While I worked at the Hospital I got to learn alot about the lab . The time that I was there I got to go out into nursing homes in the community and draw blood it was awesome . My supervisor in the lab taught me so much about dealing with people in the hospital and in the community.

A typical day at work for me was to sign in, , I would get brief on what is expected from us, get my supplies as needed for cleaning the rooms. I enjoy the 30 minute break . I wish they had better opportunity for you to move up in that area of the job.
Great excercise .
I wanted to further my education and did not see any oppurtunities in this positon.
Great organization going through a challenging time
Regional Director of Accreditation (Current Employee) – Twin Falls, ID – July 20, 2017
The people are fantastic, the hospitals are truly dedicated to serving our communities as best as they can. The culture is extremely schizophrenic and alternates between directionless and excessively punitive. As the leadership in Boise tries to create consistency across the system regarding processes and quality of care, it is making the CLASSIC mistake of confusing integration with consolidation. The Boise-based leadership tends to view the rest of the system as inferior and requiring complete control even when evidence points to the contrary. Organizations, like people, go through phases where they are not prepared to make the most logical choices. Unfortunately, St. Luke's is in that phase currently.
Billing Clerk (Former Employee) – san francisco, ca – July 17, 2017
my job was to get authorizations from insurance companies for surgeries, mri's. etc etc . this proved to be challenging especially for workers compensation. the staff was always happy and easy to work with and for.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Newburgh, NY – July 11, 2017
I learned a lot about an ER setting during this time. Very strict but calm environment; although there are times of chaos where seriously injured people come in screaming and every nurse is on high alert and cant be calm anymore. Saw and helped many patients and saw many of the tools they use in abundance in the stock where I worked most the time.
There is no teamwork at St. Luke's a lot of favoritism and fend for yourself. The management acts better than you are and when you address a concern they brush it off their shoulders and act like nothing was ever said. Racism is an issue at St. Luke's Hospital.
Typical day includes gathering case materials for surgery and setting up. Assisting the doctor on the surgical field. Prepping for the next day schedule. Call is twice as hard being a surgical tech. Very little respect is given in this position.
CNA/Med Tech (Former Employee) – Sioux City, IA – July 10, 2017
I worked on the surgery and oncology floor as a tech. This could bve a difficult floor to work on if you get attached to people easily but the work environment is nice as far as coworkers and managers go but you stay very busy working in a hospital setting
St. Luke's was a wonderful place to work while I worked there and it was St. Lukes's. It transitioned to Mayo Clinic where I currently am employed. It is now Mayo Clinic and my experience with Mayo Clinic has been positive.
REGISTERED NURSE, GI & PACU (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – June 16, 2017
I went out to Boise St. Luke's on my first travel assignment, it was a wonderful experience. My co-workers were nice to work with, I made really good friends. I was made to feel welcomed and had an opportunity to cross train from PACU to Endoscopy care. I would as a full time employee if I lived there. There is a lot of outdoor activity.
Wonderful location. The EMR is Epic
Just changed from paper to EMR transition has challenging.
