  • I worked in the Infirmary/Chronic department(s) in the hospital. As soon as I arrived to the facility in March 2014, Regional/State also made an appearance. My contract ends in June, but State has made it clear that they will be 'in town' for a while. They are investigating an issue that ended in the death of an inmate. I worked Day shift (0500-1530). I enjoyed working in the Infirmary. It is similar to working in a hospital setting. Most of the time, I would have help available if I needed it. There were times that I would be by myself with the Infirmary officer while the float nurse made rounds on other units. I would also work on their Chronic unit doing things like treatments, vital signs, medication passes, etc. Occasionally, I would be by myself on this unit. The night nurse/CHA would help with morning med pass depending who it was. Safety: I felt safe for the most part. Being that I'm somewhat attractive and young, I do get headaches from being on guard all the time. The inmates would find any excuse to get my attention. My advice is to always get to know the Officer you're working with because they will be the ones to take care of you. Professionalism: Everyone gossips. Just do your job. Say very little and watch your back. Inmates will also try to pick at you for information. Restaurants: There are plenty of places to eat around the facility. KFC. Bojangles. McDonald's. Subway. I brought my own lunch, but it's not like your out in the middle of no where. Stores: Walmart is close. FYI: Buy a clear bag. Everything you bring in has to be clear. WOMEN: Buy sports bras if possible because the underwire in your bra might not pass through the metal detector and unless you want to explain why it's beeping...buy a sports bra! 05/29/2014
  • Housing was approximately 48 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of West Jefferson. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I chose to drive an hour because I already had a rental agreement before deciding to do travel nursing.
