I don't know about their hiring process but are you aware that the Chicago Heights hospital is closing? I did all my nursing school clinicals at the Chicago Heights location & would never have worked there. The whole system promotes the "doctor is God" mentality. If you are sitting & a doctor comes in, they expect you to give them your chair.

I, unfortunately, was a patient there after a minor surgery & they managed to overdose me with pain meds to the point where I had to be sent to ICU.

There are other, more reputable hospitals in the south suburbs. I would steer clear of St. James (both locations).

No, I didn't know. Thank you for the heads up
