  • I worked in the M/S tele department(s) in the hospital. I would start with 5 patients and they will go up to six. I would have 4 discharges and 4 new admissions. Many of the patients I would get in the afternoon around 5 pm and discharge them home the following morning. This is a common thing here. The acuity is low of the patients but the constant turnaround is insane. You do work with LPNs here and are assigned to a zone with an LPN so you have the responsibilities of that involved in your assignment that could go up to 6 in addition to the constant admit and discharging of patients. Stanly regional MS tele floor has no where for the nurses to sit so you are standing for 12 hours. They removed the chairs in the hallway during my assignment and said no chairs. I rented a room from a security guard while I worked and that was 12 miles away out in the beautiful country. I would commute from a town in NC about 80 miles away. You are really not learning anything new here just marking time and working like a bitch doing it. The CNAs had at least 10 patients on their assignments so a lot of care is not provided. Like any hospital family takes priority regardless of how stupid they are and they are stupid. The co workers love to turn off your pumps so if that bothers you stay away. The nurses try to be help you in patient care but are really unexperienced and small things they do to try to help you is not really helping at all. An example is assisting in giving pain meds and not informing you and there was one thing I forgot but the nurse took the order from the doctor and did not enter it into the computer so I had to call to redo everything and come across like an idiot to the doc. The staff is loud especially one of the charge nurses I could hear her talking and laughing all the way down a very long hall. I really can't recommend this hospital to anyone because it is more of a glorified nursing home than anything. For a small hospital with low acuity it is very chaotic, understaffed and poorly laid out. The taking away of the chairs was the tipping point for me. 07/01/2019
  • Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was odell acres. Housing was located in city of albemarle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
  • I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the ED, there area in general is a small town with a large drug addiction and mental health population. Overall my experience was terrible, I signed a contract for days was assigned to nights. I had one day requested off and was originally scheduled that day, told them that day off was in my contract and needed it off and the manager got an attitude over fixing it. They violated my contract multiple times. The manager was really nice at first but after I turned down a request for an extension she refused to acknowledge me in the hall way. I was given a critical patient and the staff would not help with my questions on hospital policy. Overall they stay short staffed, most of the perm staff will not help you out if you are drowning, there are a few perm staff there that are absolutely wonderful to work with you just have to hope that you can be scheduled with them. Finding housing was very difficult, I ended up staying in a hotel the entire time. The hotels are on the other side of the fence of the housing projects so you just have to be mindful of being alone in the parking lot. 09/28/2016
  • Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was hotel. Housing was located in city of Albemarle. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.

  • Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private owner. Housing was located in city of Mt Gilead. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Loved my housing, beautiful privately owned Carriage House approx 15 miles from hospital. Private and secluded.
