I worked at Galesburg Cottage Hospital full-time
Veteran nurses that have a ton of knowledge they can share with new nurses. Competitive salary and benefits. This hospital was involved in many community projects.
At the time I worked there, they where VERY short handed and nurses were taking on too many patients at a time. The veteran nurses as mentioned above where too busy to share their experiences with new nurses. The locked pediatric unit was just a storage area. It should have been opened and kids should have been taken care of in there.
Advice to Management
My immediate supervisor was great and she tried to make everyone happy and I don't think that is possible to do so. But she tried. She had faith in her new nurses which made us feel valuable then. My only advice is to keep hiring nurses.
