Fun yet professional
The typical work day consisted of getting an update on what happened on the unit during the previous shift. You answer and direct phone calls to the appropriate party or department. A key part of this job was coordinating between all the different departments within the hospital. The cooperation of all the departments and staff was essential to being effective in my duties. My co-workers were fun but professional. They had a clear understanding of there duties which made my job easier. The most critical thing I learned was that when in doubt ask questions. This has helped me in all my future jobs. Asking questions makes us better at any job and in life in general.
I feel that this hospital practice scrupulous items. They give a sign on bonus and end up taking it back when one is terminated even after they have been there more than 6 months-1 year. Their nurses and some of the staff don't monitor their clients closely even on a medical-surgical unit or the ICU/CCU. Some staff even sleep instead of caring for their clients. Some of the nurses even aren't qualified to care for clients ER environment and ICU/CCU.These are unsafe practices compaired to some of the other hospitals I have worked for in California.
