  • I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. Stay as far away from this ER as possible. No limit on patient load, it just depends on how many people come into the door at the time.....had as many as 14-16 Emergency room patients at one time....chest pain, patients going to the OR....more than 1 patient needing blood, etc. An accident waiting to happen. No one to relieve you for a break, nurses just left for an hour.....I had only 1 lunch break in the entire 13 weeks I was there as I refused to leave my patients without care. You had to mix your own antibiotics, no computerized system other than labs....no time clock...you were paid according to scheduled hours and not hours actually worked. Any trauma or critical care patients after 11pm were picked up by ER staff according to whose turn it was so that you had to come from another area in the ER where you couldn't see what your trauma patient was doing. In the 13 weeks I was there, the printer for the cardiac monitors had no paper in it to print strips and it was never replaced. A total nightmare. If that were the only nursing job left on the planet, I would quit nursing. On the plus side, plenty of overtime.The staff, Doctors and residents were great to work with. 01/18/2008
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Westbury Arms. Housing was located in city of Westbury NY. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. Housing was safe, clean, no problems. I liked the complex. The office managers were wonderfully helpful. And the grounds workers did a great job clearing out the snow and helping people with whatever they needed. Wonderful accommodations
