- I worked in the CVICU department(s) in the hospital. If I had to estimate, I would say that I worked on the unit that I was contracted to about 1/3 of the time. Other wise, I was floated here there and everywhere. When I initially interviewed, I told that I could be floated to the step down unit associated with CVICU as well as the medical ICU at Banner Baywood (attached to Banner Heart)..this was not the case. I was literally floated anywhere possible..the ED, procedural areas, med/surg tele units..There was also no consistency to being floated, it was somewhere new everyday. If I knew I would have floated this much, I would have advocated to get paid as a float nurse. They also reserve the right to cancel you 1x per week. I got cancelled for a full shift one time but was "pushed back" or put on call multiple times. One time, I was called in for three hours only to cover peoples lunches and then sent home. The shame of it all was that the staff on the CVICU are so nice and helpful-would have had a much better experience if I could have worked there all the time. Most of the MDs are rude and condescending to nurses-especially if they don't know you. 90% of orders are verbal orders. If you ask that the MD enter it themselves, be prepared for an earful. Save yourself, don't take a contract here. 06/24/2017 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 I found my own. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. I found my own housing.
- I worked in the CV OR department(s) in the hospital. This hospital is on a long list of returns. The staff here are not friendly to travelers what so ever. The management talk a good game, but when it comes down to it, stand with their employees, even if they're standing for the wrong cause. They have five staff between nurses, techs, supply house that treat new people bad, teetering on bully status. While I was on assignment there three of the nursing staff left and one Anesthesia Tech. None of them had anything nice to say about Banner or the Heart Hospital. They have one Cardiac surgeon who is allowed to swear at the new staff. Completely ridiculous working conditions. It's no wonder they need staff. 06/13/2016 Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of Tempe. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I found my own housing.
- I worked in the CVICU department(s) in the hospital. The hospital was nice and the staff were very friendly. I mostly was given very stable patients. Usually they were about to transfer to the step down unit. They only give critical patients and their OR patients to core staff. They will float you pretty much anywhere (I was a sitter for a suicide patient one day on a med-surg floor). 06/01/2016 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was District at Mountain Vista. Housing was located in city of Mesa. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Very nice staff at this apartment complex. The neighbors have been quiet. It is further out from Phoenix and the population tends to be older individuals (hot spot for retirement communities). Nice pool. OK fitness center but very few use it so you never have to wait on a treadmill or weight machine. Never had an issue with parking. They do not offer furnished apartments and you have to go through a separate company if you want less than a 6 month lease (my company supplied it so I did not have an issue with those things).
