Operating Room (OR)

Excellent staff & surgeons

PROS:

Just about everything. Great nurses & ancillary staff, quiet, safe town, comfortable surroundings. Good hospital educators. Really nice facility.

CONS:

Distance from my home. Since I need at least 20 words I wull just type away until I reach the minimum.

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

RN

PROS:

Great pay, over time being offered left and right because they are losing staff

CONS:

Overworked, understaffed nights nurses sometimes can have up to 10 patients a piece on med surg floors. Day shift can have 6-7. Management overworked as well- they don't have staffs backs because they are too busy trying to watch their own. They are expecting more when there is no staff nurses and care partners to go around. Limited RNs in float pool. Who wants the extra enhanced pay when you know as soon as you get there you are going to be swamped and already behind. You don't even have time to provide the basic care to patients.

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Good place to work

PROS:

Excellent staff here. New Head of Nursing is making big changes to support staff nurses. The cost of living is low and the area is quite pretty. Located just off Rt. 17 on the border of NY and PA, so easy to get to other places.

CONS:

Small town, rural area. One has to travel to get to larger towns and cities. Sometimes the winter weather is bad so important to have either an all-wheel drive car or good snow tires on in the winter.

Emergency Room (ER)

ED, ICU

PROS:

Excellent pay and great co-workers. The facility is close between Elmira and Binghamton with outdoor activities located at your door step.

CONS:

Leadership

Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)

RN ICU

PROS:

For me, pros to this facility include: patient population diversity (trauma, surgery,neurological, plastics, cardiac and medical). Level 4 trauma center and teaching hospital. Newly built ICU unit. Pay rates, closeness of coworkers, patient To RN ratio 2:1 and sufficient ancillary staff.

CONS:

For me, the biggest con to working at this intensive care unit is the scheduling.

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Caring organization

PROS:

High quality, caring people work there. It is a teaching hospital so nurses work closely with hospitalists and residents. The hospital has a lot of speciality units available and it is a level III trauma center so there is a lot of opportunity to learn new skills there.

CONS:

Sometimes there are staff shortages which make for high patient ratios. The surrounding area is rural so it may not appeal to those who like urban environments. It can be a long commute to more populated areas. Also being rural there aren't all of the amenities that some people are used to having close by.

Other

Two Stars

PROS:

None

CONS:

They will float you to any unit without any orientation to that unit The patient ratio at times can be 6-7 on any unit.Mangement is not truthful and will say anything to get you to agree to work their shifts

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Three Stars

PROS:

It is extremely busy and fast paced. I currently work on a Hospitalist- med-surgical unit. We get the sickest of the sick, so it can get overwhelming very quickly. The doctor's are wonderful to work with, the computer system is top notch, the pharmacy is excellent! The pay is very, very good the highest in my area. The patient to nurse ratio is marginal at best.

CONS:

None

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Three Stars

PROS:

Make sure you know who has your back

CONS:

None

Intensive Care (Critical Care, CCU, ICU)

Four Stars

PROS:

Great team

CONS:

None
