SITTER (Former Employee), SAINT PETERSBURG, FL – February 23, 2013
AS A FORMER SITTER I CAN SAY THAT SAINT ANTHONY'S HOSPITAL IN SAINT PETERSBURG FLORIDA IS THE WORST PLACE TO WORK. THERE IS NO ROOM FOR MOVING UP IN THE COMPANY, THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT SOME OF THE WORKERS ARE IN SCHOOL. YOU MUST WORK YOUR SCHEDULE AROUND THEM. PATIENTS ARE VERY AGGRESSIVE AND VIOLENT AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THEIR PUNCHING BAGS. – more... NO ONE HELPS US EVEN IF WE CALL FOR HELP, PATIENT TECH'S AND NURSES EXPECT YOU TO CHANGE PATIENT, GIVE THEM BATH'S, ETC EVEN THOUGH WE ARE NO CERTIFIED OR TRAINED TO DO SO. WE WORK FULL TIME HOURS AND WE ARE ALL PRN EMPLOYEES AND DON'T EVEN GET PAID ENOUGH FOR THE THINGS WE DO AND GO THROUGH WHILE AT WORK. SAVE YOUR TIME AND YOUR LIFE BY DOING WHAT I DID AND WORK FOR ANOTHER COMPANY! BY THE WAY, THE NURSES AND TECH'S ALL TALK ABOUT EACHOTHER AND BACKSTAB EACHOTHER, THEY BOSS US AROUND AND NEVER GIVE US A BREAK, EVEN A BATHROOM BREAK – less
Helping patients in their time of need, making sure they had the best possible experience while in our unit.
Nurse Tech (Former Employee), Oklahoma city – February 7, 2013
While working for St. Anthony's I was able to learn many things from the medical field which helped me perform to the best of my abilities on a daily basis. I was a part of a great unit and nursing staff which strived for excellence on a daily basis so our patients needs were met in a timely manner. I enjoyed working with my colleagues, they were very – more... helpful and were always there for me in difficult situations that presented itself. The most enjoyable part of it, was the "thank you" i would get from the patient and their families, that alone made my day. – less
Patient Access Representative I & II (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FL – November 28, 2012
Pros: great cafeteria
Cons: little people take the fall for incidents
Great place to work as long as you don't get caught up in the drama of all your coworkers lives, don't use the phone or internet for personal use even if a manager or other coworkers do it because they will pin it all on you and fire you. Quickly changing staff, always a new face around there. Work was fast paced and easy enough once you got the flow.

Cons: other department staff is wonderful
Walk on eggshells everyday. Middle management is very disrespectful. Co-workers are backstabbers. Unable to sit if no work is available. I thoroughly enjoy going on portables, emergency room and operating room just to get out of the department.
