Not a place you want to be
Patient Care Associate (Former Employee), Paterson, NJJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: long breaks
Cons: short staffed, doesn't pay well
I worked here only because I needed a full time job. After a few months I highly regretted my decision to stay here but did because I am not one to just quit my job. I was here for 4 years and I can honestly say the coworkers and patients were the ones who kept me from walking out. Human Resources and higher ups do not care about their staff unless – more... you have a title behind your name. Too many lawsuits and serious issues were kept hush hush. When you speak out against any wrongdoing you get reprimanded or suspended and then fired. One of the worst places I have ever worked. Not every manager was bad there were a few good apples but not enough to want to actually work here. I would not recommend it due to the fact there are always new faces walking in and out the door too frequently. – less

Medical Laboratory Technologist II (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 27, 2013
I liked ST Joseph's Hospital very much. That is why I have stayed there for a long time until recently the reference Lab was sold to the Lab Corp. The work became very slow. There is no choice. they have to let people go. I don't blame any body. The economy is bad.

Pharmacy technician (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 9, 2013
A typical day at work includes doing omnicell loads/unloads, carousel filling, IV room compounding, answering phones, etc. My coworkers are great people. The hardest part of the job is the physical labor. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing I am giving the best patient care I can possibly give.

St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center is an excellent example of a nonprofit organization that allows individuals to develop their own abilities while caring for patients and their families. St. Joseph's Hospital supports the personal, professional, and academic growth of her employees.

(PCIS) Applications Analyst (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZApril 25, 2013
A typical day at work involved working with people in IT that were formerly nurses, technicians, and others from the medical staff. This was my first programming job, so I learned a lot about gathering requirements and transforming the customer's needs to the application we supported. I enjoyed working with a team that were former medical staff because – more... they had so much information to share. So not only did I learn a lot about the application, I also learned a lot about the various functions in a hospital and how they are adminstered. I did not find this job to be difficult, so the hardest part about the job was learning to work with deadlines. The most enjoyable part was the feeling of satisfaction when resolving a customer's issue. – less

Friendly and helpful staff
Staff Per diem (Former Employee), 703 Mainstreet, Paterson NJ 07503April 2, 2013
Pros: because, we work as a team, we always have time to take care of ourselves. having dinner, chat (quietly, since we work at night), plan our own activities/fun
Cons: when we get really busy, we don't get breaks but, this does not happen frequently.
A typical day at work is after you assessed and plan the care for your patients, we get to action by team work.

I learned how to manage my time because, it's always busy in any of the floors I am assigned.

Management is always supportive and always keeps us informed of JCHAO mandatories and always gives us the time to attend these classes.

Co-workers – more... are friendly and supportive. We always work as a team. Gets the work done fast, efficient and safe.

The hardest part of the job is not to be emotionally involved, especially if I am caring for a real sick kid or preemie.

The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing our kids progress and get well. Come back for a visit. – less

Clinically challenging at times; good coworkers
RN (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 14, 2013
Pros: the pros include the diversity of the pts themselves (cultural, ethical) and the ability to care for them the way they want to be cared for
Cons: long hours with no breaks, short-staffed, frequently no techs or huc's, and poor management
We have 4 RN's for each pod (8 beds each) of ICU's. We are assigned 2 pts each. I have learned how to prioritize at an early stage in my nursing career, which is very helpful in the ICU. My coworkers are fun to be around and are willing to help when necessary. We all have a great work ethic. Nursing/medicine has certainly changed since I graduated from – more... college. I feel like we are forever trying to keep up with all the new changes in charting, protocols, equipment, even the acuity of pts has changed. Pts are surviving devastating illnesses/injuries now, where before, they would not have stood a chance. I think this is attributed to the critical thinking we as ICU RN's, along with the phyicians, have developed in our years of experience. The best part of my job is seeing a pt return to the ICU as a visitor, and complimenting the staff on the wonderful job they did or the great experience they had during their very trying time in the ICU. – less

Staff RN, Department of Emergency (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZDecember 19, 2012
Pros: great staff rns and mds...
Cons: poor management
RNS and MDs are amazing here. THERE ARE THOSE 10 PERCENT THAT are not so amazing.

THE MANAGERS AND LEADERSHIP IS THAT WHAT IS SIMILAR TO HIGHSCHOOL. YOU WILL BE WORKED TO THE BONE AND UNDERAPPRECIATED BY MANAGERS. THEY WILL BE SURE TO MAKE YOUR WORK LIFE MISERABLE IF YOU DO NOT JOIN THE CLIQUE THEY ARE A PART OF.

Good experience
RECOVERY NURSE (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 29, 2012
Pros: always challenging and exciting.
Cons: just one lunch break. sometimes you need to have a snack for a 12-13 hour shift.
My experience in the recovery room is great. It is very stressful at times because it is not your typical recovery room. We are trained to care for trauma, critical, acute care, and neurological patients as well as caring for post cardiac catherization procedure. Our patient population is both adult and pediatric. My co-workers have a very strong background – more... of critical care and we work very hard to achieve the best care for our patients. My manager is wonderful and just treats you like a family. The hardest part of my job is that I will miss my pacu staff and manager and everyone. Overall, I do love my job but know I need to challenge myself with my new role. I am a loyal, hard worker,easily adaptable, and determined individual that always strive to do my best. – less
