  • I worked in the Medical/Neuro ICU department(s) in the hospital. Frequent offers by the CC educator for CEU dinners. Management clueless and plentiful. Staffing done by charge nurses, no central staffing. Travelers float first. Floated twice on a 13 week assignment to MS/Tele. ICU staff is friendly,often pretty, and helpful but gives garbage assignments. Rarely received same assignment twice in block of days. Ex: called in to help, given two fresh admits. Had my assignment ripped out from under me multiple times so patient's could be relocated from one ICU to another mid-shift (then of course received admit.) Uses Alaris IV pumps. 01/20/2015

  • Housing was approximately 6 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was edgewood. Housing was located in city of bakersfield. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the telemetry department(s) in the hospital. It's a small community hospital but the workload is too much. There is no charge nurse, they have a shift leader who also has her own 5 patients. It's more like you're working by yourself because they don't help you most of the time. They usually give the heavy patient workload to the travelers. A lot of isolation patients & it's not unusual to get 3 isolations out of 5 patients. Hard to get a hold of the doctors when you try to call them for orders. Some doctors would make rounds, write a progress note but wouldn't even see the patient in the room or do any assessments. And most of the patients don't speak English at all. 11/30/2006
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was stayed w/ a friend. Housing was located in city of bakersfield. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Charge RN's are on a power trip. They like you to shut up and do your job. A lot of hospital politics. Largely over budget, lots of call off when census are low. Only positive thing I can say is I knew other travelers in L&D who loved their jobs. Stay away from ICU and ER. 08/11/2006
  • Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Breakwater. Housing was located in city of Bakersfield. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. pool, fitness room, pets allowed
