- I worked in the M/S department(s) in the hospital. AWFUL. Only 2 other travelers are there and now I understand why, I missed the reviews apparently. The other traveler was there at the hospital because they personally called her back asking to work because they can't sign on anyone else. On the floor I was on, 13 RNs had just left permanent positions because it was so unbearable.
I got scheduled overtime an extra shift one week, couldn't get ahold of the scheduler because he was always "out of the office" So I worked the extra shift. The manager was pissed and the staffer got in trouble so in retaliation the office called me off 4 shifts in one week so I got NO pay check for that entire week.
The mangers have terrible expectations of travlers, once after an 8 hour shift with 5 M/S patients, I was to be floated back to my home floor. The manager proceeded to call me and tell me I was "expected" to back on the floor after report by 3:15, I didn't need the regulatory 30 mins.
Another manager bullied me after I was told to change a wound vac with no wound RN. I passed the task to the relief, charge RN aware, since I had not done this before. The relief couldn't do it and the supplies weren't available so I passed it to next shift as it was now the end of shift. The manager have a formal meeting and called me negligent and irresponsible. This same manager followed me around the floor on a different occasion, pushing me to get out on time, and yelled at me when she found me not giving report, although the nurse was receiving report from a different nurse already.
The travel staffer liaison also tried to cut my hours short for that same shift, lied to my company saying they had documented proof that I'd left the floor at 12:15, not 1:00. It wasn't until I took pictures of my computer charting of me giving medications at 12:30, did they finally back down from their lie and pay me a week late.
Couldn't stress enough how bad it was to work for this group of people. It clear all they care about in the hospital income and cost, and not about any of the staff and especially not travelers. This was by far my worst contract yet. 10/18/2016 Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was home. Housing was located in city of San Francisco . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. took my own housing
- I worked in the Critical Care department(s) in the hospital. You are hired to work in Critical Care, but you are "switch and bait" floated 95% to a high acuity PCU. Where is the float book? The hospital system is frequently on strike. I loved the staff nurses there. The staff nurses and travelers alike are very knowledgeable. Some of the physicians are very rude. Beautiful hospital building but not nurse friendly atmosphere nor organized. You spend more time running around looking for equipment spread out too far. They are just trying to survive. Poor nursing morale, management could give a hoot,just a paycheck mentality, and rarely staff for "break nurses". There is no lift/turn assist teams because they utilized ceiling lift equipment. This equipment cannot be used or ideal in some situations and with very painful patients. There is "NO" say in the schedule. "PLEASE GET ALL DAYS NEEDED OFF IN WRITING PRIOR CONTRACT." I saw more concern for "PATIENT SATISFACTION" surveys. Family members are allowed with small kids to visit 24/7 even with verbal warning in "CONTACT ISOLATION" rooms (C-diff, Staph, etc.). I spent more time trying to keep my work room unkempt areas clean because of visitors trash. If you like stepping over visitors/kids while trying to hang your IV Cardiac Drips then this is the place to be. If you like frequently reminding family members w/wo kids to do proper hand washing, monitoring all donning on/off gowns, masks and gloves, chasing family members taking in food to these areas. If you like being a "Stepford Wife" nurse do as i say and don't think nurse. This is the place for you. 09/02/2013 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was hotel. Housing was located in city of Burlingame. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Very old apt converted to hotel, full kitchen, clean, scenery is noisy train.
- I worked in the PACU department(s) in the hospital. 07/03/2012 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Creekside. Housing was located in city of San Mateo. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
