  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Department is very busy. 4 room assignment with overflow rooms assumed by charge nurse. 18 bed main ER with a fast track area and admission holding area which isn't always open. Charting is Paragon (talk of changing to Epic in the future) and is not particularly user-friendly - times out very quickly and multiple screens used when charting. Much of my OT was spent catching up on charting. Doctors write orders on a paper face sheets which get inputted into the computer by unit clerks. I was told they will be practicing CPOE shortly. Orders can be easily missed if they are not placed in the appropriate holding area. Holding patients in ER is common as the floors are quite often understaffed or at max capacity. Diversion not common practice. The department is very clean - house keeping is wonderful! Wonderful ER manager. Most staff very friendly. Nurses expected to arrange transfers and fill out MOT's - though some clerks will assist. Techs are present to assist with saline locks, blood draws, urine collections and other various duties so they can get very busy very quickly. All ER physicians were very pleasant to work with on most occasions. Helicopter parked on site when not in use. The town has a population of about 35,000 so there are a lot of resources but is about 2 hours from any big cities. There is a new dog park which is lovely but no area to take the dog swimming that isn't plastered with alligator warnings. I felt quite safe in this town. Taqueria Jalisco Seafood is an excellent Mexican restaurant. 08/17/2015
  • Housing was approximately 2.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Falling Water Apartments. Housing was located in city of Lufkin. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. All bills paid, pet friendly with no weight limit, covered parking, furnished apartments optional
