Most shifts short staffed for the acuity of the patients.
Charge Nurse, CCU (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – September 19, 2017
Long shifts, usually short staffed. You felt like an employee number instead of a hardworking health professional working to take care of some of the sickest patients on the planet. Sometimes the supervisors were moving expired patients out to make room for a new one before the family had a chance to grieve, and, in at least one case, to even return to the hospital. You spent every minute caring for your patients and then had to stay another hour or two just to chart what you did for the last 12 hours. Most of us bonded over those long charting episodes. Also, I don't think I got an actual lunch break the entire time I worked there!
A lot of great doctors on staff
Too far from where I live and in a questionable location given current crime in Mobile.
