  • I worked in the cardiac telemetry department(s) in the hospital. Columbia Presbyterian looks good on a resume, highly recommended for a travel assignment. Avoid assignments at 6 Garden South and 7 Garden South, which are med-surg units and guaranteed high patient ratios. Drawback working here is that they require travelers to work one more shift per month than their own staff. That is not cool. 03/11/2015
  • Housing was approximately 1.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was none, because I arranged my own housing. Housing was located in city of New York. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the ICU float department(s) in the hospital. I am absolutely appalled that this is a "top hospital". I worked in the ICU float department, you get one day of orientation on one unit. Every unit has different standards, but no one can tell you what they are. No written protocols. It's very much a "culture of blame" here - everyone is against each other rather than being a team. It is nurse vs nurse, MD vs nurse, pharmacy vs nurse, etc. Unsafe work environment. Expect to turn patients on your own because even if you ask for help people will actually say no even if they are not busy. Staff will barely take the time of day to tell you med room and bathroom codes, and good luck finding those places yourself. Very hostile work environment. Assistants are extremely rude. Outdated equipment, really who has needle adapter IV tubing still? Wasn't that a workplace safety goal 20 years ago? Very dirty, I thought I came from a poor county hospital but Columbia really blew it out of the water. I can't wait until my assignment is over. 09/12/2014
  • Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of n/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I did not take the agency housing, stayed with a friend
  • I worked in the CTICU department(s) in the hospital. When it comes to this hospital - just don't. The hospital is dirty, management is rude and the nurses are unwelcoming. I honestly don't know how this hospital is ranked because I don't know how patients make it out alive. It is a truly scary institution!!! 08/22/2014
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Parc 77. Housing was located in city of New York. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
  • I worked in the MS Float department(s) in the hospital. Patient load assignment was always being protested. Staff (not only nursing) complained about how short they were. Although I never had more than 7 patients on the day shift. Most of the nurses were very helpful and most of the floors that had PCDs were organized and the staff worked as a team. The floors without PCDs are unorganized in which I didn't receive a break and left late. I was fired because I brought this up. Nursing. OfficeManagers believe, "Everyone wants to work there." If you complain they will just replace you with someone who works for peanuts. Of course I am bringing this to the Labor Board. Some staff believe because you are a float that you are not knowledgeable about nursing practices and treat you as such. I met two other Travelers that were not happy with the set up. One quit and the other completed his assignment. 06/07/2014

  • I worked in the icu float department(s) in the hospital. every icu under staffed. majority of staff are abrasive, poor manners, rude. They have difficulty accomodating travel nurses and impatient. Over worked and frequent concerns regarding patient safety. Nurses are competent and hardworking, but severely underapprecieated and disrespected for the amount of work they contribute to the success of this major medical center. Counting the days until assignment is over. 08/11/2012
