Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)
The hospital is understaffed.
Director more concerned pts' family waiting room satisfaction than pt safety
Parking. Due to new expansion and construction, parking for employees is scarce. Choice of parking free several blocks away and relying on shuttle service that can be delayed by weather, traffic, and events at nearby stadium and convention center, or parking using monthly contract at garage 2-3 blocks away (long wait list at hospital garage). Be prepared to double your patient load during holidays do to vacation and call-ins, especially in ICUs.
Cath Lab (Cardiac Catheterization)
Very busy, most things are rushed with very minimal time for actual patient care.
Get experience somewhere else go here to get paid
It is a good hospital. Nice team work. Let the scheduler know about any days off you want early.
Heart Failure ICU
Experienced travelers do well however 1st time travelers have a difficult time adapting to the culture
Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU)
Schedule is always subject to change. CVICU is expected to float their nurses first to other HVI units. No support from management.
