Don't waist your time applying there.

This hospital was okay.
I assist (Former Employee) –  Patchogue, NYSeptember 25, 2013
This was a team nursing setting, I would have 12 to 15 pt's a day. Short staffed often. The electronic medical record was a great experience to have. This system was called the MAK system and I was considered a supper user and trained other staff in the ED to use the network.
Pros
many nurses were compassionate.
Cons
knowing your scope of practice and strictly adhearing to it was loosely practiced.

Blind leading the blind.....
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Patchogue, NYJuly 19, 2013
Not a good place for professional or clinical growth.
RN Staff ignore callbells and patients. No Teamwork.
Many issues with narcotics on the units. Since they
don't drug test staff on hire, you don't know who is using
who or who is using what! Scary place for a new RN to
practice. No educator support on the night shift. You are
basically on your own. They get rid of the good supervisors
that actually get something done, and leave the floors uncovered with incompetent wannabees.Lot of staff gossip & chaos. Nothing gets done! Not a healthy work environment for nurses & not a safe environment for patients! !
Pros
convenient parking
Cons
lack of senior management support....workplace gossip thrives here!!! staff drug use.

I don't recommend this place at all
Cashier for the GrabnGo Cafe (Former Employee) –  Patchogue, NYJune 15, 2013
The supervisors are always screaming at you. The coworkers work like the supervisors marionettes and do their dirty bidding for them.
Management sucks. No one has your back and if they tell you that they do, they are full of cr*p. Talk about intensity. If you go to the bathroom crooked you get written up. Oh coworkers. You don't have any none worth calling coworkers. Everyone is out for themselves.
The hardest part of the job was not telling the BBB sooner on how this place ever survives. THe most enjoyable day there was none.
Pros
there are none
Cons
everything that a hospital should be they are not
