It was a learning experience

I learned a lot working with patients and drawing blood on new born babies and older adults. I learned a lot. My experience was awesome I would take turns with co workers to attend to trauma emergencies. Our hospital had helicopter so we would get trauma cases all the time that was a great experience. I had to draw the patients blood while all the doctors are working on the trauma patient at the same time there was no room for errors it was very challenging.

Pros

Amazing lunch from the hospital

Cons

None at all

Mental and physical torture 21st century inquisition

If one is a narcissist this is the place you wish to go. The turnover rate is so high in every part of the building the doors have become a turn style for employees. Healthcare is to help patients not to pad the pockets of the CEOs. The atmosphere when entering is oppressing. Promotions are given to those that don't have experience and those that do have experience are given negativity.

Pros

no pros

Cons

Management isn't there for the team, Its equivalent to fast food service in health care, Nurse look down upon others that don't have the education, Patient and employee safety is not thought about, issues are pushed under the carpet that is a health risk

Help people considering your employer. Share your experience.

When I worked there over 20years ago, it was a good place to work.

I enjoyed my time working a St Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne IN. I enjoyed my coworkers and we would have fun at work. I also learned a lot there to help me further my career.

Nice place to work

People are very nice, most doctors treat nurses with respect. Supportive management and union. Work together well. Leasders are often on the unt and available to staff between meetings. paid time off is good, they pay for seminar days every year and actually let you take them.

The fact that patients that underwent surgery came out successfully.

My day started very early, looking at the surgery board and waiting for the head surgical nurse to assign which surgeon i will be working with. I enjoyed assisting Oncologists, ENT surgeons and my favorite was OB/GYN-(Labor and Delivery)

Pros

Successful surgeries

Cons

Unhappy surgeons and co-workers

Productive

Large patient workload. There are high expectations. Management do not represent you and a manager should. You must be able to be independent and work under pressure.

best to avoid- not what it used to be

Mid- level management is unprofessional. dishonest, biased, retaliatory, sellf-serving. lack of ppe is always an issue. new ownership is not helping. best to stay far away!!!

Cons

management plays favorites, retaliation a norm

Rn

Nice place to work if you don’t mind just being a floor nurse. Since you can’t really grow within the ministry, also, very little support staff is available to help nurse with their patient loads. Lots of missed lunches and over worked most of the days.

Pros

Lovely coworkers.

Cons

Poor pay. Favoritism. And very little support to the nurses

Supportive, Friendly staff from the CEO to the volunteers

The PeaceHealth system and their hospital St. Josephs in Bellingham is an amazing supportive system. They provide what the staff need to be successful in patient care. The leadership includes everyone in their decisions. Everyone was positive, helpful and very friendly. It gave me hope that there really are great hospitals and staff out there that truly care about their staff and the patients. What I really liked about this system is that everyone is called a "caregiver". It is not just about nurses or housekeepers, everyone is a caregiver.

Pros

Everyone is a part of the team

Cons

none
