Pediatric

Nothing positive

PROS:

None

CONS:

I wish there was something positive to say about this hospital. The nurses care so much about their patients but the for-profit owners don't care about the staff or patients. It's all about the money. Short staffed, overworked and under paid.

Neonatal ICU (NICU)

One Star

PROS:

None

CONS:

This hospital is really at a changing point in it's future. There have been layoffs of everyone from EVS, RN all the way to the COO of the hospital. There is minimal support from the management staff and there is a extremely low morale amongst the nurses.
