The pay is terrible because there is a repiratory school in town and the director knows she can fill the palce with cheap, entry level therapists.
Also, there was one raise in the 9 years I worked there.
The fellow RT's backstab, backbite, and complain about each other. Worst attitudes I have ever come across.
It's a teaching hospital but don't expect to learn anything...the residents do everything from intubation, arterial lines, and ventilator management. You cant even change FIO2 without having to call a resident. And as we all know, they are idiots.
