  • I worked in the PICU department(s) in the hospital. PICU very CLIQUISH and stuck up including management.Many have not worked or even gone to school anywhere else and it shows. Lots of favoritism amongst the staff toward travelers as far as getting help. The patients were heavy loads in that they were chronic (mostly neuro or MRCP)2:1 with q 1hr neuro checks in isolation,q2-4hr meds and q2-4hr lab sticks. The residents were allowed to run rampant and changed orders frequently without notification. No aides. Frequent transfers/admits. Disorganized-to get meds you had to swipe into med room, swipe into computer,log into pyxis,look for RN outside of med room to verify with you in med room,get med,dress in isolation,log into pt computer and verify you are giving med. Meanwhile your other pt's call light goes on. Yes,it is busy but do-able-IF staff helps. So make sure you tell them their unit is the greatest,bring baked goods every shift and say you LOVE trached neuro pts with loose stools.Or they will let you drown with a smile on their faces! No red bags in the room. You wrap blood and poop in a chux and take it down the hall to dirty utility. Ewww. I actually ENJOYED FLOATING to other units to GET AWAY FROM PICU. CVICU/NICU/Stepdown were better organized and MUCH nicer people. Each unit has a different layout and way of obtaining meds!! Charting is APEX(a customized form of EPIC,also can be different per unit!kind of a pain)Pay is great,but do not choose PICU. Parking is $200mo with a permit $30 day or free at night. Food expensive and meh.Bring own at night. (I'm describing Mission Bay Benioff not Oakland Benioff) 10/12/2016
  • Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was got my own. Housing was located in city of Burlingame. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Take the housing stipend and find your own or AirBnb. Stay in the city or on the peninsula side. Going over bridges $$ and has traffic nightmares.
