Texas Health has its perks. Unit I work on is unorganized, supervisors are not professional. Manager is by the book according to THR policy. Work day is overloaded. Too many tasks required of TECHs. We do Vitals,draw labs, assist patients, chart, feed, change patients and help with anything the nurse needs. We have at max 12 patients at a time.I feel it is not safe for one person to have that many patients to look after. As Unit Secretary there is way too much responsibility. We are expected to admit, discharge patients, answer phones, and call lights.We watch telemetry monitors and chart every hour on that. We do our own billing and charges for discharged patients and we order, stock, and refill supplies. The most enjoyable part of my job is if I get to work with a nurse that is willing to help out with his/he patients if I am busy.
Poor supervising, benefits for part time employees to high in cost, lack of staff cooperation
