  • I worked in the PACU department(s) in the hospital. Extremely easy going PACU. Overstaffed at times, therefore, I was floated to their ASU a few times a week where a lot of older nurses wanted the younger nurses to do most of the work. My rating for the PACU is 5. Rating for ASU is 2. Average case load a day for PACU is around 20 patients and very low acuity. Average case load for ASU includes preop and all of the phase II, average is 40-50 patients per day with about 8 nurses. Pros of the position are no call/no weekends, nice to travelers, and location of hospital. Cons of the position are getting floated to ASU for PACU being overstaffed, management doesn't care about travelers, day to day scheduling, and floating to other CPMC campuses when overstaffed. Overall the hospital has been good to me for 13 weeks. I wouldn't extend here due to having to make up hours at other campuses when overstaffed and getting floated to ASU every other day when PACU is overstaffed. If the position says PACU at this hospital, they really mean you'll be placed in the miserable ASU for 13 weeks. There are numerous travelers at this hospital who were supposed to be in pacu and ended up being stuck in glorified med-surg/ASU for 13 weeks. If ASU is your thing then go for it! 05/24/2016
  • Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was my own housing. Housing was located in city of SF. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
