Supportive work environment
Patient Care Technician I (Part-time) (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – January 2, 2015
Unity Hospital (division of Rochester Regional Health System) has been a wonderful place to start my healthcare career. My position as Patient Care Technician in the emergency department is a challenging and fulfilling job. Every shift sees different patients and a wide variety of procedures and patient care. Management and co-workers are supportive and great team players; everyone pulls together especially during times of high patient volume. The hardest part of the job is being with someone as they pass away and/or being with the family as they learn of their loved ones fate. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping people in their time of need. This is irregardless of whether their need is assistance to the bathroom, a hand to hold during a procedure, or just a kind person to talk to during what can be a very anxious time.
