- I worked in the Mother-baby unit department(s) in the hospital. I worked mom-baby unit and we had to take care of four couplets, which is 4 moms plus 4 babies (8 total), no nursing assistant. Total care, and the travelers were assigned the most difficult patients with triple antibiotics, blood infusions, and patients on magnesium sulfate post delivery with pre-eclampsia and on EVERY 2 hr vital signs and q 2 hr I&O. Infants and moms with blood sugars, everything you can name and it didn't matter how acute the patients are, you still are responsible for EVERYTHING! HORRIBLE and DANGEROUS! Don't ever go there. 09/18/2017 The name of the housing complex was 8 Pelitere drive. Housing was located in city of San Jose . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. The ONLY positive about this contract was the housing. Working conditions were terrible.
- I worked in the Med-Surg Tele department(s) in the hospital. I was told by management themselves, "We've been told this is one of the hardest places to work. If you can make it here on 6th floor in this hospital, you can make it anywhere." Some days were horrendous, with too many higher acuity patients and no help from anyone. Some days were pure fun. The aids do nothing, and everyone says it. Why they don't change that is beyond me. The area is amazing, though, so it's worth the stress. 01/20/2014 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was 2126 Elmont Ave. Housing was located in city of San Jose. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I lived in the The Woods, a very large apartment complex a short distance from everything I could possibly need. It's very nice, quiet, and safe with several pools, fitness centers and a business center with free wifi.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Well, I was warned so I have no one for this experience. The ratings pretty much sum up what this facility has to offer. No one was happy but a few staff members were very willing to help. My biggest problem was the lack of any formal visiting hours and no consistency. Family members very reluctant to comply but "limitations" weren't enforced anyway. Visitors present at all hours and phone calls were never screened. HIPAA would frown on this! 03/30/2007 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Northpark- The Laurels. Housing was located in city of San Jose. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
