  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. The hospital was jumping through hoops for level 2 trauma certification and switching over to Epic charting. Overall, a very hectic time to be there. They have since been awarded level 2 trauma certification. Anything even remotely close to being traumatic was called. Much favoritism showed towards certain staff members. I have never worked in a place where I felt so blatantly ignored whilst specifically addressing staff members... it is like they either don't hear you or just don't give a hoot. Some staff was wonderful and kind. Others were rather serpentine. Techs extremely helpful when available. Transport staff much appreciated - just write on the patient passport for them to hook them back up to vital sign machines or you will be unpleasantly surprised when you return. Speaking of that, vital signs do not cross over into the Epic charting. Very time consuming and EXTREMELY inconvenient when you are running behind. LOTS of very sick, high acuity patients. It is unclear to me why the front "pod" with both code rooms also has three psych rooms. Often times this is run by one single nurse. 6 patient at any capacity in this facility is too many. They have a brand new psychiatric lock down unit with padded rooms which they don't even utilize r/t staffing problem while 6 1:1 patient are in rooms and lining the halls of the ER at times. There is no staff restroom anywhere near the nurses station. You hold your pee or go on a wild goose chase to the back. Lunch breaks do not happen often at all. Little support from charge staff. Ratio is typically 1:4 or 1:5 if you have a hallway patient. The newly constructed/renovated rooms are lovely. Allergy sufferers, beware. This is a hot-spot for environmental allergens. My entire family, including the dog, suffered the entire time. There were also nice days - don't get me wrong, but the whole unit could be run more smoothly with a few changes. 10/20/2017
  • Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Hotel. Housing was located in city of Harrisburg. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Construction/traffic is TERRIBLE in this town.
  • I worked in the Ed department(s) in the hospital. Only good thing I can say is the area is close to dc, Baltimore, Philly, Hershey, Lancaster, and Gettysburg. Cheapest and bonuses friendly epic version they could get. Hourly Neuro checks on stubbed toes and every other minor "trauma" 08/25/2017
  • Housing was approximately 22 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of East Berlin . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Found on airbnb. Curvy country roads but very peaceful temporary home
  • I worked in the SICU department(s) in the hospital. Contract was a total bait and switch. Contracted for the SICU and continuously floated to the CVU stepdown unit every shift. Multiple admissions and discharges on the stepdown unit within the same day. Ratio as high as 5:1. I spent 4 weeks doing this and left after informing the hospital and travel company that my contract was not as a floating stepdown nurse. 06/12/2017
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Budget Inn. Housing was located in city of Camp Hill. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. N/A
