Let me check w/ my SIL she worked there....and she knows ALL the "news." http://www.carolinas.org/facilities/...oper/index.cfm
OK she says it wasn't all that good back when she worked there. BUT since they have joined with the catholic hospital St. Francis Bon Secour they have really improved their reputation.
What job are you looking at? You know travel to look at job prospects is a legitimate deduction
and Charleston is always beautiful.

Does anyone have any info,good or bad about this place? I have an opportunity to go their for Weekend Option with outrageous salary and benifits. Just wondering about the place because you know what they say about something that looks to good...... Thanks for your input [/QUOTE]
I have worked Roper and my observation is that because it is a privately run hospital. The physicians are rude and unlike a teaching facility you cannot do anything without a physicians order. Including simple tasks like IV's for cardiac patients, EKG.s for patients in chest pain. Roper's turnover is high which is why the salaries are high because Nurses want to practice their craft and not be treated as idiots.
