  • I worked in the ER & float department(s) in the hospital. It is unknown to me how this hospital is ranked supposedly as the best hospital in NJ (or anywhere else). An unbelievable amount of patient shuffling. Patients moved around the ER up to 5 days. I have never taken care of angrier patients in my entire career. After assuming care for these individuals it is your responsibility make them happy. I was awaiting the moment someone mentioned infection control! Basically, if a spot, room, equipment etc... is needed to shuffle patients, nothing needed to be cleaned. It was amazing how on one side of a curtain could be a strict isolation "room" until needed 3 minutes later and then it was alright to place someone else there. I would advise keeping track of punches in and out. They are manually changed to show less than 12 1/2 hours and automatically punch you for lunch regardless if you got one & there are no breaks. Frequently your replacement is forgotten to be scheduled, with a supervisor approving you to stay, only for the staffing office to take away the hours because they didn't approve it. $8 a day for travelers to park & bring something to eat from home. If you do get lunch, plan on $10 & up per day. ($216 less than you banked on when signing at minimum). Little contact with the NM, who is the person rating you. They refuse to sign time sheets, so I wasn't paid for 3 weeks. Two days before your contract ends they get around to telling you they are not renewing. On a brighter note the pediatric unit was beautiful, organized, clean with great friendly nurses. The nurses on 3 (cardiac) were also very friendly & helpful. As for local restaurants or things to do, I don't know never seen them. 07/23/2015
