Staffing is sometimes fair, the facility is recently remodeled, pay is ok, scheduling has never been an issue with night shift, ratio is not too bad at night
Some complaints are worse for day shift, ratio tend to be a little unbalanced, staffing gets a little hectic on days, pay for day shift isn't as beneficial as nights, schedule issue tend to be a little less lax on day shift
Great work environment and patient environment. Loved the area. Doctors are supportive as is the management. Medical equipment up to date. Patients are informed.

I loved working for a Magnet Hospital
Great coworkers. Adequate staffing ratios. Pay comparable to other alike facilities. Updated facilities. Lovely in hospital spa. Friendly staff members. Experienced nurses and doctors.
Needed better support from higher managers. Better parking. Needed New monitors and necessary equipment for patient care.
Worked surgical oncology for 27 years. Now do outrrach for quality assurance.
Enjoy what I do. Would like to travel becaise my children are in College so this would be a good time for me to experience something new
A lot of critical thinking for nurses, which is good however there isn't a lot of support from charge nurses on the floor. The staff nurses are great, however there isn't much knowledge of the hospital's policies or evidence based practice. It is very, "this is how we have always done it"
The ratios are usually 4:1, occasionally 5:1. Management is helpful and supportive. Self scheduling is great and flexible.
Great place to work at a magnet facility.
