I have posted about an ICU/CCU I did contracts in a while back in S. C.. Great bunch of people....and I ended up doing 3 or 4 contract there...until they realized I was never going to come on full-time perm..
They were very much like a family...and I had much respect, and still do for all of those who worked in the unit. The fact that I signed at least 3
13 weeks contracts there...should say it all!
The ICU was a 7 pt bed area...and the CCU was 6 I think. The units were seperated by a wall...and it didn't matter where the nurse was that needed help. If someone was free in either area...they came to help! We did the baths each nite the same way. We started on one end...and continued until everyone was done. If someone who was helping had to run back to their pt...then someone else jumped in. I love the tag teaming...that was the norm when we got admits!
I really miss those people...and if it wasn't in S. C....I would probably go back. But I'm tired of the heat and humidity....and looking forward to CA..by the beginning of next year. Glad to hear that you have found a good place to work MidwestRN Money doesn't always say it all....
