  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. One of the worst assignments I have had. The hospital is old located in the worst part of town. Computer system is old charting is confusing as you do both paper and computer. Charge nurse is lazy does not offer any help. Shows favoritism has travel nurse working at all times while staff nurses goes out to smoke any play games and browse the internet. Staff nurses are rude and unfriendly guess that's why they are so short staffed. Agency refuses to listen to your concerns when your license is on the line. Would never recommend any travel nurse to go here. 01/11/2017
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Apt Complex. Housing was located in city of Bakersfield. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Housing was secure but you could not ignore what was going on outside with the gun violence and gangs.
  • I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. Worst hospital I have ever worked in. Hospital is in the ghetto section of Bakersfield. Not much full time staff not much ancillary help. Travel nurses are treated with disrespect given the hardest patients while staff nurses are on the internet or on their phone playing games. No break no lunch period is given. One of the worst places I have worked would never recommend to any other nurses. 11/18/2016

  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Travel nurses!!! Be aware of Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield CA. Staff nurses are rude unfriendly unwelcoming patients are warm and friendly. Wish I had known all this before I did my assignment there. They need to work by themselves without any outside help. You will be working from 7am-7:30pm. No one even offers help assignments are distributed unfairly. You will lose your ER skills as a simple motor vehicle accident is classified as Trauma??? Wish I had known about this site before I went there. They will trap you into a 26 weeks contract that you will regret. Please do your research. 10/14/2016

  • Housing was approximately 10 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 2. The nursing staff needs to retrained. I've seen a more unprofessional set of nurses. They are loud and obnoxious and very disrespectful to patients. I have never met the Nurse Manager the whole time I was there. The schedule is revised about 7 times a month so you have to keep up with that. The hospital is located in ghetto part if the city. You're afraid to even walk in the parking lot to and from your car because there is always some unknown person asking for a quarter. Assignments are distributed unfairly. Travel nurses gets the worst assignment. While you are working there are groups of nurses including the charge nurse paying games on their phones. Don't count on getting a lunch break and I was told this is the norm. They will give you assignments that you have never done before and no regards to your license. To sum up its seems like everybody does what they want to do with no supervision. Travel Nurses this is not a facility you would want to work in.
