyed working as a team to get tasks completed as was done in the department I worked in.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – March 7, 2017
Throughout the day I am by myself. I don't have to deal with customers or other people. Majority of the time I am by myself. Since it is a fast passed work environment, your have to learn to move quickly to get a patient into the room. The management could have been a little better but it is what it is. I didn't really enjoy the environment too much. I ended up getting real sick by being near sick people overall. The hardest part was trying to get as many rooms clean before your eight hour shift has ended. I really enjoyed that it was full time and I had benefits, but overall wasn't the job that suited my needs.
Didn't have to leave work to go to lunch. There was a cafeteria
Barista (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – February 28, 2017

NRCMA / Receptionist (Current Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – December 4, 2016
Busy from time you enter until you leave, I have learned so much, billing, insurance,doctors responsibility, appointments. Management is okay. Co-workers are great. Trying to get everything done before the end of the day is hard sometimes.
If you work at HHS ( Hospital Houskeeping System ) at Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center watch out !
Transporter (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – June 7, 2016
This job is contracted through the hospital I transported patients to get x-rays and test ran it is basically just a orderly job but HHS just makes the job look and sound very good. I would have stayed but ended up resigning because I was treated very bad and was mistreated by the employees that I worked with. This is nothing but a kid job it has teenagers working here the hours is not that great and the pay is not that great either for all the running in the hospital that you do putting people in wheelchairs and rolling stretchers down the hall. You also have to take CPR in order to do this job in the first place you have to work with somebody by your side if you don't have CPR. yes I have CPR training but not by choice you have a phone on you that never stops ringing it becomes very annoying. If you like teenagers that bother you all the time and I do mean ALL THE TIME and can't keep from touching you then this is the job for you. Management at HHS is very unresponsive and weak if you report anything don't expect anything to get done or get resolved because it won't. I wished that I never applied to a job like this one.
Telephone Operator (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – February 23, 2016
typical day is answer a phone all day long which I didn't mind I didn't care for the treatment that I received from other employees transferring calls and looking up room numbers on a computer. The room that I received calls was small and confining management was ok. The job was ok
My manager was nice and very informing
Confined work space / employees need to watch the way they treat others
