I really enjoyed working at St. David's Medical Center. There is a great working culture. The director of the department always insured we were taken care of and asked if we needed anything. We had meeting with the director from time to time to keep us all in the loop. The department had very little supervision, so the meetings were great. We were tight staffed and there were times when overtime was required to cover shifts. I would have never left if I didn't move away. My department even threw me a going away party when I was leaving. We still keep in touch. Great people.

Under the supervision of the Director, acquired all materials, equipment, and supplies. Stocked and restocked linen throughout twelve departments. Maintained current inventory records for materials and supplies. Within approved criteria, made open market purchases of special items of a general procurement nature and items to fulfill emergency requirements. Provided superb customer service with patients, nurses, doctors, vendors, and guests.
I love my patients and the people I get to work with
rn nurse (Current Employee) – Round Rock, TX – November 23, 2015
IMC is a 12 bed stepdown unit. Our patient to nurse ratio is 3-1. There are days when it can be 4-1. Our patients are all on telemetry and need a lot of care. We have no PCT so it is total patient care. From medication management, watching labs, wound care, blood transfusions to giving daily baths, we do it all! I love the people I get to work with as a team everyday and really value that we help eachother out as much as we do.
pharmacy (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 7, 2015
I dont envy anyone working for St David's, maybe the ICU nurses, but working in the pharmacy was a joke. The management was very new and had unrealistic expectations or would rely on me to do all the work but take all of the credit. you'd get, "talked to," about not clocking out for a break when in reality you never got a break. Just not a good place to work for if you don't like being taken advantage of and overworked.
Working for St. David's was a true pleasure during my tenure with the organization. I learned so much from the very knowledgeable Pharmacists and Technicians that were very eager to share their information so willingly.

Horrible management here at the Main location which is why they are always hiring and firing. They take advantage of you and will overwork you and not even care. Only do what benefits them and that is it.

They retaliate against you for doing the right thing don't work here to many bad things to list but they work you like a dog and don't give proper breaks as they should but they take out your check for them
Everything low pay hard work they try to push you to the limit, they don't care about you
Everyone loves working here! People are always nice and helpful. Multitasking and having astute attention to detail is important. Management is usually understanding and willing to work with you. You must be punctual to work here. Time clock is a drag, but free ice cream for employees on payday. Cafeteria could be a little better, but not bad overall. Responsibility is important here. People that call in aren't liked very well and usually get pressured to quit.
NICU Staff RN (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – June 17, 2015
I was "green" when I got hired at St. Davids in NICU. I am thankful they gave me the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of preemie care. SDMC will always be my "home". I will miss it dearly. Management is awesome. Especially because they were bedside nurses right along side of us years ago and I think that makes a great team. Co-workers are friendly, willing to help you anytime. I will miss my peers the most. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to sit and help a preemie learn to take a bottle! Babies are amazing! The doctors and NNP's are also very respectful and friendly and trust the nurses. I never had an issue with a doctor in the 10yrs I worked there.
Friendly staff, management willing to work with you
Registrar (Current Employee) – Austin TX St Davids Main – November 27, 2014
The managers are unorganized, and do not care for their employees. They were constantly understaffed, and the work load was tremendous and stressful. HR for parallon does nothing when there are problems with management. Hardly ever got lunch breaks. Even when I was pregnant.
co-workers were amazing.
no breaks. lunch breaks rare. horrible management. low compensation compared to other hospitals.
St. David's is consistently rated among the top 100 hospitals in the nation, and there is a reason for that. Attention to detail and quality of care is a must. That can add stress to the job, but because everyone works together to successfully administer that excellent care, the work is not overwhelming.
The only drawback to working here is that the hospital was often under-staffed, which made for a heavy workload at times. That situation was much better here than in other places, however.
PATIENT CARE TECHNICIAN II (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – December 17, 2013
I have never seen more favoritism, lying, unprofessionalism anywhere else like I saw at St. David's Medical center. I saw things that routinely put patients in danger, and when I reported it, I started getting written up for complete lies. DO NOT WORK THERE.
there are some really great people too
read the review...too many to mention. fire management.
