Student Volunteer (Former Employee) – Chicago – September 5, 2018
The time there gave me a chance to learn different work areas and what to expect if one day applying for a job in the HIM department that it will be stressful and fast paced but the reward is making a difference.
Business Office Volunteer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 5, 2018
A typical day consisted of working with the #1 Biller of the department I created a spreadsheet for her so she could go through the spreadsheet and see who she needed to bill for that period or if payments have already come through for the ones previously billed. I had no billing experience but learned rapidly through the creation of the spreadsheet how to bill the different codes and medical terminology is already in my back ground because I was a CNA for 22 years, so it made that part of the job fairly easy. Management was great! I was able to get a lot of hands on in the business office so that I could fill in when someone was absent. The culture of the office was friendly, a lot of camaraderie, very fast paced. The hardest part of the job was playing catch up because I only worked 3 days so my work would pile up from Thursday, and Friday. Monday's was spent catching up so Tues, and Weds, I could be on point with the days work. What I enjoyed most about the job was that I got to learn and do new things which I did not know. ICD 10, Coding, Billing. It was
Learning and doing different skill sets.

South Shore Hospital was a fun and caring place t work.
Staff Nurse, Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – South Weymouth, MA – July 23, 2018
I worked on the orthopedic unit at South Shore Hospital. The staff was very caring and compassionate. Well organized and a joy to work with. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing the patients progress and eventual discharge.

Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Weymouth, MA – April 30, 2018
working as a unit coordinator was the worst job I have ever had. I was talked down to on multiple occasions when i was just trying to do my job. The pay is absolutely awful for the amount of stress and responsibility that falls on you. the job responsibilities were those of a "receptionist" when on multiple occasions i would be in patient rooms helping them because certain aides wouldn't, or i couldn't find them. I even changed a patients dirty linens because i felt so bad for the patient. I would never work at south shore hospital ever again and would not recommend it. Management was awful and didn't know what we went through every day. None of the nursing aides had phones, so when I would try to find help for a patient locating an aide was next to impossible. It infuriated me because i wished i could just go help the patient but it was "beyond my scope" the poor patients are the reason why you should be in health care, and when you run and hide when they need help is just so disheartening.
poor work environment, high stress, lack of support, lazy NA's
stressful multiple task not in job description but covered et al
Interior Designer (Former Employee) – Weymouth, MA – February 26, 2018
Loved my job did not like management and lack of appreciation. Was constantly assigned task not in my job description but they said it was the and other. Many deadlines lack of direction from management of priorities created lots of confusion and stress.
Great people to work with, compensation does not reflect work
Cardiac Stress Tech (Former Employee) – Weymouth, MA – February 21, 2018
hospital in a whole is a great hospital to work for. However i see a shift in the hospital dynamic in the future. Before being laid off there will be no more raises, overtime, and the 403 match was lowered. I loved my coworkers, however I do not feel like we were adequately compensated for our job.
