- I worked in the PACU department(s) in the hospital. Worked as a ICU nurse in the PACU for holdovers and for overflow when ICU didn't have adequate staff available for a full ICU. PACU was not equipped/stocked for genuine ICU pts. Beds were there, but no stocked cardiac emergent meds except in the single crash cart for the whole 23-bed unit. Second nurse for pts (had to have two if there was a pt on the unit) was taken from the hand recovery unit and was most usually a nurse who had already worked the 12 hour day shift, so she was there for 24 hours (against KY state law?) Possibly 4 patients with two nurses, which is adequate for a *REAL* ICU, but when one is not an ICU nurse, it is a bad situation looking for an opportunity to happen. Some members of PACU staff outwardly verbal about their dislike of travelers w/complaints of having to train travel staff how to do their job. Though members of staff were counseled with regards to this, the berating continued.
Cafeteria was more than adequate, but only open until 6:30PM the grill/salad bar reopened at 11pm-2am.
Stayed at the Days Inn on Arthur St exit I-65 South. Not the best conditions, but at least it didn't have the chalk outline on the floor. 09/23/2016 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Day's Inn on Arthur St Exit, I-65 South.. Housing was located in city of Louisville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Generally adequate parking (7 floor parking garage) though elevators were the slowest I'd ever seen. This facility had the best HVAC system I had ever experienced.
The micro-surgeons were the best in the world. I saw limb reattachments, saw a toe made into a thumb. VEry, very impressive.
- I worked in the 7/8 Heart Lung department(s) in the hospital. Hospital is located downtown Louisville. I worked the night shift. Patient ratio was ok, but not enough techs (only 1 for the whole floor). Not a lot to do in Louisville except for museums and the horse races. Chose not to extend past my 13 weeks. 05/25/2016 Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Enclave at Breckenridge. Housing was located in city of Louisville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Housing was not great. It felt like a housing project with an upgrade. Steep stairs, no garbage disposal, and lots of noise in the hallways. The washer/dryer is a 1 unit combo, and each load takes 1.5 hours to wash and almost 2.5 hours to dry. Office staff is not very friendly.
- I worked in the CVICU department(s) in the hospital. Amazing. If you love acuity, you will love it here. Always exciting, patients are very sick. CRRT, IABP, VAD, ECMO and transplants to take care of. Permanent staff welcomed me and treated me like family. 02/16/2015 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of Louisville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Rented an apartment in a really old building. Decent for the money, land lord named Tom screwed us out of our deposit after we left the city knowing we couldn't do much about it.
- I worked in the OR/OCC department(s) in the hospital. Never been treated so badly as a traveler-worst experience in almost 3 years traveling and 20 years in OR 01/19/2015 Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Suburban Extended Stay. Housing was located in city of Clarksville IN. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. great rates!!
- I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. This was my worst travel experience ever! The majority of the staff were very rude. They talk down to the travelers and treat them like they are stupid.
01/09/2014 Housing was approximately 11 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Mallard Crossing. Housing was located in city of Louisville . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I really enjoyed my apartment. It could stand to be updated, but the square footage was great. Walk-in closets, and a storage room outside on the porch. Swimming pool, tennis court, tanning bed, and gym. Right across the road from a dog park, and minutes from 2 malls.
