Medical Technologist, Mount Lebanon, PA - March 7, 2017
St. Clair Hospital is creating an image toward advanced healthcare and patient experience by remaining independent but competeing with big hospitals like UPMC and AGH but are not really much different. They offer a competitive wage and benefits compared to any other hospital. SCH boasts patient care but fail to realize that employees are patients, too. I had difficulty seeing providers that I desperately needed and found little flexibility with my department. Training was much longer and much less effective than it could be. Resources were scattered, training was rushed to fill the open slot with promises of finishing but never having time. It is too much to ask an employee not fully or properly trained to perform as well as others while not offering the tools for my position or a guide to expectations. A number one healthcare provider should give their employees the tools to succeed. Instead, they have promoted failure. They failed me and I, in turn, failed them.
