- I worked in the Operating Room department(s) in the hospital. Staff is very friendly but very inconsiderate and lazy. They do not relieve you on time, they do not clean up after themselves, most do not offer any breaks. Management/front desk is HORRIBLE with communication. They do not let you know if you have no relief. The hospital is very nice, but has a very complex layout, making it hard to navigate. Parking is off sight and terrible. Multiple places to eat in the hospital. Cafe food is excellent for being a hospital. Most of the surgeons are very condescending and rude. Anesthesia head doctor is incredibly rude and arrogant. Lots of new nurses with no experience. Book too many cases with unrealistic time frames. 07/12/2017 Housing was approximately 25.2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was local traveler. Housing was located in city of Pittsburgh. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I do local travel in the Pittsburgh area from home
- I worked in the PICU department(s) in the hospital. The staff treated me with great respect and support, gladly answerein any questions. Most of the time assignments were approprieat, occ unsafe. Travelers tend to be put in the IICU or 7ICU which deals with the chronic, vent dependent kids. That can get frustrating, but they willingly will put you in the PICU when asked with respect. I extended my contract here for the first time in twelve yeats of traveling. Be nice and willing to jump in as part of the team and it is a great place to work. 09/24/2006 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Alcoma on the Green. Housing was located in city of Penn Hills. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Beautiful housing, pet friendly. Lots of grounds to walk your dog. City buses come into the complex. Close to shopping, recreation, movies, interstates. They readily fix anything needing fixed.
- childrens hospital is a very well known hospital. however travel nurses are treated like dirt and the nurses are rude and give the travel nurses. i cant say the whole hospital is this way but the peds oncology is. a person should not have to feel uncomfortable in there work setting for trying to do a good job. i strongly advise any traveler to think twice before taking an assignment in pittsburgh. housing in the entire area is terrible and run down. parking anywhere is a problem. and the hills are terrible in bad weather. I worked in the oncology department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was alcoma on the green. Housing was located in city of penn hills. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. ok housing. no elavator. drug dealers were evicted from next door to us. how ever it is quiet. people are nice in the buiding, compared to the rest of the areas housing it is the nicer part, penn hills is a nice town and easy obtainable.
