Emergency Department RN (Current Employee) – Davenport, FL – January 10, 2013
I work in the emergency department and enjoy the fast pace environment. However, due to the lack of adequate nursing and nursing ancillary staff in this facility; many of the admitted patients end up having to stay in the emergency department's for long periods of time, even days. It is very challenging to effectively deliver the appropriate level of care to admitted patients in an ER setting. My direct management does their best to maintain balance between the expectations of the hospital's upper management and the nursing staff. Nevertheless, this institution does not exercise share governance, especially among the nursing staff. Working with a fantastic group of people in the ER, and delivering compassionate nursing care makes my job very rewarding.
inability to take lunch breaks happens too frequently. non competitive salary and/or benefit.
