I worked for VHC for almost 6 years, and honestly, I don't regret it, but I wish I had left a long time ago. The medical assistants are overworked and lied to when they are hired. They tell them they will work for a certain department and next thing you know you are sent to another department to work at. While I was there, I noticed that this particular hospital goes through many medical assistants, managers, and even doctors. The workplace culture truly depends on the office you are working at. For instance, I worked at an office that was truly toxic and lacked teamwork and team players. The front desk staff are more concerned about judging the medical assistants, talking inappropriate things that patients can hear, online shopping, and so much more--sadly. I feel that no matter how much you have given to a department, you are out if you commit one offense. However, it seems that that goes depending on who you are. There have been staff members that commit unacceptable offenses, and they remain working. In contrast, others have done an insignificant offense and are dismissed regardless of their contribution to a department. The most enjoyable part of working is the bond you create with regular patients and the provider you are assigned to work for. Other than that, this organization needs a lot of improvement and to learn the value of medical assistants, not just the providers. Not to mention, set more zero-tolerance gossip rules.

former employee for quite a few years and I must say things have completely changed in a very negative way, In the past few months there have been instances of work place harassment, disrespect and total unprofessional behavior me. I have never witnessed such a negative work environment in my 14 plus years of experience in the medical field. Despite many written complaints to leadership nothing was done. HR needs to be completely replaced with staff that actually will take the time to adhere to employee complaints. Toxic employees upper Management and directors seems to relay on tactics that are cut throat, unfair, and play this political game at the expense of great employees.. Employees seem get away with a lot of underhanded unprofessional behavior which forces it's good employees to leave. I dedicated my time daily to the department juggling multiple roles, with little to no recognition. . No one should have to feel uncomfortable at their place of work .

Registered Nurse in Arlington, VA
on August 30, 2021
They require on "call" 8 hours every 2 weeks, guess what, you're always called in: mandatory overtime.They staff 2 nurses for 9 patients, there is rarely an EMT to help, then when there is a trauma, one nurse has to take care of that patient while the other is left with 8 ED patients to care for with no EMT. 1:8 ratio in the ED. Can't make this stuff up. Pretty abysmal work culture, management's answer to all of this is to send emails out telling us to be faster. This is an overwhelmingly unsafe and toxic work environment.
