- I worked in the ms/tele/surgical department(s) in the hospital. Majority of the staff was wonderful and willing to help. Very accepting of travelers. Ratio was usually 1:6. Gastonia isn't a horrible place to stay, most chain restaurants/shopping available. 11/21/2017 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was hotel. Housing was located in city of Gastonia. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Used hotels to stay during contract.
- I worked in the Critical Care Units department(s) in the hospital. Most nurses are friendly but the ones that aren't have lots of pull and can wreck your assignment here. 2 ICU travelers were placed on step down unit for most of their shifts as some sort of punishment. One traveler refused to work in the ED because they didn't feel comfortable and ended up suspended. You are pulled from unit to unit so frequently that is hard to build relationships with units. There are only a handful of bad people but its just enough. Lots of good people though. 05/05/2017 Housing was approximately .5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Fairfield Inn. Housing was located in city of gastonia . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the Med surg/oncology/renal department(s) in the hospital. This assignment was awful do not take an assignment here! The pay is good but the assignment is dangerous. I had 8 pts almost every night with no secreatary. The nurse manager is horrific and has no leadership about herself what so ever. 04/23/2017 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Best western . Housing was located in city of Gastonia . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Did my own housing at the best western down the street from the hospital. Got a $69 rate
- I worked in the ICU Float department(s) in the hospital. I'm an ICU RN, and was in one of the ICU's only once during my assignment. I was floated to all the step down and telemetry units, taking unfair assignments. I always got the first admissions, even if other nurses had 2 or 3 patients and they would have 2 or 3 empty beds assigned to them. I would get up to 5 patients, transfer 2 off the floor, then get 2 admissions (usually from the ER). Staff wasn't very helpful with helping. It was similar to any nursing job, it just depended on who you worked with. The nursing techs were mostly 'MIA' unless it was Vital Sign time. Not very helpful. The patient demographics were high acuity, the nurse/patient ratio was 1:5. The staff treated travelers okay, but they were very quick to throw them under the bus, especially behind your back. I didn't experience that, but I certainly witnessed it. I couldn't wait for the assignment to be over. It wasn't the worst place I have experienced. But not the best either. 10/06/2016 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Icon on the Greenway. Housing was located in city of Gastonia . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Immaculate, management was friendly and prompt to respond to any requests. Beautiful grounds keeping. Pet friendly. Work out room. Swimming pool, and the complex sponsored some sort of community gathering at least once or twice a month. Quiet and friendly tenants. Grocery stores and restaurants nearby. And a walking/biking trail approximately 5 miles long adjacent to the property. Can go up to three flights of stairs and no elevator.
