As long as you do not come down with cancer, because you will get fired..even after you have been there 12 years- beat that for employers!!! in a "healthcare" system..does that tell you anything?? They have 2 lawsuits against them at this time for the same thing- 2 different people.NOW would you really want to work at a place like that?? just wondering???

Flaget isn't the little hometown hospital it use to be. It was bought out by a big company CHI. Which is Catholic Health Initiative.The policies have changed including firing the nurse who had cancer. The pay is comparable to other small town hospitals but not the ones in Louisville. There is sometimes not enough help but that is the case in all the hospitals. There are no roaches and the floor nurses and help is, as a rule, very friendly and helpful. I had someone stay there. He was not neglected.

My husband has been in the Old St. Anthony, Baptist East, Jewish, Norton, Hardin Memorial, and Flaget with everything from heart surgery on down, and for periods lasting up to nine weeks. So we know hospitals. The treatment at Flaget was better than most. Of course, you want to go to Jewish if you are having heart surgery, or perhaps a hand transplant, but Flaget is not going to perform those surgeries anyway. They are very good at what they do. Just think how many people died when the closest hospital was in Louisville.

I understand what your saying but when an employer fires you because you come down with cancer- when you had been a top notch employee for 12 years-that makes you take a look at the big cockroaches running the place. so they basically are right- the place does have cockraoches-some not so visible as others. not laughing out loud

That was pathetic ,like I said it was the policy of the big CHI. They didn't want to pay her insurance while she was off. They said they would hire her back when she was ready to come back.She did file suit.I don't know if you know her personally but her sister also has cancer.

In order to smoke the employees have to leave the building and the grounds.

Your right about her sister also- I know her personally- and she was not the only one whom they fired because she had cancer. They said they would hire her back when she was ready to come back ...BUT at starting pay like a new employee- not what a 12 year ER head nurse was making when she was employeed by them before she came down with cancer. She has a suit against them , which they continue to drag out with delays- imagine that?

Ya I know you have to leave the grounds to smoke,but I also know employees take more smoke breaks than they should! And why can't you quit smoking , there's help for ya you know! Smokers cost health care alot of money ya know! So just remember your lungs the next time you puff!
