My son has an anoxic brain injury due to a near drowning. He is amazing. Doing great! They called him "Miracle Boy" during his nearly 3 month stay there. We still see the neuro, physical medicine, and neuropsych. He goes on Oct. 10th for an OT eval. I love that place! Apply! You never know! It's a great place....the nurses there are awesome! Had a PICU nurse who told the docs they were being too loud and Jacob did NOT need the stimulation. She was a tiger when it came to Jacob. Even made me leave the room once when my presence was causing more agitation. She said he knew I was there and didn't understand why I wasn't doing anything to help him.
That was awful, but I know she did it for Jacob. He was sedated and I was allowed to come back.
I can't believe Mt. Carmel won't even let you interview now...especially considering how they are begging for nurses. Hospitals are funny that way, aren't they. I turned down a job at a hospital today and asked if it would hurt my chance for future employment there and she told me to speak to the nurse recruiter about that.
I'll take that as a YES!
Good luck in your new job....and maybe think about applying at Children's. Jake and I could have a new friend to visit during our trips up there.
