I just found out that the hospital where I REALLY want to work is a Planetree hospital and it sounds AWESOME. From what the nursing recruiter was telling me, it is totally patient centered. A cart brings different food around and the patients can pick what they want; if they are able to take their own meds, they do; pets can visit 30 minutes a day; there is a kitchen where families can cook for the patients; volunteers come in and make cookies in the kitchen; aromatherapy is offered; massage is offered to patients and staff; the list goes on! I'm wondering if any of you work or have worked in a Planetree hospital and what you think of it.
The website for Planetree is www.planetree.org
if anyone is interested in looking at it.
