I worked night (full time) on the cardio-vascular floor (6700), including CV step-down and CVICU. On the floor we did vitals before all meds as well as extensive charting. I got along very well with all my co-workers and became an active team member. I definitely had the best managers of all other floors. However, in May I hurt my back (not job related) – more... and have been told not to be a floor nurse as we have to pull patients up all the time and the job is hard on one's back. Therefore, as per my doctors I need to obtain a job less physical. I loved my job and worked very hard. Feel free to contact any of my managers. – less

Volunteer (Former Employee), Utica, NY – May 27, 2014
The second time that I observed at this hospital, I observed in the Occupational Therapy department since that is the field in which I want to study after I gain some experience in a rehab setting. I was directly under a licensed OT and saw patients in the cardiac unit, emergency room, and in an inpatient setting as well.
St. Luke's is able to provide service comparable to any large hospital, yet has managed to maintain the personal feel of a community hospital. Staff is professional ,friendly and caring, and departments work together as a team. Budget concerns, and stress are the hardest part of our jobs, but the satisfaction of seeing our patients move toward wellness – more... makes it all worthwhile. – less

Outreach Worker (Former Employee), New York, NY – October 2, 2013
Pros: our weekly meetings.
Cons: they were no cons.
My experience was wonderful at St. Lukes Hospital. I met alot of interesting people and the co- workers were the best. The hardest part of my job was that I did not have enough time in the day to assist all of my clients.
The most enjoyable part of the day was that I was able to successfully give my clients the referrals they desperately needed.
