Patient Care Technician | New Port Richey, FL | May 17, 2016
Great company to work for!
I started off as a PCT at Mease Countryside hospital. I worked on a cardiovascular telemetry floor. Anyone who works tele can tell you - it's a heavy floor! Honestly, this is where I learned the grunt work, and learned time management. Staff was a little clique-y when I first started, but was sad to see me transfer. The nurses that start off as techs are usually the ones who will help you out in a heartbeat! Once you become a PCT, you are able to do a little more than just the basic CNA duties. These include blood sugars, and foley insertions (as per orders). I had a hard time getting lunch coverage during some days, but quickly learned to prioritize. Learning what you can do before and after your break is important, and communicating your plan to your nurses is even more important. Make sure you take a lunch break. You will burn out! The hardest part of the job was the shift wars between days and nights. People seem to think night shift props their feet up and eat bon bons all night. The most enjoyable part of the job is making friends with other techs! I ended up transferring after a while to a different hospital. I now float all over instead of staying on one floor, AND I LOVE IT. If you aren't fond of working with a particular person, chances are, you won't have to deal with them very often. After a good few months, I proved my worth, and everyone loves working with me. Staff is great! I love working near ICU. If you ever want to learn anything, those ICU nurses wil

In-house Security-esque with great pay and benefits
In house security gig that tends to be paid at the higher ends of industry average ($10-$12 /hr) vice pay at contractual residences ($8.05-$9.00). All pay is base pay, then add in differentials for nights and weekends. No overtime opportunities, outside of mandatory training [NAPPI, Hazmat]. Annual pay raises and bonuses are nice but not extravagant, in-line with 5%-10% of base. Great job to fill the interim between another fulfilling career with advancement opportunities.... or a killer choice for a second job and/or retirment job. CANNOT beat the pay and benefits with any other Unarmed Security gig in Florida unless it's a Government Contract or with Armed/TWIC/Security Clearance combinations. Baycare promotes from within, mostly, and does have a great culture of taking care of their employees. Just choose your Hospital Group wisely for your desires, within Baycare System, as each does things slightly differently. Each Hospital group is different in management (e.g. St Jospeh's, St Anthony's, Morton Plant Mease, Winter Haven are all "Baycare" but are run differently). St. Anthony's and St. Joseph's are Security Department's with handcuffs, investigations, and the management's support of doing real security work. Morton Plant Mease is the illusion of Security for compliance sake. No experience at Winter Haven as they are recently acquired to Baycare. General attitude for all of them, though, is "show-up, do work, don't reinvent the wheel." Additional training
ProsHigh pay and benefits for Unarmed Security
Consreactionary/non-present management, a lot of down time, deducted breaks that you don't get, no real security.

Best home health position I’ve had
The company is fantastic and the people in charge of the offices are always professional and seem sincere in their desire for quality patient care. I do feel the normal pressure to maintain low numbers of visits which is sometimes frustrating. This job requires a lot of independence- way more so than most home health. You completely manage your schedule and work with coworkers if you are unable to complete visits. You assign COTAs for treatments on their schedules. The documentation system and scheduling computer system is relatively easy to pick up if you are used to computerized documentation. This home health is not TKAs and other basic needs for the most part but rather medically complex cases and you are expected to know the diseases, review medications, and perform a wound dressing change for a temporary one until a wound nurse can get out. The training is phenomenal at the office level but field level I wish that I had had one more day or a slower schedule on my training days so I could follow along with questions. Still, every time I called in when stuck, someone picked up the phone immediately and walked me through. Meetings are professional but we do laugh and enjoy working together. The system tells you who your teammates are for that patient and it is common to call to give information of changes. The 24 triage nurse has been phenomenal. Overall this is by far the best job I have ever had. I feel like my education and clinical judgment are respected, that I can ma
ProsTeam approach, respect, true learning advancement

