Great cooks and food
Wound care nurse (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKApril 13, 2016
Management was great, they were fair, honest, professional, courteous, and caring. A typical day at work was getting report and greeting coworkers, doing a quick visual assessment, vital signs and finger sticks at this time. make sure patient doesn't have any needs. serve breakfast, and pass daily morning meds. wound care was done at this time, cleaning, packing, wet to dry or whatever the order may say needs to be done. make sure patient is medicated before wound care is to begin. After treatments are completed, some patients go to therapy. during this time sheets are changed and rooms are cleaned. rounds are done every hour. try to meet patients needs and goals. I learned a lot at this hospital about wounds and the topical medications that are used. I learned how to apply a wound vac, how to measure, clean, pack, and wrap wounds, the most enjoyable part of this job was to see patients come in with wounds that you could insert a whole fist into, and leaving with the wound completely closed with a scar about the size of a penny. this place was amazing at healing wounds. I used to call it the magical hospital, because the amazing staff that worked together, including the kitchen staff, worked magic and healed the patients. The hardest part of this job was the long work hours. The most enjoyable part of this job was the enjoyment I felt when a patient was going home completely healed.
Pros
Great food and management.
Cons
Eating lunch while standing, Or not getting a lunch at all some days.

Nursing
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Painesville, OHApril 11, 2016
This place has way to many unsafe practices, how can one give GREAT care with the patient ratio and falty equipment or lack of supplies. If one is a money hungry person the is always the opportunity for OT and extra hours, but personally the longevity of my license is way more important.
