    I have been working at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the people and the team-work environment.

    Cons

    We tended to operate without weekly work plans. We would respond to urgent business that could be handled as routine.

    Advice to Management

    Outstanding personnel in administration. I would recognize ancillary staff efforts.

    I worked at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Usually 3% annual raise, so pay advances over time

    Cons

    Do not practice what they preach--kind to patients but not to each other as managers to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Practice humankindness with each other and not just patients

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros for woking with this hospital. I have been in situations were doctors have done procedures on patient's without an informed consent and it was all blamed on the bedside nurse. this is a death trap and I want out.

    Cons

    Recent situation: A woman was a full code and not doing well the nurse called the doctor many times and he refused to add orders to help save her life because he (the doctor) felt it would not be worth it. ( Yes she was confused but she had family that could have been her voice). SF is a death trap for workers and patient's what ever you do don't work here and don't come here as a patient.

    Advice to Management

    if the mission is humankindness that show some to your employes and patient's. To upper management walk the floors sometime and get to know the workers on the front line. The only thing Dignity Health is concerned with is MONEY....... So why not tell the public the truth ( They don't care about you unless you have insurance.

    Pros

    Staff includes some great people and for the most part it is a friendly environment.

    Cons

    A lot of dead wood that needs clearing to equalize employee skills and their responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a President and address employee concerns.

    I worked at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is inline with bay area wages for a medical records intermediate clerk II who performs release of information.

    Cons

    I found management in the health information management department to be excellent with revenue cycle management however, the management team does not have the post secondary education or personnel management seminar training necessary to know how to mediate personality problems that arise between employees and management does not engage enough with employees to build repore but instead stays behind locked office doors. I was stunned by the inappropriate comments that were made to me by management that had nothing to do with my professional performance but everything to do with my personal and private existence.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Dignity Health which is the parent owner of St Francis Memorial Hospital is to hire health information managers who have a minimum of a bachelor's degree and then to constantly and consistently train these managers in how to deal with the personnel aspects of managing such as team building techniques, mediation and the steps to offering constructive criticism to subordinates.

    should place more value on front line staff if you are really concerned about delivering quality care. also if there is really a concern about financial viability
