- I worked in the 5E department(s) in the hospital. Worst hospital I have ever worked at in six years of traveling. House supervisor on days is extremely rude. My company refused to staff them anymore do to there refusal to honor contracts. Every travel I met there couldn't wait for the contract to be over. I would avoid this hospital at all cost. 05/10/2017 Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Privae rental vie airbnb. Housing was located in city of Corpus Cristy. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I do house via airbnb.
- I worked in the CCU/ ICU department(s) in the hospital. Parking is far. Cafeteria is too far away to eat there, so I brought my own food everyday. They use the "newer" meditech. Not great, but could be worse. This was supposed to be a cardiac/ ms ICU. It was mostly MS. They are behind the times here and still do a lot of written orders. I was told "that's just how we do things here" many times when I questioned antiquated processes. People are mostly nice, but staff morale was low. You'll take pretty much any patient. For the most part, they weren't super sick. Only some doctors were open to input from the nurses. I was thrown under the bus in a couple of unsafe situations trying to be an advocate for my patients. The director is trying to manage 4 units which was WAY too much and the manager is available, but unfortunately has to take an patient assignment almost everyday. Beautiful location. Could've been worse. Could've been better. 01/19/2017 Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Vacation Rental. Housing was located in city of Padre Island. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I lived out on the island. Older vacation rental. Pet friendly. Location was AMAZING!! Beach was super close and water was right outside.
- I worked in the Med-Surg department(s) in the hospital. I worked on a medical-surgical unit and also floated to several other units throughout this hospital. The first issue I need to start off with is the extreme lack of safety I have felt for the patients, my license, and myself. To say this in a professional way (and to not identify myself) there have been multiple incidents I have witnessed in which extensive harm could have been caused to patients. I will not be specific with these incidents because, again, I want to leave this review in a professional manner. At one point, I was considering ending my contract due to the major safety issues (I am not a new travel nurse). I addressed these major incidents using my chain of command. In addition to the patient safety issues, I also had issues with the equipment throughout the entire hospital. To start, my unit was majorly lacking vital sign equipment. Every 2 out of 3 SCD pumps did not work. The patient's beds do not have bed alarms built into them- chair alarms are used on the beds, however there are not enough alarms for all of the patients. Fall risk precautions are not at all taken seriously at this hospital. DVT prophylaxis is also not taken seriously at this hospital. I have had to encourage other nurses to write incident reports on serious incidents that have come to my attention- nurses rarely write incident reports on serious incidents. This is by far the most inefficient hospital I have ever worked at. From equipment not functioning properly, to Pharmacy not sending meds, to priorities being placed on less important issues (such as filled out white boards in patient rooms, when other major issues are not addressed#. The beds are very old with brakes that do not work #when you pull a patient up in bed with a co-worker, often times the bed moves with you, causing you to strain your back#. The computers on wheels are very often malfunctioning #I would estimate they malfunction 50-75% of the time). This hospital also lacks cleanliness. 75% of the time I go to a public bathroom in this hospital- there is urine or feces on the toilet, trash on the floors, and grime on the walls and floor. Hand sanitizer stations are chronically empty. Sharps containers are chronically overflowing. I went into this contract every day with the best attitude I could, however I always seemed to feel drained and defeated. 01/09/2017 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Private housing. Housing was located in city of Corpus Christi. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. N/A
