- I worked in the L&D department(s) in the hospital. This hospital is behind the times. The doctors consider themselves to be on a separate team from the nurses. Our night shift nursing team was great; we got through the nights when 1 nurse watched all the patients on the floor while a patient was coding, one was in C-section recovery, and another delivering at the same time. But it is not a nice place to work. If you can avoid Greenville, DO NOT go to Greenville. 07/03/2015 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Southgate. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. The buildings are old but they are trying to revamp it. In the year and a half I lived here it has been one issue after another. Within 2 months I had a massive water leak in one of the bathrooms: an inch of water on the floor, everything in the closet had to be removed and washed and dried. And it happened again a few months later. The drains in the kitchen and tub are slow. I've used at least 3 bottles of drano since living here. I have seen cockroaches in every room in the apartment at some point during my stay. Shortly after I moved in the management changed and they decided to make all these 'updates' to the properties; starting with the trees. The removal process took weeks and the lawn area just outside my apartment wasn't cleaned up until about a year after they took down the trees. There were large roots, branches, mud piles and construction materials in the yard for months. Maintenance comes into your apartment without notice. They replaced the doors: which look nicer, but it was while I was sleeping between my night shifts one day. When part of my fence fell during an ice storm they told me that those were going to be replaced soon and never fixed it. It's July and the broken fence is still sitting there. The heat didn't work my first winter and the air conditioner was broken just this month. It was fixed in a day or so but I have no schedule for when the maintenance men can come and I have to sleep during the day. They will not call or notify you in any way.
It's not the safest area, either. A month after I moved in someone was shot and killed on this same street. Someone broke into my car and stole Christmas presents out of the back seat the next month. I was so scared, I thought I was going to have to break my lease and move before I even knew anyone in this town.
Please consider all your options before choosing this place. Sometimes less is not more.
- I forgot name. Apt was across the street from hospital. 08/21/2013 Housing was approximately .03 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was I cannot remember, but was nice. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I worked in the ICU/CCU/CVICU/Stepdown department(s) in the hospital. First,the hospital is isolated 100 miles from Raleigh,NC. The mentality among the nursing staff is that abuse is normal because of no other close by medical facilities if you live in that area.SAD!!! This is a Teaching Hospital where dangerous nurse to extreme high patient ratios are the normal. In the CVICU/CCU, i received an Balloon Pump patient on the vent along with an post heart patient each on multiple cardiac drips,blood transfusions on both patients,frequent 15 min to 30 minute labs,and each with deep sedation drips/paralytic drips. When I verbalized the danger to all of our licenses and not the "norm" to work under duress situations. My work history is Duke-Neuro-Icu, Wake CVICU/CTICU, Johns Hopkins Univ- Organ transplant ICU,MUSC-Trama/Neuro-ICU/Transplant ICU,Jackson Mem Hospital all ICU's/ER. So please believe when i say this experience was not normal. I did enjoy the physicians teaching he nurses also as part of the team.
- Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Waterford Place. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. 06/23/2012 The apartment was the only thing nice about this assignment because it was clean and within walking distance of the hospital.
- I worked in the 2 South-Neuro department(s) in the hospital. Worst travel assignment I ever had. Stat lab orders left undone for over 10 1/2 hours from previous shift. Meds taken from Pyxis and not documented on the MAR. Computerized system with many bugs. NPO orders are not placed in system many times... based on report from previous shift only. Physician errors are common ... to the extent of eye gtts to wrong eye and wrong frequency (q 1 hour versus BID). Hypoglycemic episodes quite more than norm due as residents hesitate to change insulin orders during major diet changes despite being informed of the problem. You can catch a insulin gtt with a 5 patient load here. Patient assignments are based on room location rather than acuity. My take is a floor with many problems and lack of organization which admin has tried to correct by hiring experienced charge nurses to run a floor with travelers, floaters, and new nurses. However, the charge nurses play a put out a fire role rather than admit patients or take patients themselves. 11/20/2007 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Meridian Park. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Secure and clean building.
- I worked in the Neuro/Tele department(s) in the hospital. The floor where I worked was mostly staffed by travelers. I was oriented to charge within a month of starting the assignment and was in charge of a 40 bed unit for most of the days I worked after that. The staff that was regular there was not knowledgeable and patient ratios are dangerous. The unit did not have a regular manager and the one that was there while I was on the assignment got fired shortly after I left. The people were nice enough, but I think the floor needs a complete overhauling. The equipment is old and the radiology department is very slow, even for emergency situations. I would not recommend this floor/hospital for any travel assignment, but it may be different now. The area was very beautiful and there is plenty of activities to do within driving distance. Loved the area, but hated the hospital! 07/03/2007 Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Wimbledon Apartments. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. The complex was nice, but the carpets were very dirty. I don't think they cleaned them between tenants! The complex was in close proximity to shopping, groceries, movie theater, etc.
- I worked in the Cardiac Intermediate Unit department(s) in the hospital. This is a big teaching hospital so you deal with residents and interns on a daily basis. Morale on my unit was excellent, partly due to the system there. Patient ratio was 4:1 but there was a fast turnover rate. Everybody helped everyone and the charge nurses were excellent. The problem with this place is the PBDS 11/14/2006 Housing was approximately 1.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Meridian Park. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Very nice, very quiet, very roomy. Washer and dryer in unit. Outdoor pool, exercise unit. Close to the hospital. Best place I've lived.
- I worked in the neuro/medsurg department(s) in the hospital. The staff on my floor were good about helping each other but not all floors are like that. PBDS is required. 09/24/2006 Housing was approximately 2.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was meridian park. Housing was located in city of Greenville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. washer/dryer included in unit
