rn nurse (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 2, 2016
Poor pay, poor managemanet. Charge nurse called in w the flu and a fever and she was told she COULD NOT call in BC our director didn't want to come in and work a nightshift, so she came in.... W the flu. I got hired on nightshift supposed to be for one mo but ended up being kept there for most of the time i was there. Constantly understaffed, dangerous nurse to pt ratio. Never enough nurse aides, ever. If we ever did have adequate staffing we would be floated so we were again a skeleton crew. Had to fight over computers to pass meds or chart. Gossipy crew (esp management) Some great nurses there, cant say the same for mgmt. They're all "yes men" . Favoratism at every turn... I wouldn't work for baptist if I was homeless and they begged me to come back. Administration talked the talk, but def didn't walk the walk. I felt very abused and safe harbor was called mult times
Most of the crew worked like family
Very little if any breaks (had to literally hide to eat, sometimes in the bathroom)

This used to be the place to work back in the early 2000s. But not they have a service line director/manager that is just the lowest kind of person possible. There is no encouragement to better yourself. If you find a better position elsewhere, he takes your resignation personally and tells you, and I quote, "why are you doing this to ME". Then he will place you on the no rehire list for the entire system. He has ruined careers of some very talented people by his personal agenda. This kind of thing should not happen by anyone in leadership. I would not recommend anyone working for this guy. The system is a good hospital system it just their choice in leadership is appalling.

Behavioral Health RN (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 26, 2013
Love the people I work with plus upper management is great. Everyday is different and never boring. Most enjoyable part is seeing the patients mental health improve from the way they come in. I enjoy caring for my patients. The hardest part is treating dementia pts and what a sad disease it is.
LVN - Progressive Cardiac Care Unit (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 16, 2013
While loving nursing, this particular organization did not allow for breaks and very frueqent calls to work overtime. Unble to chart during the shift had to be done after the next shift arrived. They also did not use the bedside reporting facit, many reports were taped, and no way of asking the previous nurse questions. I learned alot about the cardiovasular system, but very few formal training events
Patient sitter (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 15, 2013
Great place to work. Good patients and great co-workers. The thing I learned is that patients are scared and you can help them by assuring them that they are going to be fine. The best part of this job is that you can ask for assistance if you need it. The most enjoyable part is that the patients grow to like and miss you.
