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

Stroke

Three Stars

PROS:

The hospital is overall nice place to work, but it's all about the bottom line there. Management constantly insist more paitent satisfaction but spend less time with them. Increase that hcap but zero tolerance for ot.

CONS:

None

Cardiovascular OR (CVOR)

Three Stars

PROS:

It would be a great place to work if nurse to patient ratio were better and depending on acuity of patient. They are too concerned with admissions/discharges than patient care yet they get mad when ratings are low.

None
