Clerk (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – December 29, 2017
If you want to work where patient care and safety is compromised, the nurse to patient ratio is high, there are few techs to care for patients, your license or certification is in jeopardy and management could care less about you then look no further this is the place for you. Everyone needs to work but not at the cost of risking everything you have work hard for. Staff will throw you under the bus to cover their own shortcomings. I hope this facility is not representative of other St. David's or HCA.
Technician (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – December 15, 2017
Not! The motto is ”I Care,” it should be ”I Care Less.” Short staffing is definitely compromising patient safety. Nobody in charge seems to be concerned about that. The turnover for techs and nurses is high. One star is generous. Find a safe place to work!
RADIOLOGY SECRETARY/PATIENT TRANSPORT/FILE CLERK (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – November 14, 2017
Fantastic people to work with. Loved the fast paced environment. No micro management happening. Total trust that you can get the job done right. Liked how they utilized my eagerness to work by letting me do other things.
poor work environment from upper to lower management. Some great nurses to work with but also nurses that are cutthroat and back stabbing. Support and moral are low. staff overworked, unsupported, and stressed.
Management is the worse category about this facility. The work was good. Unfortunately, when a director over-heard encouraging illegal activity management did nothing about it. Patient care by the entire HCA facility is suspect. I wouldn't work there or use the facility for services.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – April 26, 2016
Worked here for over 2 years, and as a nurse it was the worse job environment Ive worked in. Management was very bad, staffing was very low compromising patient safety and led to many nurses quitting. Maybe its because its a for-profit hospital, but staffing was always low and compared to other hospitals in the area the pay was low too. To make things worse, nurses were so stressed there was alot of bullying going on. Im so glad I left.
Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) (Former Employee) – St David's Round Rock Medical Center – February 9, 2016
I am a traveler working for Parallon and St David's Round Rock .I work in Respiratory Therapy where a lot of action is.This hospital has a very friendly ,accommodating ,professional staff of workers who work as a team to provide the best care to patients. I don't have the benefits that HCA provides to their full time employees but I can see how their workers enjoy them. Working here has been a pleasure!
Good benefits, friendly working atmosphere, Great place to work.
Parallon (Central Texas) is not a good group to work for
NAMC (Former Employee) – Materials – October 26, 2015
The Parallon management Leadership were dishonest, shady, and uncaring. This does not reflect on St David's management who seemed to have their business in order. If you are thinking about going to work for Parallon, really research the company and management leading the organization. Ask for engagement survey results. This would be a good indicator for you. The turnover has been high and there is a reason for this. Not disgruntled, just honest! Could be good company with right management.
Surgical Scheduler (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – September 6, 2015
Challenging position scheduling surgery, handling a large volume of telephone calls. Co workers were friendly, talking to the staff at the doctor's office. The hardest part of the job was scheduling surgery and cath lab with equipment usage and staff. I enjoyed accommodating the doctors surgery times and dates.
If you like to followed around, dragged into the directors office on a weekly basis away from your needy patients this is the place for you. They manage their nurses and staff by intimidation and then give them a candy bar so they young green horns will keep their mouth shut.
The turn over here is tremendous and its the director and management team not to RNs you work with. Everyone is afraid of losing their job. And the team leaders can't be trusted either they are all scrabbling to save their jobs. You are followed daily and pulled aside over petty issues that the manager created in his head. And don't you dare be critical of management or you will be a target for paper and pen. Just say YES and run, because your best isn't good enough. Beware asking for reference from that team.No real support for the nurse with the challenges they face from patients.
Upper management seem to have their head in the clouds about what is going on in that floor.
its a job that it, lunch if you get one
rarely a break no one to relieve you, management, climbers to save their job
Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Medical/Surgical/Orthopedic unit – May 20, 2015
I am the "air traffic controller" for the unit, I keep the front office working efficiently while dealing with patients, family members, Doctors, Nurses, PCT's and heavy phones and patient call lights,. I have learned much about dealing with a patient's and their families concerns on a daily basis as well as how to stay compliant regarding HIPPA regulations. The hardest part of my job is when we have an equipment or computer breakdown since we rely so heavily on them. However when this happens I resort to a backup system which gets us through. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to connect with so many people throughout my day and knowing that I am a key player in such an important field as health care. My coworkers are highly qualified to do the work that they do and are wonderful people and caregivers as well. We are a great team. I enjoy the fact that I am an important support person to them which makes their jobs easier allowing them more time to spend with their patients. I feel fortunate to be part of such a wonderful team.
Excellent benefits, fine management, state of the art equipment, great people.
Low pay scale for the area and cost of living here.
Birth Certificate Specialist (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – August 24, 2012
A learning experience. Enjoyed co-workers we were like a family,helped each other when needed. Hardest part of the job was getting un-wed parents together. Most enjoyable part of the jobs was when baby's were born.
