    I have been working at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits including a retirement plan.

    Cons

    No emphasis on development of ancillary staff. No reward for achieving better credentials with advanced degrees or board certifications. Staff are type-cast making it hard to rotate into other positions in the department. Having adequate coverage is tough when staff call in sick.

    Advice to Management

    Look into high turnover rate within department for both techs and pharmacists.

    Pros

    Dignity Health has expanded its services to the local community here in Arizona over the past several years.

    Micromanagement of departments, there needs to be clinical pathways to reinforce proper care to the patient(s) from outpatient authorizations to post discharge care

    Pros

    Decent paying job. The job itself is not bad, it's the Co workers and management that makes it so hard to tolerate.

    Cons

    Horrible gossiping, back stabbing people. No matter how nice they seem, it's only because they want in your business and want you to trust them so they can talk crap about you behind your back.
    Management is no help with work place violence, neither is HR.
    The same rules do not apply to everyone. The ones in the "clique " get their way about everything and no matter how much you try to stay to yourself you'll be dragged in the office with ridiculous, hideous accusations against you.
    Benfits are not very good at all. PTO time is the lowest in the valley.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and apply the same rules to everyone!

    I worked at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent minds, educational opportunities, excellent learning environment, very nice facility, modern, up to date equipment, flexible schedule and excellent work life balance. Wonderful/talented medical staff. Good teamwork, good relationships and respect between nurses, physicians and ancillary staff. Good benefits and retirement. Unit manger was very understanding with personal life and flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    Underpaid. difficult to get promotions/ progress. Will work u very short staffed which can be unsafe. Lots if micromanagement on telling u what you need to do but no help to do it. Upper management seems to be getting worse with the above issues and more disconnected from what is realistic at for one person to do with very little help at the bedside. I feel like this has changed when we went from CHW to dignity health. Becoming too costumer service and family oriented rather than safety and patient oriented, will sacrifice staff happiness of staff for budget or to meet ridiculous demands by pt's family's.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your staff more and don't work them do short, back them up with exceptional families instead of catering and encouraging this behavior. This causes many people to become burnt out. This place a started with something special, the spirt of charity and compassion and doing the right started by the catholic nuns, don't become so focused on money and chasing surveys.

    I have been working at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They will hire Anyone! Good place for a new grad with no experience.

    Cons

    Some of the "older" experienced RN's look down on the new RN's. Staff has a negative attitude, condescending comments and attitude are the normal. This is called "lateral violence". (If you are a victim of lateral violence you should consider taking legal action.) Senior management just tolerates it. The bad seeds are never disciplined, so it just continues. Most of the decent well adjusted people move on after they have a few years experience. The pay is incredibly low compared to other hospitals in this area.

    Always understaffed to the level of being unsafe for the patient and your nursing license!! Never enough Nursing Assistants. 32 bed unit operates with one Nursing Assistant when it should have 2 - 3. This means NA will only take 2 of your 4 pts. So RN has to do total care on Two patients ( all vitals, all bathroom, clean all poops, empty trash and linens. Zero help with this patient, no matter the acuity). Then when the other patients need help NA is not available because he/she is too busy with other pts, overloaded.

    Advice to Management

    Take appropriate corrective action with your experienced staff. Stop playing favorites. Lateral violence should be zero tolerance!
    Attention Unit Directors : Staff your units appropriately for safe patient care. Stop focusing on coming in under budget so YOU can get a BONUS. Do whats right for you patients and your hard working staff for a change.
    Cut out all the BS corporate talk where you go through the motions of acting like you hear us and Actually Listen, Then take action based on that feedback.
