  • I worked in the IMCU department(s) in the hospital. I am an ICU Nurse, interviewed for an ICU position but was told that the only opening was on their IMCU (which is a dumping ground for any unstable/questionable patient q2 Vitals signs, tele monitoring and constant turn over with a 3:1 patient ratio.... You get ED admits and Rapid Responses that almost need ICU ) I was told opportunity to float to ICU or eventually just be moved up to ICU....... see now that that is never going to happen. The Patients here are needy, should be in the ICU for how closely they need to be monitored, but this is how this hospital works. EXAMPLES: CIWA patients going through DTs getting q10 min checks, Patients in DKA on Insulin gtts with q1 sugar checks, and you have 2 other patients that are on the call bell constantly. The staff and techs are helpful but there are just not enough hands on deck. Nobody has phones to call for help. and you work in Pods so it's you and one other RN with 6 rooms and Care Partners that go for breaks frequently. You and your pod mate are expected to break each other for lunch (though sometimes the charge or float nurse can do it if time permits) If your patients are not borderline ICU, then you are doing multiple transfers, discharged and admissions each day. Bottom Line: I wish I was getting paid more to work like this. I miss ICU and actually being able to use my brain instead of constantly doing tasks, trying to keep patients from falling and being stretched so thin when one or 2 of your patients need extra attention that you don't have time to give. 07/05/2017
