Maybe the hosopital has down-sized. Is it possible there may be more than one hospital there? Even a clinic?

I remember when Poplar Bluff had two hospitals across the street from each other. I've been in both of them. Plus there was yet another one a few blocks away. So why couldn't the new hospital house two different hospitals? Of course, there are probably laws and regulations against that now.

I forget about that one. Perhaps PB will soon be back to it's glory days. Especially, if we get the third hospital.

<quoted text>first of all copper top is not a ER they are barely an Urgent care, they should be called after hours care they can only take care of like flu/cold symptoms anything else and they send you to Hospital.
the new hospital on PP at copper top is open now. I'm pretty sure they have an ER, but for now it's only got three bed, but it's a start and although I haven't been there competition is what this town needs. Plus they plan on making it bigger but have to wait for city approval or something like that. Not 100% on the details !!
Copper top is NOT and ER, they are barely Urgent care, they are basically after hours care and they only seem to treat flu/cold symptoms, if you go for chest pain, snake bites or broken limbs you will be referred to Hospital.

They are opening without hiring anyone new. Nurses are quitting on every floor, to get off the Hindenburg before it opens.They only hire 2 year nurses, so this hardly matters.

Actually, they have quite a few RNs with BSNs. The degree doesn't make the nurse. I don't care if you are a CNA, LPN, ADN, BSN or MSN, what makes the nurse is your drive and desire to go that extra mile for the patients you are caring for. Sometimes nurses forget that if there were no patients, they would not have a job. I have a BSN and am working on my Masters. I left the hospital because there is no real incentive to go further. The culture of many of the nurses there is functional nursing. They complete a list of duties each shift but don't ever think outside of the box. That said, I have worked with some amazing nurses there but when they don't get the support they need and have earned, they either leave or give up. It's a shame. OK, I've said my two cents worth!

Wasn't that my point-2year nurses are all that work there anymore?
BSN & further degrees are pushing paper, not doing any patient care.

No, you missed my point. It doesn't matter what degree of RN you are. PBRMC does not differentiate between ADN and BSN. It's not the degree, it's the nurse themselves. They can be desk sitting-paper pushers if they want or they can be out on the floor when they can, if they choose to. I have worked with both types and both types do exist at the hospital. Unfortunately, the bad tend to stand out more than the good. I've also worked with some wonderful LPNs and CNAs as well.
