    Pros

    Very intense program. The load of patients is balanced. Very dynamic environment

    There is a lot of social work that usually we have to take care ourselves. We have good support from our hospital, though, and it is improving

    Pros

    Very open to giving new grads opportunity. Their telemetry has a group of dedicated nurses. Pension benefits could be worth it if one is alive and healthy enough to reach retirement.

    Cons

    Case load could be terribly dangerous to one's license. Management is not open to new ideas, only plays lip service. The culture of accountability is lacking among some staff and enforcement from management is absent. Culture of blame and not just culture is what is practiced here.

    Advice to Management

    Carry out your promises and stop all these lip service you give during leadership rounds. Engage your staff and show sincere appreciation. Pay attention to unhealthy sense of entitlement being exhibited by workers from some culture

    I worked at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good hands on experience, different patients with multiple cormorbidities . Hospital is open to new grads. Some staff better to work than others. Union benefits.

    Cons

    ER is a very unsafe environment to work in. Pay is terrible. When very violent patients attack staff, staff is usually blamed and reprimanded and patient is seen as victim. Hospital police sit on their phones all day and have no sense of urgency during volatile situations. RNs are over worked and underpaid and many are unqualified for their positions. But since there is a high turn over rate due to poor working conditions unqualified ones are hired out of desperation. Teaching and teamwork not promoted during meetings. Management too overwhelmed to listen to criticism. Unfair advancement of newer RNs due to politics and brown nosing. Unrealistic work load with provided staffing . Unsanitary hospital environment with hostile patients and rude staff.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more teamwork and team player atmosphere. Hire component staff. Protect staff better after altercations with violent patients. Order more monitors and IV polls so staff doesn't spend time looking for simple items in critical situations. Increase work morale with better incentives and create a constant of work expectation throughout the ER. Update the dirty cafeteria. Be leaders not paycheck collectors.

    Poor nurse management, lack of communication. Massive number of difficult admissions. Poor staffing about half the time. Little appreciation on the part of the doctors and nurse managers.

    Talk to your RN's on the floor, respond to them promptly, listen to them, and show some gratitude.
