  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. The ER staff and managers are very helpful and welcoming to travelers. The charting requirements are a little excessive, so expect to spend more time charting than normal. Ratios are 3:1 except when covering breaks when ratios are 4:1. The charge nurses are really good about letting you be 1:1 if you have a critical patient. We were always fully staffed and always had plenty of techs available to assist. Travelers never get assigned to triage. ER nurses have a set schedule that rotates biweekly, so you'll work with the same charge nurse and same staff every shift. ER nurses work every other weekend and never work more than 3 shifts in a row. Patient population is fairly healthy in general and everyone has follow up care because they're Kaiser members. Overall, lower acuity than most facilities, but fairly high volume. There's a good bit of pediatric patients. Breaks are guaranteed and someone covers your patients while you are taking your break. I always got three 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch every single shift, with coverage. There was a lot of training online and little tests prior to starting, but nothing that was "if you don't pass, your contract is cancelled". There was no boring classroom orientation when I began. Only an EPIC class and a quick "let me show you around the ER and have you sign some papers" thing. Management was always very friendly and approachable. Charge nurses have your back. Overall, it's a really good place to do a travel contract. 03/26/2016
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Renaissance. Housing was located in city of Orange. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Housing was decent. The complex looked pretty new. Large open floorplans, balconies, assigned parking spaces, two pools, two workout rooms, right between the 57 and 5 freeways, so easy access to just about anywhere. Huge outlet mall right down the street. Angel stadium and Honda Center less than a mile away. Disneyland just a few miles away.
