  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Overall I enjoyed my assignment here. I like the beauty and the outdoor opportunities of the Southwest. Staff is wonderful and friendly. The cafeteria food is good and has decent hours for a small hospital. The hospital is clean and beautiful. Albuquerque is high crime but I never experienced any issues during my time there and they have security monitoring the parking lot at night. My biggest complaint is the charting system, the computer system is McKesson which is a pain and they do a strange blend of computer and paper charting. It's a difficult system to navigate as a traveler. However, they are doing an EMR transition to Epic in the fall of 2017 so hopefully this will fix some of those issues. Docs are hit and miss and their intensivitsts are not the nicest guys. However you rarely see them at night. They run on a true skeleton crew at night which comes with the typical pros and cons. Low acuity patient population (most of the time), lots of GI bleeds and withdrawal patients. The staff is like family to each other and they treat each other so well. All the frustrations were minimized by the staff members helpfulness. A truly enjoyable assignment. 10/26/2016
  • The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of Albuquerque. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I found my own housing on the NW side. I would recommend living on the NE side of town, near Nob Hill. It is closer to local restaurants, bars, shopping, etc.
  • I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. The worst part is it's a rural hospital that has currently cut their travelers hours to PRN..... 10/06/2015
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was PPM. Housing was located in city of Los Alamos. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. This town basically shuts down between 9-12. You have a grocery store, and a couple nationally known restaurants.....everything else is off the hill. There are locally owned places, some are delicious, some we haven't tried.
