- I worked in the EC department(s) in the hospital. These nurses are hateful and unhelpful. They have created a dangerous environment for pts where it is not likely that anyone can catch something that is bad for your patients. They put chest pain pts in rooms without monitors. They expect you to have 1 on 1 pts and still have ur other 3 critical patients. The staff is very clickish and if you don't fit in they put u in dangerous situations. These people will sit there and watch a patient die and won't do anything. This is the hospital where I saw actual medical personnel that did not care about pt outcome. They just want to get paid. I hate it for this area due to this being the only facility for about 5 counties. If you want your license don't go here cause these are court cases waiting for the right person to look at it. Nope I'm wrong this hospital rarely goes to court they just pay the family like money replaces the life and limb they took providing the worst care imaginable. 12/04/2016 Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/a. Housing was located in city of Albany. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. Do not work the evening shift..staff is very manipulative. Also they try to make you take your lunch 2 hrs into a 10 hr shift so you can be stuck I. A room with no break for 8 hrs. 04/29/2015 Housing was approximately .5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Ashley Riverside. Housing was located in city of Albany. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. There really is no 'safe' housing in this town. High crime rate. Decent apartments..but bug issues
- I worked in the Operating Room department(s) in the hospital. The OR manager was absent from most decisions involving the OR. The night manager was VERY anti-traveler. I was on the orthopedic team, which had a semi-retarded charge nurse. There is absolutely no management support of staff, and some doctors are allowed to habitually abuse staff. Some days I was forced to work 10 hours straight and then take call, other days I did one case and then sat for hours in the lounge. The OR staff revolves around the lounge here. I was also subjected to a call shift where I worked for like 16 hours straight with no breaks and minimal help.
Orientation was a cruel joke, the only parking was on the roof of the garage in 100 degree heat, or an quarter mile away. I would not recommend this hospital to anyone but that guy Bear Grylls (Man VS Wild on the discovery channel), who is willing to try to survive any life threatening situation. 04/20/2008 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Gardens. Housing was located in city of Albany. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. The apartment was really nice and overlooked a nice pond. Overall it was spacious and everything worked rather well. Managers of the apartment complex charged me for a lost key that I returned, and charged for a cleaning that the apartment did not need. Not a child friendly complex.
- I worked in the OPERATING ROOM department(s) in the hospital. IF YOU VALUE YOUR NURSING LICENSE, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL. THE O.R. IS HORRIBLE. IT IS FILTHY AND THE MANAGEMENT IS CUT THROAT. THE NURSE WHO IS THE EVENING CHARGE HATE TRAVELERS AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO SET YOU UP TO GET IN TROUBLE.
I CAN'T BELIEVE JCHAO HASN'T SHUT THIS O.R. DOWN!
THEY WILL ENTICE YOU WITH ALITTLE ABOVE PAY RATE, BUT DON'T LET THIS FOOL YOU! 05/30/2007 The name of the housing complex was TOOK THE HOUSING SUBSIDY. Housing was located in city of ALBANY. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1.
