Summary
Critical Care Nurse (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 26, 2014
I worked at St. Joseph Hospital for three years in the CTICU. The unit went through several transitions while I was there and during challenging transitions there were losses of experienced staff. Despite this the management strived to make the unit better and did so with as much input from the staff as possible.

CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee), Reading, PAFebruary 10, 2014
Management was awesome! I learned so many different things from drawing labs to saving lives! Co-workers were wonderful! The most enjoyable thing is helping and changing someones life. The hardest part is the fact that you can't save everyone.

Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Wichita, KSJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: good working invironment
Cons: short breaks, and long working hours
I worked in the outpatient client. Meeting people is something I love. I would draw blood from patient and would have to make them feel comfortable while doing so. I loved to make them smile when they were nervous about having their blood drawn. I would also have to input the results of the blood I would draw into the computer so that the doctors would – more... know the results of the blood that was tested. – less

Staff Nurse, Admission Nurse, Adult Psych (Current Employee), houston, txDecember 18, 2013
Pros: unity
Cons: safety
at st.joseph medical center psych intake department i assess patient coming in to get help with their psychological needs to assess if they meet criteria for admission. if the patient meets criteria and they are admitted with insurance i call the insurance company to do a initial precert giving all the clinical information that the patient provided. – more... i work at night so therefore i am the one in charge of the intake unit and oversee all activities that are involved. if any issues occur that i cannot handle i call the house supervisor to help or my director of nursing. i enjoy working with my co-workers and we work together to ensure that our work is done timely and that the patients are treated fairly and with respect. the hardest part of the job is making sure that when the patients are agitated that no one gets hurt, especially the patient. the most enjoyable part of the job is making sure the patients get the help they need. – less

productive but not enough help
E.R/Triage Phlebotomist II (Former Employee), Joliet, ILNovember 25, 2013
a workday in the er was very stressful. although we were told that we could ask for help at any time that we were overwhelmed that would rarely happen and there would be days that i or my fellow co worker would not get breaks due to staffing, call offs, or busy times

Not a friendly envirement
Unit Secretary- Admissions (Current Employee), Reading, PANovember 8, 2013
Pros: helping public
Cons: short lunches
If you are a hardworker and want to advance in this company. This will not happen. Management will use your skills to advance themself and make them look good, but put you down and give you more and more work untill you are the only one running the show. There was several horriable comments coming from managment that was repeated to other co-workers – more... and they continued to be harrisment. I went to HR about the issues and nothing was done not even a simple apology. I was denyed vaction time several time even told that management was not comfortable not having me working. I had extra rules and restrains on me because i was too efficent. I was also told by management "sometimes it is better to be stupid" when I was asked about my advancement. I even took work home and had no compensation for it.

The good part about this job is that you are helping the inner city people and doing the mission of SJMC even tho you are not reconized for it. – less

Great customer service (Former Employee), Burbank, CASeptember 20, 2013
We would start the day by working at the tray line for breakfast, it would go on for an hour and a half. After that we would go wash the dishes and work on late trays that would come in. We would send the late breakfast trays to the rooms. We would then get ready for the lunch tray line. I learned the different diets for different patients according – more... to their diet restrictions. I learned to work on all the stations on the tray line, from cold folds to hot foods to taking the food carts up to the floors. I was eager to learn as much as i could and they were eager to teach me. I am a team player so i got along well with my co workers. I was there to help them and they were there to help me. The hardest part of the job was learning all the positions in the kitchen, but i was up for the challenge. I learned all the tray line positions, helped in preparation also making salads and desserts. I would also work in the cafeteria whenever they were short. I learned how to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner at the grill, and would stock up the cafeteria in my free time. I also learned all the positions in the cafeteria. The most enjoyable part of my job was to know that i was helping at least in a small part the patients that were at the hospital. Seeing them be happy when they would get their food. – less

Health Information Management Representative (Former Employee), Tacoma, WAAugust 21, 2013
Pros: very diverse, happy atmosphere, professional
Cons: not much room for advancement without the proper education
Records management, customer service, learned more about what goes into completing a medical record. I enjoyed working with my co-workers, they are a good group, very honest. The hardest part of the job was working under pressure and getting mixed messages from management because they often left you in the dark, and there are many rumors that float – more... around, with very little clarification. – less

SJMC has great values but the management company does not allow for correct staffing and needs for staff to complete tasks safely.

I enjoy the type of work at SJMC in the Day Surgery Department. Staff shortage and management overseeing needs of staff for breaks and lunch relief not in place. Benefits are only average compared to other locations I have worked.

Productive, growth and fun place to work
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee), Towsn, MarylandAugust 2, 2013
Overall, St. Joseph Medical Center is a wonderful place to work. The people there are very special with a strong Christian faith. Management was good, easy to talk to and very open about keeping staff up to date with changes in the facility. The hardest part of my job was not being able to help a customer to receive the services that was needed do to – more... personal restraints or insurance. The most enjoyable was able to express myself and always being able to part of the solution, and finding resources to make things happen. To be able to share experiences, teach and/or educate someone. Being at St. Joseph for over 36 year total I have made many friends over the years, and being in position to help make a difference in someone life. Do to my position being eliminated I had to leave. Will miss everyone there. – less

Restructure created uncertainty
Sr Financial Analyst (Former Employee), Bellingham, WAMay 24, 2013
Pros: loved the people i worked with and the type of work i did
Cons: restructure in progress created uncertainty and the posibility of relocation.
Enjoyed the work I did and the people I worked with.

The restructure of PeaceHealth, created uncertain times, and some positions were relocated to Vancouver WA.

I am a single parent of two daughters in High School and moving to Vancouver WA was not an option for me.
