Parking Policy Changes:
There are some parking changes that are occurring for Agency personnel. There is no charge to park.
*Update – Effective Immediately, All agency associates assigned to the Gibbons Commons lot will be moved back to the Gibbons Commons property for parking. The temporary entrance will be located off Desoto Road. Two shuttles will run, departing every 5-6 minutes from 5:30-9:00 a.m. and 2:30-6:00 p.m. One shuttle will operate at all other times every 10 minutes (Updated parking shuttle times attachment below) Parking in signed spaces (such as Physician, Cport, Daughters of Charity)will result in booting or towing for first offense. Once a vehicle has been booted and the next violation is within 3 years it will result in a tow. Parking in a patient parking spot will also result in a boot.
Boot removal will require a payment of $50.00 and Protective services will NOT remove the boot without payment.
Failure to register a vehicle will result in a boot — this registration form is located in the sign-off forms under Documents and needs to be returned to CMS as soon as possible.
BADGING POLICY UPDATE:
ALL RN’s MUST obtain a badge from HR (Hours of operation 7:30a-4p) You can not be scheduled for any shifts until badge is received.
All agency staff will be required to badge in at a Kronos time clock.
Per diem agency, you will be required to do the following: obtain their assignment from the nursing supervisor, sign into the nursing office agency binder, obtain their badge, clock in at the time clock, and go directly to the assigned unit. At the end of the shift, staff will need to sign out in the nursing office agency binder and return the badge. *** This is every time they work — even if they are returning the next day. The nursing office hours of operation are 630am to 12MN Monday thru Friday and 630am to 1130pm Saturday and Sunday. If an RN feels that they can not complete their work by the end of their shift, they MUST obtain permission ahead of time — as St. Agnes is monitoring incidental overtime.
For contracted agency, your badge is obtained during onboarding and staff will keep their badge for the duration of the contract. Staff must sign into the nursing office agency binder and clock in/out at the time clock. Step by step instructions on how to clock in and allocate time are posted next to the time clock. If there are questions about how to clock in and allocate the time, please have them see someone in the nursing office. Must also use the CRP phones to clock in and out and send a signed CMS time-slip.
Please check here to see if there are any current contract positions available at St. Agnes Hospital.
