    I have been working at University of Chicago Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I like my fellow respiratory therapists. I have had exposure to many different things I feel I was never exposed to in clinicals.

    Cons

    It's a teaching hospital so you have many residents and fellows who still don't know much about respiratory. They write inappropriate orders--medication and other therapy wise. Our input regarding a patient's respiratory care is undervalued and many times downright ignored by doctors who don't know the correct indication for respiratory medications or therapies such as CPT, etc. We have many unnecessary treatments. We also have next to no say in ventilator settings and we just simply have to follow what the doctors say without discussion. I feel we don't get to actually use what we learned and trained for in school. Many nurses are disrespectful and expect us to do what they say and tell us that the patient needs a breathing treatment when most of the time the patient does not. We are constantly very much understaffed.
