Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

SUPPLIES WAS MY BIGGEST ISSUE

PROS:

I ENJOYED BY COWORKERS AND THE PAY WAS GREAT. HOUSING WAS CLOSE TO FACILITY. THEY PROVIDE A FREE MEAL A DAY.

CONS:

LIMITED SUPPLIES AND UNORGANIZED

Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)

Ratchet Regional Hospital

PROS:

Let me think.....I don't see any. Will get pay, sore of, but be aware.

CONS:

I'm concerned about the nurses saying that this place is a beautiful facility and they love working here. First of all, Doctors will get you fire if you challenge them in any way. I heard complaints about co-workers stating:"since you guys came alone, we no longer get any overtime". Facility does not care about nurses whatsoever, think about factory work when it comes to the way the facility works. Scheduling is horrible. The facility is staffed with a lot of travelers (BIG RED FLAG).

Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)

RN ICU

PROS:

Staff is super friendly to travelers.

CONS:

Medical director of ICU fires most travelers for minute reasons. Doctors aren't the best to work with. Living conditions are horrible. Not a thing to do in the town. You'll find yourself working 8 out of 10 shifts.
