  • I worked in the med/surg department(s) in the hospital. nurse to patient ratios are regularly 1:7 and rough! Often 2 admissions a night per nurse, sometimes 3. very poor sense of teamwork. Most everyone is very friendly, and most nurses work well together, but some will literally let your patients crash and not do a thing. (happened to me). charge nurse is a joke here. They take a full load of patients so they cant help at all. The assignment is rarely ever completed by the start of shift, so you spend 15-20 min standing around waiting for your assignment. Staff doesn't arrive on time to relieve you. I once waited 45 minutes and they still weren't there. VERY poor staffing. Some amazing CNAs, some not so much. They use a very cheap charting system, though I did like it. You carry around an itouch and scan your meds with it. The order entry is prehistoric and terrible. Probably one of the worst things is there is NO 24 hour pharmacy!!! How do you have a 24 hour hospital but no 24 hour pharmacy?!?!? Insane. Night shift is stuck running around the hospital to find meds, mixing them ourselves, and putting in our own orders. I hated this assignment when I first started and almost quit, but stuck it out and am now used to the madness, sadly. 04/18/2017
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of n/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I commuted from home
