Has anyone worked in the ICU's at either of the Queen's hospitals? Wondering what the culture is like? How are the Dr's? Is the patient population mostly DKA, CIWA & Sepsis? I currently work at a Level 1 trauma hospital and considering moving back to our home. Any advise or insight would be appreciated. I know the island is "small" but a general sense of the units would be helpful. Mahalo!
West is pretty low acuity, almost more of a step-down unit. Mostly due to the limited services available at West (not even HD available).
Punchbowl has 4 different ICU's. Medical, surgical/trauma, neuro, and cardiac.
