COWORKERS WERE AWESOME TO WORK WITH
OUR COWORKERS WITH WHOM I WORKED FOR WERE A GREAT BUNCH OF NURSES DOING THE ABOVE AND BEYOND WITH OUR PATIENTS ENSURING THEIR WELL BEING
I work with others as team players, work under pressure long hours. I was a Internship student working long hours in my Spring Semester job for four months got along with the co-workers helping and learning more material in cisco, switches, routers, configuration, troubleshooting, networking administrators. I would go to with a co-workers to a patient's room to have wireless access on their laptop to be use the Internet.
MMC did not allow for professional or personal growth
I worked for McAllen Heart Hospital (MHH) when McAllen Medical Center (MMC) acquired MHH in March 2001. MMC held a lot of bad feelings towards MHH and did not want MHH to become a part of their organization. Due to these feelings, MMC did not allow for any opportunity for advancement or leadership roles during the time I was employed with them. Management positioned me as Assistant Director of Quality and hired a person with no quality experience as the Director and then told me to train her to be a Quality Director. The staff I worked with in the Quality Department were great and enjoyed my time with them and enjoyed my time training the new Quality Director inspite of the intent of senior leadership at that time.
Veryexciting, and every day filled with something new. Metnew people, learned many skills.
This place made me a well rounded Labor and Delivery room nurse where I became a staff nurse to charge nurse. They also provided the same benefits just like RGRH/HCA although RGRH provides better 401k percentage depending on years you work for the company as well as medical insurance. I do love McAllen Medical Center too and would not mind working with them again. I appreciate the place forever.
very autonomous position
my typical day consisted of reviewng my incidents, that transpired overnignt or the previous day, that was not updated when I left the previous day. I had to round on all the floors, to see what was going on. Talk to the directors of the units. I handled, complaints, grieviances, safety issues, compliance issues. My director was not very educated as far as college , she only had work experience, and was not available as needed. I had only 1 coworker, the secretary, and my director. I learned alot of processes, and had alot of interaction with some very important people.
Love this position. You get to see different kinds of emergencies in every level from minor to trauma.
