So, I am relocating to California soon, and landed a job working at hoag hospital in the ER
Currently, I work in a Level I Trauma center here in metro Detroit, and see all sorts of populations, to very wealthy to living on the streets, along with all the ailments that go along with those lifestyles.
It is a very large hospital (over 1400 beds or so) and our ER is approx 136 beds. Pretty darn big! I get an average of 8 patients at a time, and get one tech to myself that helps with blood draws, ECGs, etc.
Hoag newport to me seems much, much, much more mellow. Granted, they do appear to be quite a busy ER.
I guess a main question I have is has any of you worked there, specifically in the ER? Know anybody who has?
Did they like it? Was the staff friendly? Was it a good patient population? I cant help but keep thinking it is going to be all SUPER rich people that are demanding and in a rush to get out of there. (Foundation members if you will), I always tend to butt heads with these people as many (not all) are used to being demanding and impatient (in my expierence here at least).
Any insight ANYONE has is MUCH appreciated! Thanks!
