    I worked at Upstate Medical University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    High-level care experience. Research and evidenced based protocols. Good pay and benefits. Well-known teaching hospital. Medical staff and RNs have collaborative approach to patients.

    Cons

    Ever-increasing work load that will only get worse with time, so high risk for patient/staff injuries and very bad for staff's own health due to the work strain and stress.

    Advice to Management

    If staffing levels are unsafe at the Downtown Campus, transfer patients to the Community General Campus which has more open beds, but stop admitting more and more patients through the emergency department when there are not enough hands to properly care for them - or staff will unfortunately keep leaving this regional Trauma-1 Center hospital. Sadly, this is a problem for most hospitals nationwide.
