As an employee of the LA-based St. Vincent Medical Center: They say customer service is #1 but it really isn't. The doctors run that hospital and some of the doctors have racist views and have a serious problem when approached by a non-white person asking them to do something or follow the rules. beware if you are not "White." I know a few friends of mine who are no longer working there because of their stand against those who do not follow the mission and vision of the hospital.
Hospital is money first and patient safety/care last, did I say last, you better believe it. When i was a patient at this hospital, I didn't feel safe either. When i was a patient at White Memorial I felt respected and appropriated.
Administration needs tolerance and cultural training.
Would leave my name, but after seeing a few of my friends loose their jobs it would be a bad move.
good benefits; floors are clean, close to the freeways
staff is not supportive of each other, administration needs additional training, vision not clear, mission not clear.
