lakeland regional medical center
can anyone give me the real scoop on lrmc? what are the working conditions like now with the union in place? would you recommend this facility or suggest that new grads stay away?
what are the nurse/patient ratios?
how about pay and differentials?
benefits, in particular medical- how much is employer paid, how much is employee paid, etc.
are there seasonal layoffs? :uhoh21:
all input much appreciated!

Worked there for a year! I had a great nurse manager that really supported the use of LPN's! I live an hour away and had difficulties getting my daughters to school on time, thats the only reason I quit! Their really wasn't alot of hoopla about the union ,that I can remember... LRMC got me my IV class and my central line certification... I say go for it, remembering that ALL hospitals (not to mention all employers!) have some issues!
I never recieved any medical/dental benefits, I opted out... got an extra 52.00 in my check every payday.... They had good diffs, I can't remember the exact amount
! I was a new graduate when I walked in the door.... I got alot of great experience there... The other nurses there are also very friendly (mostly)!! hope this helps!
