former ICU RN (Former Employee), Vicksburg, MS – November 21, 2013
I would not recommend this place for any nurse. Administration allows physicians to verbally abuse the nurses and then disiplines the nurse for whatever the physician was mad about. I have seen nurses terminated for hearsay with no evidence. This is because the only way to keep your job there is to be liked by the right people. I have seen very incompetant nurses get promoted, such as a Canadian nurse with no experience gets head of ICU over all the other nurses who have been there for years and she was overheard laughing about it and saying that she didn't even know anything about a ventalator. I've had 2 nurse managers put in a nurse's file that they "walked off the job" when they turned in and worked a 2 week noticed just to try and ruin their record. This is essentially the worst hospital I've ever worked in.
Clinical Experience (Former Employee), Vicksburg, MS – August 23, 2013
River Region Health System is a great place for Surg. Tech. students to learn from experienced, hard-working, and dedicated Surgical Technologist. The staff at River Region is very friendly and helpful. They take the time to show students the correct way. They have patience while working with the students and are eager to help better the education of future Surgical Technologist.
