Office Manager (Current Employee) – Clerical – November 12, 2016
Everything at the hospital is decided by upper mgmt and they are clueless. Supervisors can't function in the hospital program because they aren't trained. They get others to do their work and can't Find a single report in the system. On top of doing your own job you do theirs and they still believe you have time for more. Only their "pets" are allowed OT and you're expected to cover for the pets if they call in. Supervisors put one against the other. They short you on raises and try to make you think your incentive is part of that. The incentive is not guaranteed. Most coworkers are great. We all have the same feelings and knew the ochsner partnership would cause problems Good luck if you get hired
Assist the nursing staff (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – November 4, 2016
Overall STPH is a pretty nice place to work. The benefits and pay could be better. The night shift is always short staffed, but the staff always works with it. The staff is pretty good about always helping each other out and working as a team.
ED Coder (prn) (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – October 12, 2016
My work day was to punch in, sit quietly and read/code medical records. Management was great and she kept the work environment lively by having frequent pot lucks and meetings that were informative and fun.
Clerical (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – May 18, 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Stph for several years until a change in our department management occurred. Our team worked very well together and even did things outside the office after hours for fun. When the new administrator started, this person basically started "cleaning house"...getting rid of awesome long time employees to hire friends/former co-workers that do mediocre work. Morale is at an all time low...employees feel as if they're walking on eggshells with all the closed door secret meetings. Supervisors treat employees in a condescending way. And don't even bother complaining to HR or the higher-ups because it's a shady deal all around & nothing ever gets done.
Benefits are good
Management is terrible, poor employee morale, poor pay scale
Cashier (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – May 5, 2016
Typical day a work was very busy which was great. I learned the importance of the patience. I put myself in there place of how I wanted to be treated. Management didn't listen nor did there care about the employees. Co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was to have everything posted for that day. When i was released they hired 2 people for the position. But they wouldn't do it for me. I loved my job.
RN Staff (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – April 1, 2016
We work short ALL THE TIME. It's not even safe much of the time. We are constantly given more responsibilities-- taking care of the critically ill of the hospital, responding to codes, rapid responses, STEMI alerts, stroke alerts, and now traumas. We have been given no compensation for any of this. Lakeview, the Heart, and even North Oaks all pay better. There is no value placed on employees or even the safety of the patients for that matter. It is all about the money!! They will expect you to take an unsafe assignment and never do anything to get help in to staff. They refuse to use agency or pay extra to their own nurses to staff the place. If management doesn't like you they will make your life miserable and retaliate against you if you speak up by changing your schedule or giving you bad assignments. There is no communication from the manager. You never see administration. So many unethical things at this hospital. It's really sad because the nurses truly care about the patients and we want it to be better.
Good teamwork amongst nurses and compassionate nurses
Sterile processing technician, posting clerk (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – March 27, 2016
Management needed to know the daily operations and functions of our dept. Management could not just come in and take over without being properly trained. Workload was too much for the amount of employees employed. Worked at this employment for 22 years.
Internal Consultant Revenue Integrity (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – September 15, 2015
Start day at 8:30 end 4:30. In my time their I was able to learn more billing codes by helping in other departments set up billing codes. Management was very professional and helpful. Hardest part- I never had enought time in the day to complete what I set my goal for the day.
Surgery (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – June 12, 2015
If you like Negativity and drama this is your place! Poor management skills with absolutely no compassion at all. If you aren't part of the click then they will find a way to get rid of you. What amazes me is that trouble makers stay and the good workers go. The money seems to be more important than the patient.
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – March 27, 2015
Great weather conditions because you are inside. It's a calm work place. I learn how to communicate with people better. My co-workers are all really friendly and talkative. The hardest part of my job is the pace you choose. You can over pace or under pace. The most enjoyable part of my job is beig apart of something great.
Clean, organized, friendly work environment, saving lives

Internship (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – March 17, 2015
I enjoyed working at the hospital because it was very productive and fast paced. It was easy to see the impact of the work I did and how the patients appreciated the work I completed. My co-workers helped me to grow in learning medical social work and were very intelligent and informative. The hardest part of the job was seeing the patients in pain and suffering and the family upset with the situation. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the work I did impact the patients positively. I learned self-care and interpersonal skills while finding placements and talking with the patients.
Er (Former Employee) – Covington, la – September 21, 2014
To much favoritism. If manager didn't like you then she would try to make you quit which happened on several occasions. Gives full time employees overtime while prn is worked not at all. It was a very hostile environment to work in.
having a lunch break
Sometimes manager would get mad if you went on lunch break and you were caught up on everything
