Pros: small hospital where everyone knows everyone in a small community
Cons: not haveing specialities here, haveing to transfer so many clients, at times we will have 5-6 nurses in the whole hospital - if we have 2 codes at once, or deliver a baby and have a major head trauma at the same time it can get hairy.
I truly love working in the department that I work in now, we are like family. The recent changes in health care have made our benefits not as good as they used to be. Some days are terribly busy, some are slow. We work in rotations, currently I work Friday, Saturday and Sunday (12.5 hrs) off Monday, Tuesday then work Wednesday, Thursday and off Friday, – more... Saturday and Sunday, this makes me working 48 hours one week and 36 the next.
I like not knowing what's comeing in the door of Emergency department, keeps me young. I love watching a person come in sick and being better when they leave. – less