Drink the Kool-Aid and You Will Be Fine
As long as you pucker up and smooch smooch all will be well. If you disagree with the way things are going and voice your concerns, well, your career at Baycare is over. They will blacklist you meaning that should you apply for any internal jobs you will be looked over regardless of qualification. Management will look you directly in the eye and lie to you. Nurses and PCT's are just human resources. Don't like it? Leave. We will replace you tomorrow. Nurses run hospitals. Nurses have no management training, well most don't. No management training, yet in charge? Bad combination. Personally, experienced reverse race discrimination, age discrimination and reverse gender discrimination here. Remember that it is a job. Make your money and go home. Don't think they care about you because I assure you, they do not. Backbiting co-workers. Smile to your face yet when you are not looking they are in the office throwing you under the bus. Now all of the above goes on at most hospitals. The issue is that many of this system's hospitals give the impression that they are faith based. In doing so they present themselves to be held to a higher standard....and they fail. Do not wish to be held to the higher standard? Change the names of those facilities and take down all of the religious imagery. Pay is subpar. In healthcare in general, they way you make money is to hop from job to job. If you stay at one job for more than 2 years well you are hurting yourself.
ProsIt is a job
ConsReally horrible management, from the top on down

Don't hold your breath.
The hiring process was hilarious and fun along with the working environment but not every good time will last. I started with a strong team and quickly learned what was needed to perform the job, but no suggestions are taken and change happens at a snail's pace. There is no such understanding of being streamlined. Many things used every day were very unnecessary and support staff to maintain the multiple systems were very lacking which resulted in an unreliable processing environment with creates too many opportunities for errors to occur. The company has a great motto and enthusiasm for taking care of the patient/customer/guest, but the employees are the ones carrying all the burden of providing a great experience with the worst tools possible and no matter what you had to sacrifice for the company you are treated as a common slattern even though you may be highly regarded as a valuable employee by your peers. There is no reward for any sacrifices made and the unreliable systems used create an unstable environment. The benefits were better than average but make sure you read the fine print. This company is great for getting your hands dirty if that's what you enjoy, but don't expect any exceptions for any extra work that you give. Management keeps changing, but there's no forgiveness. Our new CFO/CEO seems to want to give back, but I was an unfortunate victim of poor systems management but I'm still willing to go back! The team building is out of this world!
ConsBeing used for a stepping stone

I truly enjoy working for BayCare
I came to Florida from Ohio as a travel nurse in hopes to eventually relocate. My goal was to take assignments in a variety of hospitals and clinical settings as well as network to find out where the best jobs, location, schools etc. were. After a very unpleasant experience at an HCA hospital I was assigned to BayCare, specifically in a small free standing ER, Bardmoor Emergency Center. It was like a ray of light. I found my experience there to be totally opposite from that of the HCA facility. I was welcomed, appreciated and supported from day one. The system as a whole is very well ran. The processes, policies and procedures are standardized and simplified throughout the hospital system. They take excellent care of their nurses. The teamwork and atmosphere fostered professional development and exemplary patient care. My favorite of the hospitals within the system is Bardmoor Emergency Center. The management is supportive and appreciative. They made me feel like a team member even though I was just a traveler at the time. I later hired onto the hospital permanently because of the wonderful experience that I had. I highly recommend BayCare to any nurse who may be seeking employment in Florida. They have a large hospital system that is so standardized that if you understand processes at one facility you can walk into any of them with minimal direction and hit the ground running. It is easy to pick up shifts at any of the hospitals and they offer great incentives and pay.

