PROS:

CONS:

The hospital is top-heavy throughout, if you have questions or want to get involved in something particular you have to go through many people and sometimes never have your answer. Not safe for ER staff d/t minimal security capabilities, low staffing, and minimal safeguards at entrance to er. SSRS with poor communication.
