Transporter | Houston, TX | Jan 9, 2017
very productive, customer service was the best
1. Introduces self to patient upon arrival to nursing unit and explains where they are being transported. Communicates positively and effectively with patients and guests, as well as internal customers. Promotes a positive image of the department and Hospital through verbal and non-verbal communication with all persons and compliance with personal appearance guidelines.

Reports to nursing unit/department to notify staff of patient transport. a. Request patient chart. b. Reviews patient passport for completeness and asks questions as needed to clarify handoff information. c.

" Exploitation vs Excellence"
General Hospital orientation is welcoming in comparison to other facilities in San Antonio, but once you are working in your designated department watch your back. The Methodist Healthcare System may preach the pillars of excellence and standards, but that is quite frankly a joke in my experience. Just like their mission is to "Serve Humanity to Honor God" lol. I am proud and blessed to be a Christian, but I have never been tormented or treated so poorly in my entire career. I was disillusioned by thinking this was a company based upon christian values. As an organization they may have a vision of greatness, however it is focused on promoting themselves and not their employees. Management never smiles and is consistently negative in their behavior visible for all to witness. Too bad they really don't follow their so-called mission to work as a team in a culture dedicated to improving their deliver of healthcare. Customers are not always treated the same, especially the ones with insurance. I found it very offensive that chairity patients are given free medicine, transporation, and equipment, while paying customers weren't offered similar assistance. For some reason they seem to go above and beyond for some, but others are left to their own vices. I personally observed physician's ordering and perforiming costly testing and procedures that could and should have been performed in an outpatient setting. There are identifiable situations where patients are kept in the

Food Service Associate | Houston, TX | Feb 22, 2019
Working as a Food Service Assistant at Methodist really sucked.
In all honesty, I did not spend a lot of time at Methodist, but the time that I did spend there was horrible. If you are a person that has anxiety you may want to think twice about working here. They are not very understanding of people who have anxiety. I don't know about other mental illnesses. The only thing was the pay and the benefits. So from what I noticed about the culture at Methodist is that there is a hierarchy system. The doctors are treated like gold while the food service workers are treated like grass. Food service managers do not do their job well. They also do not train you well. They didn't know how to control the level of bullying and mistreatment of new employees, so at the end of the day, you end of feeling like nothing. There was a lot of negative energy in that kitchen. Also, the employees that have been there longer will talk about you in all kinds of ways and even in front of your face because they know that the managers are not going to fire them. You also have to do a lot of sucking up or otherwise you would become the black sheep. Also, managers showed a lot of favoritism. Nobody in that is kitchen really your friend. Some people are nice though. Just do not tell anybody your business. If you too quiet than people still treat you like nothing. So you can't win or lose working as a food service worker at Methodist. I all honesty the food service part of Methodist is filled with of bunch of miserable people who in all honesty hate their jobs and are

Registered Nurse | Houston, TX | Jan 23, 2019
Respectable company, but depends on the unit
This is coming from working on a medical-surgical floor. It is hard to want to stay working in this field. There are some days where you are so busy that you cannot take a proper lunch and you are staying overtime to chart (this is day shift), there are few days where it is more balanced and you are leaving on time. The call light system is noisy and is connected to your work phone, so any "high priority alarms" will go to all of the staff's phones if it is not answered immediately. You cannot possibly be in 2 places at once, neither can your PCA. Sometimes it is difficult to coordinate care when the different specialties of doctors involved in your patient's case do not speak to one another, and the attending doctor asks you, the RN, to call them. RNs are always the middle-man to connect all the pieces. Some patients are so complex that they have urology, cardiology, gynecology, neurology, oncology, and palliative care ALL on board at once. I am not exaggerating. And imagine having to coordinate care across all of those specialties while you are caring for 5, at times 6 patients. Also, orders sometimes get missed (because the previous unit/shift was also busy) and you are responsible for getting those done, STAT... so your phone never stops ringing. Communication between the doctors really needs work. Burn-out happens easily due to the patient loads and staffing ratios. Teamwork can be difficult on larger units. Leadership is very involved, however. There is undoubtedly much
ProsAwesome benefits, leadership involved, cutting-edge healthcare
Conslack of work/life balance if you are in hospital committees, staffing ratios for RNs and PCAs, poor communication between doctors, overwhelming patient loads, easy burn-out
Help Desk Analyst | Houston, TX | Feb 23, 2014
Productive, friendly but management needs to work on iCare values and be honest
I came in as a contract to permanent IT Help Desk Analyst, and appreciated the detailed training, and working environment.Seem to be a place where growth and advancement was possible if you knew the right people.I loved the job and was a proud contractor for Methodist, worked hard everyday and was acknowledged for my progress, and was a top 3 performer every week.I was told to my face by management that when my 90 day contract was up that I had earned and proved myself and would be transitioned to a permanent Methodist employee.Well as promised at the end of my 3 month contract they informed me to apply online on a job posting that was specifically posted for my transition process.It was the greatest feeling knowing that I've found a permanent home for life, well 3 weeks went by so I decided to followup to see where the process was at, and got a reply from my IT supervisor that they dont have time, then few days later they hired more contractors and called me into their office and said my progression was to slow and that Help Desk wasnt for me, and If I continued to work there that a patient would probably die.I remember sitting there in my manager office while she and another IT supervisor were saying the complete opposite prior from 3 weeks before when the same people were saying all the positive praises were now terminating my contract and escorted me out of the building as a unemployed contractor.I learned a lesson that working hard gets you terminated and performing subp

