Toxic place to work most times. Staff nurses managers and CNAs. Always short. Pay was never up to par. You were expendable and easily replaced without fair warning or mediation. Lost many good workers.

The two best things about Saint Francis Hospital is the patient care and the team alongside you when you are working to take care of these patients. Floor/unit staff are a close knit family to each other. They are there for each other through good and bad. If you have to call a code because a patient has deteriorated you can count on all hands on deck. If you are celebrating something wonderful they share in your joy. If you've had too much and are exhausted they are there to help carry you. Your coworkers, your team, the people in the weeds with you are the best part of Saint Francis.
I love working at Saint Francis Hospital. I have a lot of great co-workers who have become really great friends. I love the busy setting of this hospital. It is never a dull day here. Really grateful to have an amazing supervisor who truly cares for her employees.
I haven't worked here in more than a decade. It is hard to recall any of these details. Nothing stands out to me as overly good or bad qualities. I don't think this should be a mandatory field to require on this website.
Unfortunately II do not have any other information to give.
The best clinical institution that I worked at and or directlyiparticipated in their teaching program. Supportive management, Collaborative work culture. Respect and attention to all learners, medical and nursing students through faculty. Competitive benefits. Shared responsibilities and accountability. Proactive outreach programs to community and affiliated Trinity System hospitals. Very good -excellent management.
Clinical commitment very high... is most good.unless focused on clinical or basic research, This was not my focus nor the focus of the clinical teaching faculty.. invo;vement in research substantive, but limited to short clinical based studies and post hoc reviews.
Collegial environment. Accountability for best clinical outcomes
Only in research compared top institutions such as Yale
As a student at the University of Hartford, I was thoroughly happy with my internship at St Francis. The employees that I worked with were fantastic and taught me several tips and skills to properly work with and speak with patients. I enjoyed the hands on work and developed a stronger skill to work with others.
HIM Analyst/Birth Registrar (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – August 16, 2018
My day starts with checking my phone messages and emails. I run a census report and a birth registry report. Then I interview patients . Type birth certificates. I sit at my desk and analyze EMR at the same time answering phones, scheduling appointments, translating for other areas ,Notarize documents for subpoenas . I learned how to manage my time and how to deal with stress. The hardest part is going home without a pat on the back for a job well done. The most enjoyable part is the smiles on patients faces. I get a satisfaction of knowing that their baby's birth certificate is processed correctly giving them peace of mind that their medical record is well protected.
Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – July 26, 2018
working at SFH is exciting, fast paced, and intense. A typical day consists of patient care, from the patient's arrival until their discharge or admission. We are responsible, as techs, for vital signs, hourly rounding, EKGs, phlebotomy/IV, blood draws, point of care testing ( urinalysis, pregnancy, strep, and rapid ABG/iStat. We help the nurses in all aspects of patient care. The emphasis is on teamwork, as the environment is very fluid and levels of acuity are constantly changing. Our management places our safety and the patients' safety at a high priority. The hardest part of my job is the constant motion and lack of down time. The most enjoyable part of my job is that almost every day I get to save a life. As we say, teamwork makes the dream work.
The medical and executive administration at St. Francis was a family, and sincere culture. Well managed, entire population of staff happy to work there. New administration came in from New Britian and brought there own staff, much disappointment in the culture. Previous medical director and sister was most professional and this hospital was one of the best hospitals to work for. Not any more unless culture of administration has changed.
Very busy I always learn something new every day Management is Great Hardest part is making sure you know everything because you never know to much Enjoyable part is patient complementing you on how good/hard you work
This hospital is located in the heart of Hartford North end and when danger or fast thinking needs to be done they are the hospital to go to. I been working there for 13 years and I learned so much in this hospital and it's never a dull moment. If you want experience in the medical field this is the hospital they will show you team work, hard work,and dedication.
