- I worked in the med surg department(s) in the hospital. I love Boston so I came here, staff was insanely nice and helpful, the hospital is super outdated which surprised me and the ratios are more than I was used to (up to 7 on nights), but overall I was really supported and learned a lot! 09/26/2016 Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was took the stipend. Housing was located in city of n/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I took the stipend bc my company's housing was outside the city, I found rooms off of craigslist, it's kind of hard to find sublets in Boston so I had to move a few times, but it all worked out fine.
- I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. This was easily the worst ED I've ever worked, to my dismay. It's affiliated with the Harvard School of Medicine, so there's some expectation of quality. I couldn't imagine being a patient here, though. Maybe it's my distrust of their nurse-to-patient ratios, regardless of patient acuity. 6:1 with 2 ICU patients is unacceptable. 9:1 because your staff drops at 2300 is unacceptable. Much of the staff was unhappy, too, but they're unfamiliar with anything else, so they accept it. I would NEVER return here. The pay was poor also -- the worst in the area, actually. And travelers aren't allowed to work in the trauma/"high acuity" area -- but you'll see plenty of high acuity (and be insanely unsupported!) in the rest of the ED. 03/31/2016 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was (did my own). Housing was located in city of Boston. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I took the housing stipend and found my own place. Renting in Boston is insane, so many people will rent outside of town and commute in, which is equally insane.
- I worked in the tele department(s) in the hospital. I really enjoyed working at Beth Israel. The manager treated travelers like staff. I felt very supported by manager and night educator was there with any questions. It was my favorite assignment. 04/29/2008 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Charles River. Housing was located in city of boston. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the Out patient oncology clinic and had a wonderful experience with the staff and the city. As far as the food...there were lots of places to eat within moments of the building. I would definitly recommend this unit to anyone who is certified in chemo and wants to work with great people! My housing was about 20 miles from the hospital at Normandy Farms RV Park in Foxboro, MA. I would rate it a 5. I travel in a 5th wheel and so had to be creative with the housing. The only bad thing was that there were no Camping facilities nearer but that is to be expected in a big city like Boston. I used the T-rail and subway to get to work which was a new experience for me and I did not have to worry about the parking or driving situation.
