    You must be willing to fill the gap when the workload changes. Team identity is crucial. Fatigue can be a major factor.

    Pros

    wonderful and supportive management, valued staff, fun atmosphere, lots of continuing education, flexibility, professionalism. The new hospital is beautiful and the separate patient and staff hallways were especially conducive to keeping patient care areas quiet.

    Cons

    Because of the varied outpatient locations and sites, it can be difficult to feel like one staff since there are other people on your team that you may only see a few times a year. Travel between sites can be difficult from a traffic standpoint and the shuttle to/from the main hospital can be a bit difficult and not on time.
