Home Health (Hospice)

Five Stars

PROS:

love the job you do i have not worked in a hospital setting for more than 9yrs i currently work in home health, when i did work in the hospital setting I gained all my experience there, I loved it but the shifts became challenging for me due to my children being small.

CONS:

None

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Four Stars

PROS:

We have a strong sense of unity and team work. It's not an easy unit to work on but the support from the staff is excellent and makes the job easier.

CONS:

None

Orthopedics

Two Stars

PROS:

None

CONS:

The work is challenging but you will learn a lot.

Labor & Delivery (L&D)

Three Stars

PROS:

Good hospital. Understaffed. Inexperienced charge nurses

CONS:

None

Neonatal ICU (NICU)

Three Stars

PROS:

Be aware that you will have to be placed on-call twice a month whether you want to or not and whether they tell you from the beginning or not. Also, the unit tends to make time-consuming, mostly unnecessary changes at the last minute, right when you're getting ready to leave.

CONS:

None

Orthopedics

Four Stars

PROS:

Poor staffing and pay

CONS:

None

Long-Term Care (LTC)

Two Stars

PROS:

None

CONS:

Responsibility

Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU)

Four Stars

PROS:

Na

CONS:

None

Rehabilitation

Three Stars

PROS:

It seems like the rules and regulations are disposable and whatever the unit thinks is convenient to follow at the particular moment that is what goes. Patient to nurse ratio varies from 4-8 depending on the budget of the night ( it seems that way.) Management are not even nurses and expect miracles from us.

CONS:

None

Rehabilitation

Four Stars

PROS:

Learn from others, assessment skills on point.

CONS:

None
