Any RNs in OH know what it's like working at MetroHealth?

I currently work there and love it, Im on a unit with great teamwork and management so that helps. Some units aren’t a good as others. Good company to work for, competitive pay for the area, great benefits. New hospital building opening this fall.

Metrohealth is a county run hospital so they get patients from inner city and trauma center referrals. It has its challanges in departments not unlike any other place. Some departments are better than others at staffing. The ICU and burn unit staff are exemplary and so is OB. If you want real world experience like no other place it is a great place to work and learn.

I retired from there a few years back. Put in 25 years. It was a wonderful place to work when I was there. Things have changed a lot since then Im told. I would not want to work inpatient anymore with the way Im told it is run now, but I think that's everywhere you go. If you're a new grad I think it would be perfect. The PERS retirement used to be excellent. Now it's mediocre, which I understand why they are having a hard time with retention these days. There was a time you couldn't get in.
Nobody ever left

Depends on the unit. The patient population is almost exclusively people without insurance or those with Medicare and Medicaid. There's a very big Hispanic population as well, so there are a lot of patients who don't speak English. As for what it's like to work there I only know the emergency room for myself. It sounds like inpatient units are having the same issue of understaffing everywhere else is, however metro just added some new benefits to try and help keep employees. We got a small raise in addition to the normal raises you get as you stay with the job as well as a yearly bonus for being a certified nurse and a few other things I can't remember. The thing is we have so few nurses (like everywhere else) that patients are backing up in the emergency room waiting for an inpatient bed. The average time I'm seeing med Surg patients wait is around 2 days give or take. What unit you're looking at can change a lot as well. I'm not sure if this helped at all.
