  • Housing was approximately n/s mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was none. Housing was located in city of n/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. did not take housing
  • I worked in the ICU/ER department(s) in the hospital. ICU patients were regularly overflowed to the ER for DAYS! even if they were on vasoactive drips or ventilators. They were often left on gurneys because there were not enough beds, as well as not any pillows or blankets. The regular ER patients were often treated in the halls with no privacy. I had the feeling everyday that I was working in a MASH unit or during a natural disaster. The skills of the ER nurses were top notch, don't get me wrong, but they were always short staffed when I asked why they didn't hire more, I was told there were many nurses out on "stress leave", so they couldn't fill their jobs!!!!!!! I was hired as an ICU traveler but volunteered to handle the ICU overflow patients in the ER whenever possible (which was 90% of the time) because the ICU staff were so burnt out and unhelpful. I basically oriented myself, because the RN assigned to orient me told me up front he didn't want to be there. Telemetry patients were often housed anywhere they could be squeezed into a spare room (like the same day surgery area, when not in use), with a portable monitor and often it was down a hallway in a side room converted to a patient "holding area" with only one nurse. Often you had to leave your patients unattended to walk down a hall to the pyxis to get the patients meds. Patients were selling heroin in the ER while they waited! They use an archaic version of a meditech charting system. When I was floated to tele, there was not a single chair for me to sit on the entire 12 hour shift, the central nursing station printer ran out of ink and we could not print documents that were needed. The secretary said this was common and the doctor came removed the cartridge, slammed it on the counter, and said "there, now it will print another page or two!" I was definitely concerned about patient safety and my license. I would never go back. The town itself is a dismal, a very high number of unemployed, a lot of closed businesses and foreclosed homes. windy, hot, dusty, and even the Redbox movie rental kiosk was closed in front of the local Safeway because vandals had taken a crowbar to it one too many times. Sadly, I was told by patients that the other community hospital was even worse. Advice, don't ever need medical care on the I-15 between LA and Vegas!!!! 02/04/2014
  • Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private rental. Housing was located in city of Apple Valley. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing is completely irrelavent to the rating of this hospital as being an experienced traveler, I find my own housing.
