Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Always short-staffed

PROS:

Coworkers areally probably the only good thing about working on the unit

CONS:

This is supposedly a Med Surg/Tele unit but its nothing but Med Surg with a tele monitor slapped on every pt. There is a lot of favoritism when it comes to scheduling. Turnover is high and management act like they don't know why the nurses and cna's keep leaving. One night you might have 5 nurses and then the next you have 4. If there are 8 or more nurses scheduled, they are never for this unit. Management refuses to schedule 6 nurses because that would put each nurse at 5 pts. They would rather schedule 4 to 5 nurses and let you drown with 6 to 7 pts. While they float the other nurses elsewhere. The Cna's are overworked too. You are lucky if you have a tech at night and if you do, it's just one tech to 30 pts. Every time the director opens up her mouth all she talks about is satisfaction scores and how the other units are at 70% but our unit is consistently under 50%. Well I wonder why?

Telemetry

Decent place to work.

PROS:

This is a small facility so its got a homey vibe to it. The staff gets close to each other and make strong bonds making it a pleasant place to work.

CONS:

Being a small facility the pay is on the lower end and knowing other nurses are making more than you makes it hard to stay and keep the pay cut.

Emergency Room (ER)

Relief charge nurse

PROS:

Co workers, OT opportunity, Doctors, schedule flexibility, relationship between floor staff and ER staff, good relationship with Fire rescue, great triage system, direct bedding only when staffing allows

CONS:

Low staffing, micromanaging by administration, service matrix

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Being very careful about working here

PROS:

Coworkers are nice and willing to help if they are not drowning in their own work. They do offer all the free CEU's you will ever need to keep your license up to date.

CONS:

More time than not everybody else is too slammed to help you. There's never any CNA'S because they have all quit. And the ones still there are always being floated to another unit or being pulled off the floor to sit with a patient. So it's normal for the nurses at night to do their own vital signs which causes you to fall behind. The charge nurses always give the heaviest and worst assignments to the per diem and agency nurses which is so unfair.
