A typical day in the ER could involve 50 patients or over 200. The team was excellent, the managers hired great staff and only added more skills and excellence to the team. Everyone is hard working, down to the last employee. When things got tough, you could count of several people to have your back. At times the patient population can demand a lot of you, but with the right attitude and the right co-workers, there isn't a challenge you can't make it through.
Would highly recommend to anyone interested in ER work.

Patient Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Columbus OH – March 19, 2014
As a nursing assistant or PCA you could be the only PCA for the floor, the max number of patients I can recall being accountable for was forty-five patients. However during times like this the nurses are suppose to do primary care and help. Just like with any organization you have some excellent teamwork and then not so good teamwork. The managers come and go. We have had some really amazing managers. The co-workers were nice. The hardest part about the job was not being respected by the nurses becuase we are "only a" PCA. However a good or bad PCA can make or break a nurses night. The most enjoyable part of the job were the interesting and diverse patients, and learning from the doctors and nurses.
