Pros: free parking
Cons: too many to list
A typical day is actually not typical at all when you work in an critical care environment where things can change in the blink of an eye. I love my job as a nurse in my unit and can not say enough good things about my co-workers, they are supportive, they embody a team atmosphere and push you to learn and grow all the time. I would not be the nurse I am today without them. There are many layers to the hospitals management the unit assistant manager I think very highly of and feel she has the best interest of the staff, patients and company in mind when making decisions. The chief nursing officer and CEO however I feel only care about the financial aspect of the hospital and the bottom line and will stop at nothing to make good numbers. The nurse to patient ratios have increase, the tech to patient ratios have increased, so much so that floor nurses are only pill pushers and there are not enough techs to help answer call lights. Over the past two years we have lost over 200 nurses alone due to poor morale and management from our CNO. Our benefits packages have been the worst they have ever been, with the employee having more out of pocket expenses and co-insurance costs, even if the have services at their hospital. I once loved working in this hospital and could not say enough good things about it, however they has changed drastically and I'm sorry to say that I could not recommend working here anymore.
