I worked for five years at St Joseph's and I thought it was the best hospital to work at. The first few weeks working on night shift, the
supervisor started harrasing me and my co-workers. The first week, she called me and told me nobody wants to work with me. She started writing me up for no reason, same thing with my co-nurses. She told me I could'nt work 7p-7a because I was claiming a lot on my health insurance (the most non-sense I have ever heard), and that I lack nursing skills and sent me for re-training, that I have a psych problem and sent me for counseling. There was no clinical nurse to give us instructions or update our knowledge. We were on our own which was the most dangerous thing to be in such situation. There was no teamwork on the floor, nurses were just backstabbing everbody just to look good in front of the manager. Doctors were in control and were like gods. I got the attention of one lady doctor because one family was complaining that the doctor had not spoken to them about the status of their mom. I approached the doctor only to tell me "you're fired, who told to you to come to me etc.. etc." Rude and very unprofessional doctor!!!. And the worst thing was being fired due to negligence incurred by one new vascular doctor. He released a post AAA patient out of the unit who was in DIC, accused the nurse of giving phenergan to the patient (scapegoat strategy). Remember, doctors, managers,supervisors, and nurses should perform services with the highest standards in ethics to meet the expectation of patients and their families. St Joseph's management is still sucks!!!!

During a recently short stay at St. Joseph's, a supervising nurse ridiculed and verbally abused me three different times to cover up a small incidence of neglect. This is superb hospital which deserves its reputation for fine physicians and care. A short "we apologize" would have taken care of the original situation--and did come later from another even higher supervisor before my discharge. I encourage all patients in all hospitals to stand up to bullies like this who slip through during the hiring process.

Last month, I made my first visit for treatment at St. Josephs and was very happy with my medical care. I found the staff to be professional and caring. Located on "Pill Hill" (nickname for the cluster of hospitals and doctors offices) off I-285, St. Josephs has a beautiful inner atrium full of shops and businesses. The buildings are very easy to navigate once you have found a place to park inside the massive parking garage. The nurses kept me entertained even while I was undergoing various procedures.
