- I worked in the Float pool department(s) in the hospital. I worked nights in the float pool. The other nurses were helpful and I would have some say in my schedule. Only one time I had 6 patients and that was on the rehab floor, other than that I was always 5 or less which I liked. The floors were fair with their assignments. I always brought food but I didn't hear complaints about the cafeteria. They do use meditech and that was archaic but you get used to it. I really enjoyed their PCU, gen surg, neuro, ortho, rehab, and spine floors. 6 Med/tele had an awful reputation while I was there and I floated there a few times and it was always crazy busy. They have parking garages but I would park on the street. The hospital was nice and had a good reputation, I had patients flown in from Kansas. 06/07/2017 Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Denver. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the emergency department(s) in the hospital. This hospital is located really in south denver and has a great reputation. They are fantastic about moving patients out of the ED and into in-pt units. You RARELY held on to pts and if you did they sent staff to take care of them. AMAZING. The cafeteria was mostly good and I ate the bulk of my meals there. They had decent hours for night staff. The doctors I cannot say enough good things about, along with protocols which are there to improve service delivery and pt comfort. The teamwork was crap. People have the attitude if its not their pt they don't need to help. The techs were the laziest I have worked with. They would wait until you asked them to do something and then give you a hard time about it. Seriously terrible. Scheduling was HORRIFIC. They violated my contract numerous times (have your shift hours specified and even then you might be screwed as I would wind up working multiple different shift hours in the same week, and vacay time is nonexistant) but the scheduler has since left. She was horrible to everyone. OT was easy to come by, as they always wanted people to pull extra shifts. Education/Orientation was the best I've had thanks to their ED educator Steve who was amazing. I saw a ton of psychs, ODs, Drunks/combative patients and we would hang on to them for days. No resources there for these patients. The ED staff was catty and clique. They make it clear youre not one of them (doctors excepted) and they make sure to not be helpful. The management is ok but when pts complain (no matter how riduculous, you'll hear from the director).
This was the 5th contract I worked in the Denver area. Housing prior hadn't been an issue. Theres tons to do because they're attached to Denver. They were using T-systems which is very user friendly, and they're used to having lots of agency/travelers (why they're mean I have no clue, people don't tend to extend). 01/29/2014 Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was None. Housing was located in city of Denver. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I had a very difficult time finding housing for this contract which resulted in me hotel hopping. This was an incredibly difficult contract both in and out of work because of that added factor.