Houston Methodist is the best Hospital to work for.
Houston Methodist of caurse has no competition. It is simply the best hospital to work for. A Magnet Hospital. You have everything you need to for proffesional growth. You have all the resources to help you to provide excellent quality care to your patients and they have a group of multi disciplinary team of healthcare providers from all departments that work collaboratively to discuss individual plan of care for each patient. Their model is Family oriented, both the patients and their families are involved in their plan of care. They have a big educational department for professional excellence. They educate their nurses based on evidence based practice and evaluate their skills on a yearly basis for proficiency. They have nursing educators ( Cinical experts) in every unit for resources and inservices etc. The technology is excellent. FORTUNE Margazine ranked Houston Methodist among first 100 best companies to work for. I am actually finding it difficult to leave because the working environment and the culture makes it feel like a second home to me. I have been in Houston Methodist for 16 years plus. They take care of their staff and everyone is treated with respect. People come from all over the world to get treated at Houston Methodist because of their dedicated team of experts in various diseases. I love excellence and Houston Methodist depicts nothing but excellence.
ProsWe are always showered with gifts, student reimbursement, encouraged to further our education or get certified to become an expert in what we do.

Pharmacy Technician | Houston, TX | Mar 12, 2013
A wonderful curative environment with positive personnel
arrival 1:30pm for 2:00pm shift for shift review. check daily surgical log and situational issues during those surgeries in order to prepare for cases not going well. Admixture of specialized drugs for cardiac procedures. Preperation of medications for scheduled surgeries for the next day. Batch prep of syringes of medications used daily. Stock fluids for next day. As a case would go "south", be required to post in the OR suite, for the ability to run to and from the pharmacy as quickly as possible. This was an intense situation on a dailey basis, and I learned so much concerning cardiac surgery, the preparation for, the clean-up and preparing the patient to be moved to Cardian Intensive Care Unit. Very supportive management, Cardinal Health took over in mid-employment changing most of the procedural balances creating many issues. Co-worker from mornings had been in the facility for two years and was a great help to me as I was new to the OR procedures. A part of the job that was tough to deal with was when a patient would not survive the surgery, or not able to be revieved post-op. As this was new to me, I was like a child at christmas, eyes wide, taking in everything that was spoken, following procedures, watching and observing all that happened.
Prosworking in different locations than the usual large pharmacy, the setting was smaller sattelite pharmacies in specialized operating room facilities

Life Changing Experience
I have worked for Houston Methodist for 5 years come October. I cannot stress enough how much my life and overall happiness has improved since working with them. It's hard to imagine that in this fast-pace world we live, that anything can seem constant and safe, but that's exactly how I feel about my job. I have a wonderful job, and enlightening work-relationships! I know how much my team values me and what I bring to the company, and feeling valued and appreciated makes all the stress and challenges worth it every time. Houston Methodist cares about it's community, employees included. They encourage us to live healthy lifestyles, emotionally, physically, and mentally. The offer tuition reimbursement because they want their employees to further their education without money being a additional burden/hurdle. I myself have been a patient at Houston Methodist, as has my mother and several friends/ colleagues. Houston Methodist offers state of the art medical technology at an affordable/reasonable price. I can't thank them enough for the quality of life, and security they have given me. I show my appreciation and loyalty by coming to work every day, implementing ICARE values, and striving to be better and do better in all areas of my life.
ProsNot micromanaged, great people, flexible with school and child needs, ethical, tuition reimbursement, free wellness programs, discounted rates on insurance and cell phone plans

Same problem they had been dealing with in OPC 18 for years. You go to work, but you don't know when you can come home because you have to stay with the patient till there is a room available in the floors or ICU. Once there is, then you transfer the patient if you are lucky enough to be able to give report to the floor RNs. Once you have given report , you travel with the patient crossing 3 buildings to get to your destination and had to go back to OPC18 carrying a very heavy portable monitor back. No one cares if you haven't eaten for 12 hours or more or you are about to crawl. The you are required to go back to work the next day no matter how late you went home the night before. If you are on-call for the night, you can stay up to 16 hours or more working in another building where they do their on-call cases. Upper management has no visible solution to it despite of their ranks and big salaries. I always put up with a lot of things from my previous employers and stayed long but Houston Methodist truly sucked me out dry, so I had to leave before I get totally burned out. I think the only good thing that came out of working from there is that I lost a lot of weight....from starvation and overwork. It was my shortest employment ever.
