Healthcare is poor , in general. Then there tends to be a decline in the overall work ethic

I agree, the patients have really started sucking lately.

When the Sisters ran it & had a say in the daily running, it was a good hospital. Now days, they hire just about anyone that breathes & make at least two sentences. The employees appear to care more about who they are doing, what they are going to be doing on their time off & call in because they are usually hungover.
The directors, asst directors, managers, etc only care about themselves & how the staff can make them look good, by doing the volume of work with little as possible staffing. A little bit of praise or even a "Thank You" would be nice once in a while, but that never happens. They would rather critize the staff for things they do, but they do it themselves (supposedly there is a no cell phone policy & the staff get written up for using their phones, but the higher ups walk through the depts showing pictures, FB posting, videos, etc of their kids & nothing is said. There were 3 techs complaining that their asst director brought his sick kid to work with him cause he couldn't take him to daycare & stayed in his office & did not want to be disturb cause it would wake the kid up. I know I would be fired if I brought my son in sick & left him in the dept while I worked & I have been talked to for calling in because he has been sick & my husband could not get off work to care for him.
The work environment is horrible & I've never seen it this bad in my 15 yrs here.

I've worked there for over 5 years and still love it. Every department is different but overall, St. Mary's has happy employees and really good patient care. Benefits are some of the best around here. Good pay. I can't complain.
