    I worked at Porter Valparaiso Hospital Campus part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to help patients in the Release of Information Department receive records in a timely, confidential manner.

    Cons

    I had to audit a lot of medical records for unclear diagnoses and discuss the doctors mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    I did like doing different jobs in the Medical Records department. I think this is a great practice to continue over time.

    I have been working at Porter Valparaiso Hospital Campus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like the new head of registration. She has a good head on her shoulders.

    Cons

    Zero recognition from managers. Very small raises. Very much about the money, not about the employees and patients. 37% employee satisfaction rate. I cannot wait to get a new job. The CEO only cares about you if you're in the ER or higher up...the parts where the hospital "shines" the most and gives no recognition to the underdogs.... who this place cannot run without. I'm not proud to work for Porter. Useless meetings called all the time for reasons that honestly do not matter to my job.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more. Recognize the small guys. You can't run the hospital without us. Stop calling useless meetings.

    I worked at Porter Valparaiso Hospital Campus as an intern

    Pros

    Mentored in many aspects of hospital management and departments. All employees encountered were eager to give advice and teach interns in hospital functions.

    Cons

    Not given opportunity to see projects through from start to finish due to being sent to many various departments when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Allow interns to work on hospital teams from start to finish and learn the ins and outs on an important organizational project.

    Pros

    Wanting to be there for the patients, they are our whole reason for being at our place of work. I Love being there for them. We often are seeing patients at the worst time in there lives.

    Cons

    Working for an outside company (We are a outsourced department along with Housekeeping and Maintenance)
    We are hospital employees but run by an outside company.
    They sometimes think we are just robots instead of people

    Advice to Management

    Please send the outside company packing and just get us a department manager like the way it was before being outsourced. Please Please Please

    Pros

    The only good reason to work at Porter Valparaiso Hospital Campus is the benefit if you work there they pay 100% for x-rays and test as long as you have it dine at Porter Hopsital. The insurance covers 90% then the company writes off the rest. The doctors of Porter even say that we are under payed. They are finally getting enough instruments , so the doctors can do their job properly. There are doctors that support us on paying us more to keep experience technicians so we don't leave.

    Cons

    Porter hospital is cheap. Their salary for employees are below market price. They don't supply enough staff to get the job done. supervisors that are supposed to be working supervisors don't work at all even when your really short. The way they treat their employees I surprised the hospital is still running. There is a lot of favoritism. When people are on call they should get payed double time when called out since you get payed straight time for holidays when you work. In a lot of department there are a lot of chiefs and not that many Indians. They shouldn't hire supervisors with no experience. Supervisore should take call just like regular staff. I f they don't change their ways then they won't have a hospital to worry about building a new one. Start cracking down on the employees that hold you downand don't work and start giving more credit to the employess that deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your employees. Just because we don't have a college education doesn't mean that we don't have common sense, and good ides to help make things run easier.
