- I worked in the Medical/Surgical Telemetry department(s) in the hospital. I do not recommend this hospital to any traveler. It is nicknamed "Hell Ray" for a reason. Thebfloor is extremely busy AND heavy. A normal patient load for me was 7:1 or 8:1. The PCA's do not help as much as they should and you have to take your own vitals- at the beginning and end of shift. It is crazy. I was floated every other shift until my recruiter spoke to the manager. (The other floors I floated on were just as busy and they are not nice to travelers.) I didn't even meet the manager until the end of my contract. Charge nurses are very unhelpful- most of them sit in the office and don't help even though the staff is drowning. The only shift I was happy with was when I floated to psych- and I couldn't even believe hey floated me there! I do not recommend this hospital to anyone- traveler or patient. 12/14/2016 Housing was approximately 00 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was not given. Housing was located in city of Away from hospital. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I found my own housing

- I worked in the Medical Telemetry department(s) in the hospital. There are only a few vital sign machines so staff guard them, hide them, write their name on them to claim them. Staff focused on getting their work done not helping other staff or working together as a team. 05/23/2015 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital.
