Next Assigment, which should I choose??

I have just interviewed with 2 hospitals, and I am trying to decide which one to go with. One is Greenwich hosiptal in Greenwich, CT. It is on a cardiac PCU unit, pt ratio 6:1, and this is where I was stumped. If they are high acuity pts I don't think that would be very safe. Anyone ever worked at this hospital? The other is Yale New Haven Hospital. It is also for a cardiac PCU ratio 3/4:1, which sounds better to me. It is 2 12hr day shifts and 2 8hr evening 3-1130. I am kinda iffy about working 4 days a week... Has anyone ever worked this shift? Or at this hospital? Any advice is appriceated!

I worked at Yale in the ICU. I liked it. I was never placed in an unsafe position and I actually felt that patients were well cared for on the unit I worked. I'd be a bit hesitant to take the 6:1 contract

. That sounds like Med Tele rather than PCU.

I actually ended up accepting the one at Greenwich. I spoke with the manager and it is a PCU but the ratio is based on their acuity. I would like to go to Yale someday though!
