great people and great docs. not overly busy. didn't do unneccisary procedures on patients. management was good but the director retired and no one replaced him while i was there. the most enjoyable part was the fellow employees. Made work fun and worth showing up.
I felt I was working often in unsafe conditions and that the expectations for the unit were unobtainable due to high patient ratios. I had administrative duties along with having anywhere from 7 - 12 patients at one time. Rules often changed daily and were not enforced adequately by management. Although this was a part of a larger corporation, educators and administrators from the corporate offices had to always take into account that our facility was the only one who had such high patient ratios when rolling out new workplace initiatives.
The overall management team had favorites as to who would be promoted. A "good ol' girls club" and lots of family member advancement.
No one was ever fired
Rarely had staffing to take breaks, uneven workloads

The company is quickly losing staff - nurse/patient ratios were unsafe but due to high patient volume and high turn-over the nurses frequently were working way too many hours and caring for an unsafe number of patients based on acuity. The hospital needs to cap patient ratios at safe levels and they do not.
Typical day is full of adventure. I have learned a lot about nursing and management. Workplace is very diverse. Great team work. Hardest part are caring for the very sick patents. The most enjoyable is caring for those sick patients and helping restore them back to life. Great place to work!
Each day was a new day of surgery needing to be done. The staff showed up, worked well and kept things going, Management was good and kept up with OR needs, and staff needs. Workplace culture was cooperative, and helpful in all things. There was no very hard aspects of this place, all things were planned and supported well.

no day is the same I have an interesting skill set now for discharge planning and utilization review management is friendly healthcare can be stressful...most of the staff work together well hardest part is not being able to arrange services for some patients most enjoyable part is a smooth transition to their next safe spot
The work environment is busy at times but that is any workplace. I enjoy working with the hospital. The atmosphere and moral was good. I enjoy my career status and I will continue to work in the medical field.
discount on meals, opportunities to change departments after 6months to a year, tuition reimbursement, and the benefits are great
