- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. I just completed my assignment and I would never consider another assignment at this facility. I have never felt so overwhelmed with the way the workload was dealt. If you weren’t a part of the “cliche” you got the crappiest assignment and was overloaded with the highest patient load. It did not matter if I just got a patient, or if there were other rooms available, I would get stacked with however many rooms I had available. There were times I would get patients from the waiting room and/or several EMS patients at one time. With no help from other nurses or techs (what techs?? No matter how many techs were on the floor they were never to be found!!). It does not matter, no one is going to help you!! I am not the only one who feels this way, I was told several times, by others who work here, it depends on who you are to wether or not you have help from others. Most of the charge nurses were not fair, I can’t say this about all of them, but for the most part...it depends on who you are. While I was there several nurses left, full time, and I can understand why!! 09/04/2018 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of Fort Mill. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
- I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. I am a med/surg nurse and was offered this PCU position and did absolutely fine with it. Occasionally they had vented patients and those were the only patients I wasnt allowed to have since I have no vent experience. Ratios were never more than 1:5, and usually 1:4. I worked night shift and we were more of a younger crowd, all got along great, had fun and we were an awesome team. Charge nurses were free and very helpful (although those particular charges aren't there anymore). Charting system is Mckesson, which is a good system, though the charting required for PCU is excessive. A lot of stroke patients, tube feeds, total care. A lot of the staff was unhappy there, but the grass is always greener ;) I've been in bad hospitals and this is not one of them. Rock Hill is a beautiful, well populated area with a lot to do. 04/18/2017 Housing was approximately 55 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
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. McKesson is the EMR; No CBOE. Physicians don't co-sign orders. Most verbal and telephone orders written by nurses. Nurses expected to obtain consents and call consults. This is a FLOAT position. 6-7 ICUs open based on census. The facility plans to open up more beds, but currently isn't adequately staffed. Shift supervisors provided minimal support. Their primary responsibility is to audit charts. Punitive work environment!! 12/24/2016 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Pikeville Commons. Housing was located in city of Pikeville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
- I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. The floor is extremely cliquey and will often exclude travelers and give them the worst assignments plus most admissions and not offer to help. 04/29/2016 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Gramercy Square. Housing was located in city of Charlotte, NC. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1.
