I work there now as a Nurse Intern. Nice hopsital, good staffing, nice working environment. Don't know too much about the L&D unit, except that it's NEW, and the last time I worked, they had delievered about 20 babies to date.
Yes, they are HCA. I havent experienced anything "bad" working there because they are HCA.
A good thing is the hospital is really small (about 64 beds total) and they do float their RN's to the ICU/Tele/ER, so you get a range of experience.
Another thing about the hospital is the patient load. The nurses dont have anymore than 5 patients. Sometimes, they may have 6 (if a nurse calls in or something), but they make sure each nurse has their own PCT for their patient load if that is the case. Normally, the patient load is 3:1, with 4 nurses on one hall and a PCT for the entire hall.
The clients there are mostly older and they come mainly from John Knox.
Overall, it's a good place to work. However, I don't think I'm gonna stay there after graduation because the acuity is not that great in my opinion.
