Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Three Stars

PROS:

The hospital is nice. Keeping it up to date. People are friendly. However, I feel the hospital looks after finances more than patient care or the well being of staff members. They do this by making charge nurses take teams which doesn't allow them to help us when needed.

CONS:

None

Telemetry

It is a large hospital and a great place to learn. The unit I have worked on has a large number of experienced nurses & it makes for a great unit.
