  • I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. Staff nurses are mostly new grads who do not have a clue. 'Aids' hide or play on the computer; they don't do vital signs, answer call lights or get patients water; they're not even CNA's. The Scottish hospitalist is the worst doctor I ever worked with. Housing is ridiculously expensive and dismal. Area is overrun with meth heads who steal anything that's not locked down and beg at every street corner. Never going back. 08/08/2015
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was vrbo. Housing was located in city of Eureka. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1.
  • I worked in the NICU, OB, PCU, department(s) in the hospital. Warning: I am writing this to warn other nurses! DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL!my car was stolen in the first 3 weeks. They tried to get me to work in a positon I wasn't trained for. There were only about 3-4 nurses who knew what they were doing in the OB/NICU. They are so busy stabbing each other in the back they don't have time for orientation.The young nurses would actually push me physically out of the way because they thought they could do it faster. From the head nurse on down their knowledge of patient care was frightening. The saying "nurses eat their young (and old) was started at this hospital. The one oasis in this hospital was the 2ond floor ortho/peds. All the nurses on that unit said the exact same things I am saying. I have worked on staff at SFGH for 15 years and Kaiser for 7 and 8 other hospitals as a traveler. I have never experienced anything like this hospital. This hospital is a joke and I foresee it being closed down in the next few years. Already in this small town of Eureka the inhabitants would rather go to the other Welfare hospital in the area then risk having a baby at this one. 03/09/2014
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was none. Housing was located in city of Eureka. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. Housing is either in a motel or find an apt. I found the perfect housing through.Private rental of furnished 1 bedroom. 1200/month covers everything including Wifi....but don't take a contract at this hospital no matter how much your hurting for a job.
  • I worked in the M/S department(s) in the hospital. Once you were there awhile most of the staff warmed up to you and some became incredibally friendly. (there are always a few bad apples though). The hospital itself was old and had old equipment. I was always busy and often felt too busy...but once in awhile we had time to kick back and relax. Some techs were GREAT and others were exceptionally good at hiding. The patient population had a higher than average drug abuse problem and it seemed like a lot had medicinal marijuana in their med profiles. You couldn't beat the area for outdoor activities...a mix of Redwoods and Pacific Coastlines! Hiking trails galore that were DOG friendly! i would go again if i could work in the ICU rather than M/S. 04/07/2008
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was can't remember. Housing was located in city of Eureka. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. 2 bed/2 bath fully furnished townhouse. only downside was no w/d in unit. but the housing complex was small and just a short walk to the laundry house. i loved it.
  • I worked on the rehab unit which is in a building 1/2 mile from the main hospital campus. They have the best teamwork I have ever experienced. I floated to M/S at the main campus several times and it was tough duty. Not well organized and not a lot of support from the regular staff. The people here are very friendly, the area is beautiful and the weather is usually great. I have extended my original contract twice.
  • I worked in the Rehab department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was privately owned. Housing was located in city of Eureka. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I am in a 3 year old 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath townhouse with a garage and washer and dryer. Great place but no linens or kitchen equipment provided. The agency leases these units year round for travelers. It is on a busy street so there is a lot of traffic noise
