  • I worked in the Cardo/HospiceThe Nursi department(s) in the hospital. The Nursing on the unit were not friendly. I willnot1868 work there again. 07/29/2017
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Hotel. Housing was located in city of VA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Service was poor.
  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Worst travel assignment by far. The ER is dirty, EVS rarely cleans rooms, the department is completely disorganized, patients are out in rooms and then kicked out and placed in hallway beds/chairs in every crook and cranny, there are patients every where! The local community even hates this hospital but for whatever reason they come. Holding 60 admits, always at max capacity and they still won't divert. The regular staff are unhappy, even one of their assistant nursing directors is a traveler that has to tell you something. They always have call outs, one shift half the staff called out. They put you in trying situations and try to force more patients on you and don't care what the acuity is. Not to mention they charge you $60.00 a month to park in the garage/lots, the area is shady so they highly discourage parking in the neighborhoods. The best thing about this assignment were the days off. 07/18/2016
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Campus Gardens. Housing was located in city of Hyattsville,Md. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Nice place to live, staff were extremely welcoming, appliances new, wood floors, pool.
  • I worked in the ICU float department(s) in the hospital. They repeatedly messed up my schedule and did not even have me on the schedule for an entire week. They then tried to squeeze me in at the end of the week, which I could not do, and then put the responsible on me. 08/27/2013
  • Housing was approximately 9 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Mark Town Square. Housing was located in city of Alexandria. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. Housing was nice
  • I worked in the Main OR department(s) in the hospital. I would NEVER recommend an assignment at this hospital. There is a substantial number of travel RNs at this facility because the permanent staff is the LAZIEST group of people I have ever encountered in my healthcare career. Also, the facility itself is FILTHY. There are HUGE cockroaches walking around inside and outside the building. The parking is ridiculous. I had to pay $60 for a one month parking pass from the 11th of the month to the 30th. It was not prorated and was not for 30 days. At the end of the month I was required to purchase another 30 day pass. I felt financially raped besides there never being any parking spaces for staff that work 11am to 11pm. 08/07/2013
  • Housing was approximately 12.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Town Square. Housing was located in city of Alexandria. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Security gate, but cars wait on the side of the entrance and follow you in. No wifi in the apartment but available in the Business office, sometimes. Fortunately there is a Starbucks across the street from the complex so you can get a coffee and use the internet there, HOWEVER, there are ALOT of questionable persons hanging out there from mid-morning to closing time.
  • I worked in the ICU float pool department(s) in the hospital. I do not recommend this hospital for an assignment. Staffing office is very difficult to work with. They give you a schedule with not input and give you a hard time if you need to make a switch they are also constantly changing your schedule. 06/14/2013
  • Housing was approximately did not use mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was did not use. Housing was located in city of did not use. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. Did not use housing
  • I worked in the cath lab department(s) in the hospital. The hospital has immaculate reputation. But when working in the area (cath lab) was unpleasant, unorganized, uncoordinated and unsafe. Cath lab had management turn over over, 3 times in the 9 months that I was there. They would treat travelers like we where required to be there and would give us 2 late stays a week (after our shift was over). I was scheduled 10 hours a day and I would always leave with in 3 or 4 hours after my shift was over. Staff is treated badly and management has no clue how to manage the doctors, staff and daily schedule. Its really sad, because it has potential. 04/25/2013
  • Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Reserves at Potomic drive. Housing was located in city of Alexandria, VA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing and transportation was great!
  • Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Crystal Square. Housing was located in city of Arlington. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. 12/20/2012
  • Took my own housing. Expensive, but Arlington is amazing! LOVED the complex...pool open in the summer for limited hours. It was directly over a metro line (A MUST) but I did have an hour commute and had to take a bus, as well, to get to work, but the hospital offered a free shuttle to and from the green and red lines from 5am to 11pm monday through friday. Rooftop sundeck to have dinner or wine and watch the airplanes take off and land at Regan airport (which was noisy, but not too bad). Right over about 100 stores underneath the complex. Great security. Parking was only $75/month and I could take an elevator directly to my apartment. It was the best living experience Ive ever had!
  • Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was 100 Luna Park Drive. Housing was located in city of Alexandria. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. 02/05/2012
  • I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. There is a lot of redundant paperwork and many times Nurses had to make copies for other departments, working with CT, X-Ray and Lab can be difficult, many people seemed not to care about patient care, No one to clean up messes except for Nurses, few techs to help out, average N:P ratio 1:6 regardless of condition, hold admit patients for hours, sometimes days, There is a scheduling committee and even though supposed to work every other weekend based on contract work either Fri & Sat or Sun and Mon every weekend. The best thing about the assignment was the days off. 07/06/2008
  • Housing was approximately 13 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Barton's Crossing. Housing was located in city of Alexandria. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing was great but the 13 mile drive usually takes an hour to hour and half. Lot's to do in the area so you will never get bored
  • I worked in the 1C department(s) in the hospital. Been here for a few months. The floor work is easy (nice break from what you might be used to). The anciallry staff has poor attitude. Stats don't get done till sometimes 3 days later! 07/28/2006
