Admitting Registrar (Former Employee), Hartford, CT – May 26, 2013
Challenging day high demand for accurate information obtained. I learned how to multi task in an extremely high paced position. My experience in management is to know that they are supportive in all aspects of your job. Co-workers all have different personalities and are treated with respect all the time and acknowledge their opinions all the time. – more... I really didn't experience any difficult parts of the job. The enjoyable part was pleasing the people I was involved with. – less
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Tulsa, OK – November 13, 2012
Pros: helping other people and learning a new field of work
Cons: short breaks
Went in early and worked non-stop until lunch and then after lunch worked non-stop checking patients in and out and entering patient information until it was time to go home. I worked in mulitple doctors offices with the vacation relief/float pool.
I learned that each office has the same responsibilities but each doctor wanted things done their specific – more... way.
My co-workers were dedicated and professional.
The hardest part of the job of working in the float pool is getting used to all the different doctors' offices individual way of doing things.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and making new friends. – less
A typical day at work would entail me setting patients up to wash themselves, helping patients to get dressed and ready for PT/OT. Recording intake from breakfast and output for bathroom privilages. Making patients bed positioning patients for lunch and recordind intake and output again. Answering call bells through out the day for any assistance needed. – more... I learned alot about time management. Management throughout Saint Francis was always helpful. I also learned alot from my co-workers. The hardest part of my day would be the constant post ops coming to the floor while trying to sustain care for the ones already settled. The most enjoyable part of my day is to cater to my patients making sure they are comfortable with a smile. – less
Clerical (Former Employee), Clerical – October 23, 2012
Pros: fair compensation competitive with city hospitals
Cons: shaky management, management making employees take the fall for themselves, manipulative management teams, management backbiting
I lived and breathed SFH and was a real yes woman/rah rah type employee who was always there, always being a great cheerleader for the hospital, volunteer, very loyal, and happy it helped raise my family. I THOUGHT I would retire from there. I "retired" alright...they forced me out is what they did. I was told that I was being placed in a certain position – more... to cool down two other employees that didn't get alone, even though they had worked together over 20 years. The second day in the position, the Lead person took me aside and told me that I was put in this position because they were getting rid of me and that is how they did it...was to give their unwanted employees to this particular Lead because she would make any employee want to quit. I was insulted in a very big way...I was shocked. I confronted my supervisor and was called a liar...she didnt try to encourage me that it was all wrong and that was not going to happen...no, she just told me that I was lying. I worked there longer than anyone else in that department and I really feel they were intimidated for some reason.
How does a loyal, solid employee with 25 years of golden reviews all the sudden be turned out and called a liar. How does that type of employee all the sudden become a loser employee in the matter of a few months? I will never understand how this hospital system let this happen. I reported this but to no avail...
I value my time spent there...some of the best working years but it is no longer the same place that it was. A lot has changed for the bad in the last 2 years there. I hope that the hospital outlives this "management" team that is dragging the hospital down and driving away what were once loyal, happy, and great employees. – less

Receptionist (Former Employee), McAlester, OK – September 2, 2012
I enjoyed working at St Francis Warren Clinic. Everyday was a new expierecne, if something needed to get done I would do my best to get it done. If I was unsure or needed some guidance there was always someone to help. If questions arose as to responiblities of any job we could always rely on management to help. The most enjoyable part of my job was – more... always meeting new people, being able to talk with the patients and help in anyway I could. – less

Joined the Desktop Team and then had Open Heart Surgery. The employee's graciously donated vaction time that I needed to complete recovery and return to work. During recovery at home I learned about using Softgrid and upon returning to work at the Hospital, I started creating virtual application packages.

St. Francis was a great place to work for but this past year they have been having layoffs so it is very unstable. This is why I am looking for other jobs during the day. I am a stepdown, telemetry and medsurge RN. I have been an RN since March 2009 and love caring for patients.
