    I have been working at Virginia Hospital Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is great. Staff is friendly.

    Cons

    Short staffed many nights. Pt load is usually 5 -6 patients. So many employees thinking the grass is greener on the other side, but its not. I've heard its like this everywhere. Main problem is can't see staff long enough to hire more people . If they waited around longer, the staffing issue would be solved. Would like to get charge nurse pay too.

    Advice to Management

    Pay charge nurse rates at least $2.00 more an hour. Get more PCAs and sitters. This would make the units more functional. We have many elder its come in that sundown at night and it changes the staffing because we have to take someone off the floor to sit.
