It is a productive place and nice to work as it is a teaching hospital.
Geriatric floor nurse (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 23, 2016
Always on your feet from the beginning to the end of the day as we deal with geriatric patients with several comorbidities.
It taught me on how to deal with patients with severe multiple uncontrolled diseases, that require constant and critical monitoring. It was challenging as a new graduate, but a challenge I appreciated for shaping my nursing career.
Although the upper management were not close enough, my floor manager was a great manager who was always there for the staff whenever needed.
Co-workers were terrific and always helpful
The hardest part of the job on this floor is high rate of mortality due to several comorbidities related also to the age of the patients.
The most enjoyable part is to see how grateful these patients are for any little help one can render to them.
enjoyable co-workers, great floor manager and safety
Poor compensation in every meaning of the word.
