  • I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. Will give travelers all of the very sick patients. Techs do not help. Staff is very cliquish. This facility is incredibly busy. I did not enjoy working here. I would not return. 07/22/2017
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private home. Housing was located in city of El Paso. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
  • I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. The OR is very inefficient and understaffed. They schedule as many cases as they can regardless of appropriate staffing. They also do not adhere to your contract specifications regarding call, weekends, and normal hours. The call system is completely ambiguous and you can expect to work at least 12 hours if on call during a weekend day. However, if you want to work a ton of hours then this a good place for that. The staff is receptive to travelers and most of the surgeons are friendly, but they do seem to mitigate their lack of staffing by overworking their travelers. The learning curve is longer than most places because of how they pull cases and a lack of preference cards (unless you seek one out from an RN). The OR has obviously been built onto which makes for a very cramped and scattered layout. The worst aspect is the horrid lack of communication. Don't expect any sort of orientation or help getting started. The area is decent depending on what you want to do outside of work. Plenty of shopping and restaurants, but not much culture or art. I found a lot of outdoor activities though. It would help you GREATLY to know Spanish there. Overall, if they pay is right and you are only going to El Paso to work, then it will be an okay experience. Otherwise find a more functional OR. 06/02/2017
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was High Ridge. Housing was located in city of El Paso. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. The apartment was fine. Lots of young army guys that like to drink and be loud, but only certain nights. The units are old and not fancy, yet are near as bad as I've seen. Location is great as I can get to the hospital in about 10 minutes max. Close to many amenities. Only had 1 roach in my apartment the whole time and no major maintenance issues. Internet is cheap and no problem finding a close parking spot. Not worth the money you lose, unless (like me) you don't want the hassle of leases and utility bills.
  • I worked in the Med-Surg (3-west) department(s) in the hospital. I worked night shit and the charge nurses were unsupportive, and unknowledgeable. They sat on their phones and watched Netflix during the entire shift. Nurses would have 6-7 patients, and they would watch TV/Movies. When asked about hospital policies, they were unable to provide those policies. 11/12/2015
  • Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was West Town Apartment. Housing was located in city of El Paso. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Don't stay here!! The apartment itself was nice, but the management is awful! We were quotes around $1000 prior to showing up, but when it came time to sign the lease it turned out to be $1300. There were constantly discrepancies on our monthly invoice, and management could never explain why. There was a bird infestation and the sidewalks were covered in bird poop. Also, parking sucked because no one wants to park in the areas where the birds poop. We had some items that we listed on our move-in list. Maintenance just came into the apartment without our knowledge while we weren't home to fix these items. This is illegal, and it just didn't feel appropriate.
