  • I worked in the CVICU department(s) in the hospital. This was an awful travel assignment. First off as a traveler you are at their mercy and they float you all over the hospital. I worked more on the floor than in the ICU. On the floor ICU nurses were only supposed to be 1:4, however they would attempt to give you 5 or 6 and if you refused you became public enemy number one. Then they set up little make shift ICU pods in the same day surgery area and ED. Those are staffed with two RNs, to get meds for the ED pod you have to leave the unit and walk over to the ED hence leaving one nurse responsible for watching 5 ICU patients. The pods are literally just spaces separated by curtains. I honestly can not believe the joint commission would allow such a place to operate like that. MRSA and flu patients would be put in this room separated by a curtain (not even sure if that is allowed). The charting system (Meditech) sucks and isn't nurse friendly. The role of the charge nurse is ridiculous. They do not have an assignment and they do not help. Many times me and the other travelers were tripled while they watched videos on Youtube. Also in my orientation session the CNO blamed their low patient satisfaction scores on travelers, but from my experience the travelers were the nicest ones to other staff and the patients. I would never recommend this hospital to anyone, it was a headache of an assignment and super stressful. I hated my job for 3 months and couldn't wait to leave. Also Vin and Michelle the unit directors and managers are dishonest. One last thing the doctors here are rude and look down on the nurses. The CT surgeons were ok, but the other doctors would be so rude to the nurses and be mad if they were paged. On more than one occasion I had to call a rapid response on a patient just to have a doctor come give me orders and look at the patient, because the doctors don't always page back or would tell me to figure it out. The only good thing about this assignment was the fabulous housing complex I lived in and the fact I lived on the beach. 09/26/2017

  • I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. Not located in the best neighborhood. Many of the travelers did not like this hospital. It is a typical HCA Florida style work you to damn death. But I have done 2 assignments here and extended on the last. The staff are very welcoming and team work on day shift is phenomenal. The administration does listen to the staff and are striving to make improvements and I could see the improvements from the previous year. Still it is Florida. Pay is low and I augmented mine by obtaining my own housing and pocketing left over stipend. Nice area for kayaking and biking 08/03/2015
