Pros: administration didn't forget night shift. you learned priorities, triage, security, time management.
Cons: some folks, true anywhere... were not on same page.
Used to be, at least, a great place to make your bones. Every possible RT intervention explored, coached and encouraged. 200 patients a night in ER., spontaneous sections, tubes, art lines, 12 bed unit. In season, always on diversion.
You are not going to just hang out and spray down the floor. I don't know who's at the helm now, but in the day, we had total autonomy, respect and need for our experience.
