The nurses and staff are the best there is.
Registered Nurse ICU, Knoxville, TN - August 14, 2015
typical day: Clock in, get report from dayshift nurse, catch up on things that dayshift did not have time to d, assess your patients, and determine if there are needs or issues that the doc needs to address right away. Manage the total care of 2 to 3 ICU patients, ventilators, titrate critical drips, meds, etc. Everyone in the UNIT on night shift worked as a team because it was years before CNA's were hired in the unit. Most enjoyable were my co workers. Hardest part of working there were those times when I expressed my concerns on the staffing issues and relayed the concerns of patient safety and how important it is to staff based on acuity in the unit and I felt as though what I said was not valued by management.
