    Pros

    You get a paycheck... that's about the only pro there is to this place. Not much else to say there.

    Cons

    The hospital is so small that everyone gossips about everyone. No one has anything better to do than stir up the pot. It's sad because patient care comes second to drama. There is nothing nice about the place. There are so many problems and its something new everyday. They by no means have it together. They need a total revamp and its hard to say where to even start with that place. During the time I was there no one communicated with me about anything that was happening in the department. During the time that I was there I learned that they have had 45 nurses in a matter of 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire more staff. In all departments. If you pay people a comparable rate maybe they will be more willing to stay and not go to another facility.
