Housekeeper and Management Relief (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – March 13, 2018
Everyone worked as a team here! I was so sad to leave when I had to relocate because of moving states. My boss Susan Wallace has been OUTSTANDING!!! she is a wonderful and creative boss who I have ever worked for.
My experience with the changes with names management throughout the years was as easy as could be under the circumstances. We were always updated and told what was happening(ie changes) and offered lots of opportunistic continuing education. I did not have many overall downfalls or complaints about my years at St. Marys. They were always accommodating to any personal needs I may have had.
Free meals. Discounts on all uniforms and gift store items.
Not enough communication at times between shifts at times.
Patient Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Waterbury, CT – November 6, 2017
ED Manager is unwilling to handle issues that occur with staff. Charge Nurses ignore workers who do not do their jobs forcing other workers to do twice the work. No discipline for those who do not work especially on the night shift. There is no supervision at night and a basic free for all. Manager does nothing to change the situation. Bullying goes on and Charge Nurses wont confront them. Group of workers who are related to one another team up and the remainder of workers have to do their jobs plus their own. Management has unrealistic list of expectations for one person to complete in one night shift while a revolving door of patients and traumas arrive. Ratio of patients to PCA is 8:1 and at times could be as much as 12:1. They think these people sleep all night just because it is night time - NOT TRUE! Poor Management, they only care about SOME of their employees.
Registration Specialist (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – October 31, 2017
Management was uncaring and not willing to listen to our complaints. Constant abuse from patients I was registering if they didn't think we were moving fast enough. Too many patients and not enough registrars for the area I was working in. We were always swamped with patients and they would get impatient and angry about the wait.
No breaks, uncaring management, abuse from patients
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Athens, GA – October 28, 2017
Very stressful environment. We are not equally paid in comparison to other hospitals in the area. The hospital's managerial staff, meaning the Directors of the departments do know the job duties of their staff. Within areas of the hospital there are high turnovers..
Member of Daughters of Charity Health Care System (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 26, 2017
A day to day challenge to keep hospital floors covered with staff as needed by hospital patient census. Close communication with all nursing supervisor to achieve this task. You learn how make deals to accomplish this task. The hardest part of the job was last minutes replacements or added staff. The enjoyable part was the actual accomplishment.
Nice place to work, friendly co-workers, job incentitives.

This job offers great benefits and advancement opportunities. It's a fast paced environment with little down time. The workload varies but is usually heavy but manageable with proper time usage. There is normally overtime and great incentives to pick up overtime. It is a great place if you want to help others and advance in the medical field.

Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Langhorne, PA – October 20, 2017
I did a lot of cool stuff there. One time, there was a snow was coming and the workers needed blankets and pillows. I had ended up on the monthly newsletter for participating in help gather the bed sheets.
Typical day at work was stressful. I learned how to clean and sanitize discharge rooms. Management was not the best during the week, but the weekend was great! Hardest part of the job, was the job within itself.
