Was a good teaching unit
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLAugust 22, 2013
Cons: no place but unit lounge for breaks and always called out to help someone else
Typical day has you getting and assignment and then being pretty much on your own.there was not a lot of help among staffers.with each other Most were concerned with texting or working on their laptop computers unfortunately there was a very clickish atmosphere and the charge nurse was often off the unit.I learned and refined all of my skills during the 17years I worked there but in the last 2 years administration changes and the hospital was less upfront with the LPNs working in ICU. THEN we were told that we had a limited time to get an Rn or transfer to floor work. The time frame would require full time coarse work and none of us ( ages 55-61) felt we could do. We had been lead to believe we would stay in ICU until outted by illness or retirement.. .Work became a hard place to want to go to do to the people but I always loved patient care and working with the patients.

Overall good place to work with excellant benefits
LPN (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLSeptember 25, 2012
Busy hospital setting taking care of patients. I learned and
fine tuned my skills in years past.
Management has had it's ups and downs. We had a period
when we were so micro managed that morale was sooooo
low and tension so high you could cut it with a knife. Fortunately
for us there was a complete change of managers with changes
which made alot of difference. People felt happier and more at ease.
Co-workers for the most part help each other when needed and
after working with and getting to know each other for a while (my
case a long time) It's like your work family-sharing in the good times
of your life and at times listening or sharing an unhappy or sad
event in your co-workers personal life or your own. Of course, the
more people you have the more different personalities you have
and once in awhile you'll have someone you really don't want to work with, but being the professional that we are, getting along is a must.
The hardest part would be since we are in healthcare we see other
peoples loved ones not doing well with unfavorable diagnosis' and
all we have to give is a comforting word and you feel so helpless.
As a nurse, being short staffed makes your job harder to give the
care that patients deserve.It's sometimes hard to get management
to see the difference between quality and quantity. Adequate and
exceptional staffing produces quality, AND customer satisfaction,
which is the number 1 concern these days to companies.
Most enjoyable would be working with the coworkers that make you
feel comfortable and give you support when you need it.
Also that one patient who was so sick and possibly near death
that has a full miraculas recovery and goes home to WALK back into
you unit to thank you all for her good care.
Also for the free meals on holidays and other employee recognition
benefits( even though they been scaled back due to economy financial reasons)

I worked night shift and so was not included in activities for the hospital.
Charge Nurse on Med/Surg Floor (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLAugust 10, 2012
Pros: once every 6 months the hospital would feed us as a thank you.
Cons: would be short staffed most of the time.
I would start my shift by getting report on all the patients of the floor. Following that would return to the nursing station to start taking doctors orders off of charts and make sure duties was being performed by staff and call a huddle to discuss problems and procedures patients was going to be having. The rest of the shift was to do paper work and prepare patients for procedures for the following morning. Then to prepare paper work for day shift. I learned how to communicate with nurses in many situations (bad and good). The management meetings we would have was really not inspiring. They would ask our opionon but it really did not go any furthur than that. I loved working with all of my co-workers we had a great group of nurses and we worked very well together like a well oiled clock. We was a team and was always there to help each other. I would say the hardest part of my job was trying to let one of the LPN's know what her limitations and job descriptions was. It was hard because I did not have the backing of my director. The most enjoyable part of my job was going to work every night and taking care of the patients. I loved going in and talking with each patient and getting to know them and helping them get better or to the point where they could help themselves and seeing the look on their faces when they made those first steps or lifted their spoon. It could make you very humble.

nice pharmacists
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLAugust 6, 2012
the pharmacists inside are great people to work with the technicians that have been there forever will not train you right and make working difficult. The prn pay is excellent value but the full time rate is below par and a insult to anyone who went to school.

Grat place for community members to have close medical care.
Staff Nurse/Relief Charge Nurse (Former Employee), St.Petersburg, FL 33707May 1, 2012
Pros: co-workers, ability to do the job i loved
Cons: any activities were directed at day shift, niight shift got shafted .
Most of the co-workers are great patient care people who are working short staffed. Management is like they are everywhere else, trying to get the job done with what they have available.
The hardest part of the job was the 12hr shifts and the most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers.
