- I worked in the Admit hold-ED department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the admit hold position for 4 months total. There were only travel nurses working in this position. Most of the ED nurses that got pulled to work here did nothing but grippe and complaine about how much they hated working the admit hold! Techs were used as sitters so it was rare that we had any help from techs. It was explained to me that this was a med-surg position but it was far from how things operate on a med-surg floor. Aside from caring for the patients and initiating the admission process, we had to administer all medications including IV meds, draw all labs, start IV's, transport patients to their prospective floors and then clean the room/stretcher they were in and then we promptly received a new patient! As RN's you are expected to be "the nurse", phlebotomist, tech, housekeeper, HUC and transporter! Be prepared to stay busy,work hard and walk a lot! I had a privilege of working in the new hospital with some amazing travel nurses! We worked together and did what we needed to do to get the job done!! 10/24/2016 Housing was approximately 30 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of Denton. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I stayed with family who lived nearby, not in Dallas!
- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Very busy Hospital, avereaged 5/6 patients at one time. Great team work but lack of ancillary staff made it hard work. Techs were used as sitters for psych holds so Nurse has to do EVERYTHING for the patient, which is impossible when you have to see 5 Patient that can be very sick. Travelers would usually not be given "booth patient" or the really sick unless you've proven your self and had renewed contracts. Great team work among RNs made lots of Friends, but be ready to work your butt off. Great experience especially when it came to Prioritizing your patient care. 01/06/2016 Housing was approximately NA mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was NA. Housing was located in city of NA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I found my own housing which was a lot better and affordable close to the hospital.
- I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. It's located in Dallas right next to a DART station. There are some sketchy individuals hanging around sometimes. A section of Dallas PD is located on site. The scheduling for travelers is terrible! We get 1 week at a time. They do not allow travelers to take care of the super sick patients (unless you resign for a second contract) or the traumas. The hospital is huge so transports to the floors take a bit of walking. Techs are usually being used as sitters. The staff have all been super friendly! 12/10/2015 Housing was approximately N/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/a. Housing was located in city of N/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I stayed with family.
