Dialysis (Nephrology)

Nice hospital low pay.

PROS:

The staff are great very helpful. Patient nurse ratio is usually 4:1 on most units. Charting system pretty simple they use center. Block scheduling used at this facility so every month you get a 6 day stretch of off days which is a perfect time to take a mini vacay.

CONS:

It's Alabama so pay is pretty low my pay as a traveler with stipends was still only about 1300 weekly after tax and this is pretty uniform throughout the south east area

Ineterventional Radiology, Hemo, Pre and Post op

PROS:

Nurse Patient Ratio Disorganized Too many inexperienced nurses Pay for parking Nurses do not work as a team Poor orientation to process flow.
