  • Housing was approximately Less than one mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Mortimer Hall. Housing was located in city of Kingwood. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. 06/17/2013
  • The housing is a short stay place. Clean, modern, all utilities included, but ridiculously expensive especially for the area. I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. The ER staffs a maximum of two nurses at all times. One for triage. One for six patients. Ancillary departments are at minimum staffing as well. ER nurses draw all labs. There is one in house RT. If the ER gets busy, which with only one nurse for six patients, it can feel that way quite frequently, the house supervisor is supposed to come and assist. The majority of house supervisors in this facility have three or less years of nursing experience. Several of the ER docs are actually family practice docs that just pick up shifts in the ER, one is actually a general surgeon. The county has no fulltime paramedics and thus the majority of patients have no prehospital care whatsoever. Also nurses are frequently required to go on interfacility transports in the absence of a medic. If you are uncomfortable with this, you will be left in the ER with the house supervisor as your only backup while the other nurse goes on the IFT. OT is offered in abundance, but you rarely get it and are rather called off and/or given low census after a few hours and a floor nurse will take your place. The staff are very nice to travelers, but their morale is incredibly low. The computer system is CPSI at it's barest bone level and ridiculously user unfriendly. The techs in the ER however are both EMS, one an EMT-P and one an EMT-B and are both excellent resources and very knowledgable.
