    I have been working at Centerpoint Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Study hours, nice co workers,

    Cons

    To many patients for one tech, compensation is not competitive, health insurance is an absolute joke, holidays and weekends required, lack of appreciation (even long time employees), and you get points for taking off no matter the issue, they fire to many employees with no legit basis

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees and pay to keep the good ones, good employees don't come every day, without good employees your facility will continue on a downward spiral. use common since, sympathy, and morals when addressing the point system as some things in life do and always will take priority over any job. Lastly it is extremely sad to tell people I work for a hospital and carry my spouses insurance due to the horrible plans offered. I work for a mega health care system and am offered the worst insurance, does that make sense?

    Pros

    Generic Prescriptions are free. Co-workers on evening shift

    Cons

    Management, lack of incentives for shifts needing coverage, lack of appreciation from management. The fact that it is a FOR PROFIT hospital. Not having Medium size gloves anywhere in the department, lack of supplies.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to staff. Help when help is needed. Give incentives to employees for extra shifts picked up where needed. Don't call night shift workers at 1pm to ask questions that can wait for answers.

    I worked at Centerpoint Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being a very busy and often filled-to-capacity hospital, you can learn a lot about your chosen field in health care. Time and workload moves fast in busy areas like the ER and ICU.

    Cons

    Insane workload for Techs at times in the ER and other departments.

    It is virtually impossible to be proactive in your job. It's constant damage control mode.

    If you're not an RN, there is virtually no career advancement. Paramedics and EMT's are not recognized as anything but glorified techs, and without acknowledgment of nationally licensed scope of practice that could be used to better the efficiency and customer wait times.

    Patient Care and ER Techs, although absolutely essential to the patient care process, are not fairly compensated for the ever-expanding list of job duties they have to assimilate to. This is very closely related to the incomplete and outdated job description that HCA has for these positions. It would seem almost intentional that the job description is vague and not updated, in order to keep the salaries low for the Techs, and maintain the impression that these valuable employees are easily replaceable and not essential to the patient care process.

    Advice to Management

    How about a healthy pay raise for full time and PRN technicians in all departments? Also, create ways to increase job skills and certifications for technicians, so that advancement is possible. But.... if there is no intention of raising wages after several years of experience and a growing skill set, please remove the stigma that technicians are the "catch all" for new tasks and responsibilities that nurses can't or won't do.