Great Place to work
Baycare Mobile Pool is a great organization except for a very few issues. They offer a great rate of pay, housing assistance (up to 6 months) and benefits after your second contract. They offer perks such as CE Direct, a great resource for keeping track of your CE's and have several programs to help you such as an EAP, if needed. Best part of the job is the flexibility in contracts. Typically 13 weeks, you can move throughout the Baycare Health system to their many different hospitals. There are great teams in the emergency departments who appreciate the help. Hardest part of the job is adapting to ever changing policies that seem different for every hospital. They can also cancel your contract with little notice and struggle to fit you in somewhere else. Another downside is communication. Management is typically slow in responding to issues that may arise so you need to keep calling and nagging before you get an answer. I started a new contract and was called by the previous hospital wondering why I hadn't shown up to work! Very difficult to talk to management as they are probably answering the myriad of other callers who are having similar problems. All in all, Baycare is a great organization and offer a variety of different job positions, depending on your experience and preference. Good luck!
ProsBenefits, pay, team concept, friendly staff
ConsPoor communication, difficult to reach management, contracts may be cancelled abruptly

Negative, No support for clinical staff (RN's) Bad Management
Bullying does exist among nurses, nurses are mean to each other and management allows it. Favorites are played, education is not encouraged, all Baycare cares about is how fast a patient is seen, not the quality of patient care. They hire nurses with zero experience in a speciality, have managers oversee RN's who have no clinical experience, do not know the meaning of team work!! And do not want motivated self starters because they intimate everyone else. Patient education is non existant and nurses who are suppose to be leaders are lazy. Bad place to work, aweful for patients. What I learned is I will never recomend anyone go into nursing unless they take it all the way to DNP or PHd level. What I learned is nurses are not respected like they once were due to petty in fighting and not standing together as a profession. The hardest part of the job is trying to be a good nurse among dishonest people who want to cut corners at every turn, rush quality care and compromise patient education all in the name of getting patients "in" fast with minumal wait time!! Then don't schedule so many patients at the same time! Team meeting are a joke and there are no clinical goals or support for nurses on a daily basis. Make sure you understand the Law before you go work anywhere here because your liscense will be on the line!! Enough said!
ConsManagement, Bullying allowed, No Support, Long hours, short staffed

Getting too big
When I first started working for Baycare they were just lifting off obtaining more buildings and services. They got to be too big for themselves and now its all about patients being customers. That mindset is fine depending on the department you work in. I was on the floor for 3 years and loved the environment. The management team was amazing and my co-workers were great. I then attempted to work in the ER of my hospital leaving a great floor and manager to go to a totally different environment with a manager that I was warned about. I have never had any issues in all my time working for this company but once in the ER with said Manager there were so many issues I ended up quitting my job and leaving. There was no room for schedule changes, shift changes, or any type of flexibility with said manager. This manager has a huge chip on their shoulder and makes most of the employees there miserable for no apparent reason. There is something to be said when the primary staff of your unit is comprised mostly of pool employees. In regards to the patients being customers the demographic group is primarily homeless, addicts, and alcoholics. These "customers" frequently come in and verbally abuse staff as well as physically and nothing is ever done. Staff is expected to "serve" the "customers" at all costs no matter what because of hospital scores. Baycare is now among the many money driven hospital businesses.

Baycare medical group breast surgery
My experience at baycare medical group breast surgery formerly health point was not a good one. The manager is constantly going back and forth with her decisions in regards to the job, she argues with you from eating something in the kitchen provided by baycare for the staff. To the gifts patients provide for us, she has preferences only with one employee who can do anything she wants let it be another employee. She tells the physicians one thing and the staff another. If you are helping a pt and stay 2 minutes pass your time she will argue with you and say theres no overtime she watches your time like a hawk. When is convenient to her you can take a 1 hour lunch or 30 minutes. The physicians/coworkers/ and especially her all talk down to you as if you were some dumb uneducated person. If you complain to cbo/practice administrator they will retaliate and make it all in their favor to make you look like the person not following baycare values as if you were disrespecting the corporation. 2 Favorite things they tell you here "suck it up buttercup" by the lady dr. And the manager "girls not all manager are like me just remember there are worst places out there" I would rathter take my chances, the grass is not always greener on the other side but definetly I expected more from baycare as an employee terrible mind games.
