Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Horrible upper management

1
PROS:

Coworker are great, department communication is good Benefits are good I really can not think of anything else that is good about this place

CONS:

Understaffed on purpose , All calls including patient call bells all go straight to nurses phone, PCA are not required to empty Foley’s, they often do not even have enough pca to do the units citals and nurses must care for 6 patients, do all vitals and blood sugars

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

RN

5
PROS:

Coworkers are excellent, pay is competitive, self scheduling, 5-6:1 med with, 4:1 IMU, 1-2:1 ICU. I-MOBILE is good for access to patient info such as labs on the go.

CONS:

Very busy hospital, not much time for taking a break where you don't get calls and texts about your patients. I-mobile will drop calls.

Telemetry

we were short-a nationwide problem. I didn't like the favoritism on my floor.

3
PROS:

facility, pay, scheduling were the pros to this hospital, great manager, revolving door for the drug seekers c/o chest pain

CONS:

pt:nurse ratio

Step-down

Short staffed

3
PROS:

My unit had amazing co workers and director.

CONS:

Nurse ratio is high, doctors are not held accountable, high number of admits and discharges every day in the step down unit, not enough ancillary staff.

Emergency Room (ER)

License at risk

1
PROS:

Great ER physicians

CONS:

Your license is at risk with a 1:4/6 patient ratio. Including intubated, trauma, icu patients that are held in the ER. I've seen cardiac patients actively having MI's held on ER with no telemetry or monitoring

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

poor scheduling and patient nurse ratio high

1
PROS:

loved my co-workers after they got to know me

CONS:

director of that unit was horrible with how she spoke to you and assignments would be high with shortage of nurses and cna helpers making it a very long shift. Director would change your schedule and not tell you when you live 2hrs from there that does not work, she would also not honor what you agreed to work and put gaps in your schedule.

Telemetry

the WORST

1
PROS:

HIGHLY UNORGANIZED AND UNPROFESSIONAL. They changed my schedule the day after they set it up and didn't tell me. Then denied it and said they "would never do that"

CONS:

The entire experience

Telemetry

Nice past 3 months

4
PROS:

I had no problems here. Everyone was kind and very appreciative of my services as a traveler. Really enjoyed my time here building this unit.

CONS:

Hiring of too many new grads replacing all the contracts. Nurse to patient ratios 6:1 with charge nurse frequently taking patients.

PACU (Post-Anasthesia, Recovery Room, PAR)

Day surgery

3
PROS:

The hours are good. Good people to work with. Enjoy doing pre and post op education. The doctors work closely with the other staff.

CONS:

Poor management

Ambulatory Care

Staff RN

1
PROS:

Close to home and shorter commutes small enough to know everyone by their first name and title. Smaller hospital in the smaller community

CONS:

For PROFIT first. Short staffed and not safe. Lower pay supposedly due to closer to home.
