St. Vincent's

  1. 0 Hello all. I just recently got a job in the ER at St. Vincent's in Indianapolis. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the hospital? From what I know (and from what they are offering me) it sounds like it is going to be a GREAT opportunity.

    I've worked in a small ER for the past 4 years as an EMT/ ER Tech and am a bit nervous about moving up to a much bigger ER. I would appreciate any information or tips anyone has.

    I have worked at St. Vincent's for almost 5 years and love it. It is a great place to work...the people are nice, there is a true family feeling there, and lots of opportunities if you want to go far. Good luck to you!

    Hello! I've worked at St. Vincent Indianapolis since I graduated in May 2006. I also have several other friends that work there. We all love it! Like the previous poster said, everyone is nice. The hospital has been very good to me.

    I don't know anything specifically about the ER unfortunately.

    I could not stand St. Vincent's - I felt overworked constantly!!! I worked on 2 units there and came near to having a nervous breakdown and/or killing myself because of all the negative feedback that I got. I live less than a mile from there and would never consider going back after all the bad things that happened to me there!

    Just felt overworked constantly! On CVPV, had 8-10 patients a day sometimes with only an LPN, this went on for a year and then I transfered to ICU, same issues, no patients were ever a 1:1 and it was just too busy without appreciation from management.

    I work in CVTR. I pick up time in ICU and it's ok. Not my favorite place. I HATE floating to CVPV. They are never adequately staffed. 3 South is rough too but at least they staff a little better. I think it just depends on what floor you're on.

    PICU and PEDS ER were really good floors when I was there 4 years ago
