  • I worked in the 3 Medical/ACE department(s) in the hospital. 10/21/2016
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was I found my own. Housing was located in city of Eugene. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I worked in ICU 8/2016 and staff are nice, doctors really nice. Sometimes workload is stressful but manageable. Staff is helpful. I floated about 1-2x/month. Parking towards the end was shuttling from across the street. Cons: MEDITECH! I would however recommend this place. 10/18/2016
  • Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was craigslist. Housing was located in city of Baltimore. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Large ER, every room but the trauma bays were private rooms. Cafeteria opened early morning for night shift lunch breaks. Transfers to admitted units easy and efficient. Paramedics also worked in the dept and were skilled with IV starts and tele transfers which assisted the RN to maintain patient care instead of patient transports. 05/17/2016
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Na. Housing was located in city of Eugene . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Be careful if you place you bike out on a bike rack, a lot of bicycle theft in that area.
  • I worked in the ICU/PCU department(s) in the hospital. Worked night shift 12 hours. Unit is a combination ICU/PCU with 16 beds. 80 beds total. Usually 2-4 ICU patients and the rest are PCU. Acuity is not very high. BIG alcoholism problem in the community. Staff is wonderful and treat you as their own. Charge nurse is always free and very helpful. Epic build is extremely user friendly. Manager is fabulous, very supportive and involved in unit. Manager completes schedule and accommodated all requests. Parking is free and directly outside of hospital. Cafeteria is closed at night. Area is beautiful, green, surrounded by mountains. If you don't mind less acute critical care, this hospital is great. 11/08/2015
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Northpoint at Creek Side. Housing was located in city of Tacoma. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Old apartment complex, small units, multiple small items needed to be fixed. Maintenance staff was awesome and attended to requests within the day, or immediately if they were standing in the office. Dog friendly. Tacoma is a fun area surrounded by great views with lots of restaurants, good grocery stores, quick access to hiking. Point Defiance park is gorgeous!
  • I worked in the L department(s) in the hospital. I was at Saint Francis in 2013 and again in 2015 the staff and management are very supportive and appreciative of their travelers. I never felt dumped on nor unsafe. If the opportunity arises I will return. 10/16/2015
  • Housing was approximately na mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was na. Housing was located in city of na. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Did not utilize housing, staid with family members.
  • I worked in the Inpatient Rehab department(s) in the hospital. Great floor. Excellent PT/OT, good mix of nurses experienced/ new grads, nice Doctors. Lived in Portland wouldn't recommend the long commute. Salem is the capital, but they didn't have too much exciting places for a single gal. The few times I floated to med/surg the RN's weren't as helpful/friendly as on Inpatient rehab. 08/12/2015
  • Housing was approximately 45 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was craigslist. Housing was located in city of Portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. .
  • I worked in the orientation department(s) in the hospital. I drove 800 miles holiday week to this facility, next day they cancelled my contract, stating "clinical skills not adequate', when I never had clinical contact. They said I asked a question during my 1.5 hours of Meditech training. It was clearly a case of discrimination, or that the budget changed in the facility since they were being taken over by Catholic Health Initiatives. So they apparently trumped up false charges against me. The agency was Focus Staff and they paid me fairly and got me home. It was very stressful, and the agency should have sued them. 06/03/2015
  • Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of newton. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Apartment was on third floor, no elevator, mostly kids living in the complex, parking inadequate.
  • I worked in the ICU, DOU, ER department(s) in the hospital. Everyone is very nice to work with! The staff appreciate the help travelers provide! 05/07/2015
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was my friends house. Housing was located in city of Castro Valley. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I stayed at my friends house but the recruiter will help you find housing or provide it for you. I like finding my own place to stay.
  • I worked in the med/surg department(s) in the hospital. RUN!!!! they never gave me a chance, attacked my clinical skills when i had not even done a shift, this place discriminates big time!!!!!! 12/24/2014
  • Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of Newton. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I had to find my own housing because the motels are so expensive here., the agency couldn't find anything either.
  • I worked in the STC5 med/surg department(s) in the hospital. this is a new unit staffed with 96% travelers. 5 of us started the same day 10/22/2007
  • 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 3. I did not utilize the housing
  • I worked in the Operating room department(s) in the hospital. They have not used travelers in a long time, so they have some catching up to do. I did not have an orientation, unless you count one day. I was OK with that, but still did not have all the information I needed to do my job, like computer access and where things are. Paper charting. The layout of the OR is very confusing and not user friendly.Not enough room for there equipment. Very small OR rooms, doctors seem nice enough with the standard tempermental surgeons. Staff is nice, the parking is non-existing. They do NOT allow travelers to park on site! But even if you did its more than 5$ a day. I take the bus and that is going to be an issue whent that stops for the summer. Its a college town, nice staff to work with, manager during day is something to be desired. Evening charge is a great! Willing to work with my schedule change to accomidate bus schedule. Only three weeks here, so bound to improve. Off shift parking is awfull, day shift, not really an issue. They are building a new hospital next year. 05/22/2007
  • Housing was approximately 3.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Boulders on the River. Housing was located in city of Eugen. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. The street layout is very confusing. Very difficult to navigate.I recently purchased a Garmin, and that has been a life saver here. The apt is nice,security gate after 10pm, No microwave and the W/D is out on the deck in the storage closet! but at least there is one!! haha. Close to shopping,clean and good size one bedroom. Fire place. Parking is limited to visitors, assigned parking to renters. Pool, hot tube and work out room. Have not been to any yet, but am sure they are nice.
