Pros: night cafeteria with pretty good, hard working employees, great cardiac physicians, good continuity of care, managers were respectful and hard working.
Cons: different floors have very different ways of doing things (breaks, patient care, management directions/rules)
Munson Medical Center is one of the best hospitals that I've been to. The cardiac unit is very up to date and utilizes the best cardiac physicians around the state and country. Patients come from all over to receive care from this facility. Being a part of the health care community at Munson was a great experience. Management on A4 was good. Manager was very understanding but tough, used our unit as a guinea pig for new hospital interventions. It was very interesting. Co-workers were very hard working and had great critical thinking skills. On a cardiac floor, learning something new is a daily thing. The most enjoyable part of the job was utilizing critical thinking, working with patients and their families, and having hard working co-workers. The night could be crazy busy or a dead, depending on the time of year. Summer was always busier than winter. Usually I had 4-5 patients to take care of for the night. Started at 7pm, recieved report, started by introducing new new via bedside greetings, took care of loose ends from previous shift if able to, looked up patient information, did research, and took care of patients until 7am. Anything can happen at night, staying on your toes was important.
