Emergency Room (ER)

Four Stars

PROS:

The hospital is a level 1 trauma center. The staff works great together however you work your butt off. We are constantly understaffed to the point of putting the staff and patients in dangerous situations. Because we are the only level 1 trauma center, even when we go on divert the ambulances continue to roll in. We provide tertiary care, in an inner city. Our population is quite diverse. I work nights and we are like family. We help each other, we work as a team, we are family. It is a tough job but our team approach is what helps us survive.

CONS:

None
