Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Medical Oncology, Lewiston ID – June 24, 2015
Worked on a busy medical oncology floor, with the best nurses possible. Hard working team. Hardest part of the job was end of life care. Best part of job was meeting some of the most wonderful rewarding patients and their family members.
Manager Outpatient Clinics (Former Employee) – Lewiston, ID – February 26, 2015
I would have stayed with SJRMC but due to family being on the other side of the state it made it difficult to balance my family and work. It was a very difficult decision for me to leave and move to Boise to be closer to my husband and children. The most enjoyable part of this job was the culture at SJRMC and the ability to be autonomous in making positive changes to the outpatient clinic practices.
REGISTRAR (Current Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – February 23, 2015
Very busy environment that changes every day. There are issues between the co-workers that bleed over to other employees. There is favoritism between management and the employees. Some employees get away with things that they should not.

Registered Nurse - 12 hr weekend (Former Employee) – medical renal unit – October 10, 2014
SJRMC is a great place to work with new patient care technology in place. The silent call lights and carpeted hall ways help with noise prevention. Nursing management for the night shift is very helpful with staffing or other questions. The nurses station flows well with the accessablilty of the nourishment area, pyxis station, and charting areas. Having a chaplain on staff 24 hours each day helps during code situations. Having the cafeteria open during the middle of the night is a bonus for getting away from the unit for a real break.
Environmental Associate, Environmental Services (Current Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – June 15, 2014
My day begins at 11:00 pm and ends at 7:30 am. I work very hard to keep the hospital clean. That includes everywhere from surgery to patients rooms. Traveling through-out the building I have met so many wonderful people. I believe that's the best part of my job. I have been with Saint Joseph Medical Center for many years and I am looking for a change. I would like to work during daylight hours. I am also looking forward to not working on Christmas or Thanksgiving. They change supervisors often, Some are good but the one I have now is not. I have learned three important things.1 To get along with many personalities. 2 Make good use of time. 3 Stay organized.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Plymouth, IN – August 2, 2013
My day at work veries some days from crazy busy to crazy slow. Working at the hospital I have learned the importance of sterilization and cross contamination. My manager is understanding when it comes to my needs and my hours are flexable. My co-workers work hard to help each other out to make our day a little easier. The hardest part of my job, I would say, is the constant moving and bending over. Some days I come home very tired. The most enjoyable part of my job would be the hours. I come in early in morning and leave early enough in the day.
Student radiographer (Former Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – January 13, 2013

Circulating Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Mishawaka IN 46545 – October 31, 2012
a typical day at work was usually a busy day, filled with multiple different surgeries and good energy. i learned that teamwork in surgery is not only important but also indispensable. management was consistent. they would try to be on top of our needs such as granting days off, filling gaps in a timely manner, placing us where we were most needed. we practice lots teamwork. my coworkers were great to work with. hardest part of the job was when surgeries did not bring the results expected and patient/family had to deal with bad news. the most enjoyable part of the job was definitely our patient's satisfaction.
free lunches when we would recognize our peers perfomace
