  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Small but very busy hospital. Patient population was mainly homeless. Saw a lot of alcohol and meth abuse. A lot of Spanish speaking only patients. The hospital itself is old and dirty. A lot of equipment you need was broken or missing. They wouldn't stock the ED with butterflies for straight sticks so you either would have to start another IV to get blood or call the lab (and wait forever). Break room is the size of a closet. Morale was low. I came in while they were switching directors. The staff did not offer help and dumped on the travelers. Many left during my assignment there and they hired more travelers (who were more helpful). The newest director was nice and is trying to turn the ED around. The staff was lazy. Consistently late. Charge nurses were never there but out socializing in the break room. Techs at the desk were often missing too and found myself doing their job as well. The doctors were iffy. Would take them 2-3 hours before they would see a new patient. Had to be the buffer a lot between patients and doctors. Orientation involved a very rushed Epic class. You could tell the instructor did not want to be there. Took more breaks than teaching the class. Luckily I already had Epic training. They tried to give you 2 shifts orientation in the department which was nice, but spent the first day trying to get access to everything. The first day, the director was a half hour late and didn't acknowledge it. I was not impressed with this hospital. The staff are unprofessional which really affects the work flow. The only nice thing is that it is 10 minutes from downtown Disney and Disneyland. 06/09/2016
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Fairfield Inn. Housing was located in city of Buena Park. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Stayed at Fairfield Inn the few days I was up in Anaheim. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Room had microwave and mini fridge. It did the job.
