- I worked in the 7main department(s) in the hospital. I worked on 7 main. The staff was very friendly and always willing to help. The unit was short staffed or inexperienced. which caused some undue tension. 12/03/2018 Housing was approximately 1.6 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Best western. Housing was located in city of Sayre. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the main ICU. 90% of the staff were very friendly. I arrived after a mass exodus of permanent staff. 11 recent resignations of RNís. There just wasnít enough staff for the number of patients. Ratio typically was 2:1, but at times was 3:1, and if patients didnít have floor beds to transfer to, they would assign 4 patients to 1 RN. These patients were scattered amongst a 10 Bed pod in the ICU. There are 3 pods, with 10 beds per pod. Also you are pulled frequently to the stepdown ICU, where the ratio is ALWAYS 3:1. Patients in both ICUís are typically very ill, needy, and demanding, with a sense of entitlement. You, as the nurse, do it all. There are a handful of what they call ďPatient Care PartnersĒ that are suppose to function as a CNA. They basically are useless. They donít do vital signs, blood sugars, and rarely a bath. Rarely ever do they answer a call light. Itís ridiculous. But they do phlebotomy, if they have time. The charge nurses do ABSOLUTELY NO patient care, and donít help staff at all. Every shift plays musical beds, shifting patients from pod to pod, to accommodate staffing. Charting is EPIC. However, they donít utilize charting by exception. You must document something in every single ďboxĒ whether it is relevant or not. Overall, not the worst experience Iíve had as a traveler............ I wonít return, and declined the offer to extend. Staff is way overworked and understaffed. Oh! And if you donít mind staying at least on to two hours past your shift to chart, then maybe this is the place for you. Not me. Not ever again. 08/18/2018 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Candlewood Suites . Housing was located in city of Sayre. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. There were some adjustments in management while I was here. There were frequent staff turnover during my stay. There was an interim manager while I was there, however a new permanent manager was to be starting the week after I left.
