- I worked in the ICU/TICU department(s) in the hospital. Everyone here was friendly and the facility is really nice. I was sad to move on to the next place after my assignment was up. Staff is great here and I would recommend this place for sure. There is also a TON to do in the Chandler area. 02/05/2017 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Chandler Meadows. Housing was located in city of Chandler. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Nice apartment, that offers short term leases. Rent is reasonable. They will also furnish the place for you. You are right next to the 101Loop so you are a quick drive from everything.
- I worked in the emergency department department(s) in the hospital. I did not like this hospital at all. The staff spoke so poorly of each other and they bullied their own staff at times and travelers also. At the time I was there, it was a miserable place to work. I agreed to work an extra shift for the next schedule because they needed help, and they put me 7 in a row. I told the scheduler I could not safely do this and he said that other travelers do it and if I cancel my shift I may get canceled. Not a nice place to work. Kindness breeds kindness and there is very little there. 10/18/2016 Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a . Housing was located in city of n/a . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. I got my own housing. It is a nice area. I felt safe there.
- I worked in the emergency department(s) in the hospital. Agism. They ran all of the mature travelers/staff nurses with experience who weren't in their 'clique' of cool kids off. The manager enjoys telling people 'this just isn't a good fit' if you aren't willing to accept the sub standard flow through the emergency department or if you'd prefer to ever do anything in the ED other than constipations and abdominal pains. They seemed to be very more concerned with their 'clique' than patient safety and the new nurses, with less than 5 years of experience loved it. Anyone who had been a nurse for more than 10-15 years and actually expected a certain standard and cohesiveness of care found themselves relegated to the back room or was finally run out. Many cancelled contracts here for anyone with experience. If you're a new nurse and still getting your feet wet, this place will treat you like gold. If you already have experience and actually dare to try and have a constructive discussion about the dangers you've witnessed in their ER, you will be run out for any reason they can create. In the end, you'll hear 'We'll just say it isn't a good fit, how's that?' and then you'll be out. 10/18/2016 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Chandler Meadows. Housing was located in city of Chandler. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Get your own furniture or buy a very good mattress topper, their beds are HORRIBLE. The furniture is really bottom of the line if you get the furnished apartment. Sizable apartments but the office is only open during business hours so if you need anything, you will wait until Monday morning unless there's an obvious leak flooding your place.
- I worked in the Float Pool department(s) in the hospital. It was a good place to work, I was extended twice. However, I left after my first extension as my rate was lowered by my agency. Manager was easy to communicate with and there for you for whatever you needed her for. She is potentially leaving after she completes Grad School. You could pick your own scheduled and mine was honored 90% during my assignments. As a Float there were some floors that were worse off then others. Some would treat you equally and other tried their best to give you a terrible assignment. Sometimes you were with five patients without an aid. As an experienced nurse I was able to handle it. I was required to float to Mercy Gilbert as I will leave a review there. I tried applying here as a permanent staff to several positions on floors I had worked on and in critical care but, was denied for all applications. It is not a diverse place. Furthermore, they will not allow room for growth. Initially, I was submitted for an ICU Float as I came from a Level 1 trauma center in the Northeast a a Critical Care Float but, was told that I did not have enough experience to work in their Critical Care floors. After talking to some of the staff there floors were not as intense as what I had experience with. Some staff that had been on one floor for a period of time and wanted to move forward were not able to. Overall if you are just looking to do an assignment it is good. However, I usually do not want to return to hospitals will only use me for their Travel positions but, not as permanent staff. 08/29/2016 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Symphony. Housing was located in city of Chandler. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. My apartment was pretty expensive compared to a yearly lease. The price changed according to the season. The best thing there was plenty of storage, washer/dryer, appliances up to date, layout of the apartment was large and nice, they have two pools, a play area, and it was easy to walk to. When I moved in the carpet smelled of cat urine. I cleaned the carpet myself. There were minor repairs that no one ever showed up for, so my husband fixed it. My roof leaked twice. The last time it leaked I had to have a loud fan drying the area. When you work nights it is a nuisance. Neighbors were loud. Not great when you are in grad school. When I moved they did not tell me that I would have a carpet inspection. I had to remind them the condition of the carpet when I moved in and that we had to clean it several times to get the smell out. Anyway, there were no charged incurred.
- I worked in the PCU/Tele North/B3A/"Cardiopulmonary" department(s) in the hospital. Staff is friendly. When RNs do total care, ratio 3:1, if there is a tech then 4:1. The unit is a general tele unit with many low acuity, total care patients, many med-surg type patients. Rarely any critical patients/drips. Staff is mostly new grads. Equipment in this tower is outdated and often broken, rooms are very small. It wasn't a terrible experience and other travelers seem to be quite happy here on other units, but I wouldn't come back to this unit. 04/29/2016 Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was personal. Housing was located in city of Phoenix. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. The area near the hospital seems quite nice to live.
- I worked in the Float Pool department(s) in the hospital. I have been traveling to this hospital for 1.5 years. Culture began to change during these years and professionalism was something they lack. 40% of the nurses aides were very efficient, while the others were very unprofessional; eg, telling RN's what their responsibilities are as an RN. Not doing tasks as asked, ignore the RN's when asked to help or perform a task. Charge nurses were pretty good, but at times, did not know how to handle situations within different units. Staffing is very short, so I felt core staff were very short tempered from being overworked. I would return to this hospital, just not at this time. 04/11/2016 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Red Stone. Housing was located in city of Gilbert. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. This housing complex does not rent short term anymore, only 12 month leases. It's a shame because this place was amazing!
- I worked in the Float Pool department(s) in the hospital. Great hospital to work. I did my first travel assignment here and came back again. 12/04/2015 Housing was approximately 16 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was personal. Housing was located in city of Phoenix. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. housing was personal.
- I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. Loved my time at Chandler. I have never worked somewhere that the management cared so much about their employees and moral.
Charge RN was always free, and if we didn't have techs on the floor, we took fewer patients.
Knowledgeable staff, great management.
10/16/2015 Housing was approximately 30 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was personal. Housing was located in city of Avondale. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. I did two 13 week assignments in the ER. Typical staffing ratio is 3:1, nurses do all care, some tech help. Other nurses willing to help, charge nurses helpful, lots of travelers, friendly staff, great ER. 04/04/2015 Housing was approximately na mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was na. Housing was located in city of na. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. na
- I worked in the Neuro/tele department(s) in the hospital. 01/26/2015 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Waterside by ocotillo. Housing was located in city of Chandler. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. This was a craigslist roomie who turned out great but be careful if you are going that route. Also don't live in Mesa. I
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. The intensive care physicians are EXCELLENT and use evidence based practice and the new ICU tower is brand new with excellent equipment. The intensivist is in house all night and does rounds on the patients even at night. The trauma ICU is in the old tower with some of the equipment being older, but the trauma team and NP are so responsive and in house at all times. Great staff and a lot of travelers while I was there. Very accommodating to my comfort level and responsive if I felt uncomfortable with an assignment. Almost always a SWAT RN available to do CT runs and help with beside procedures. My favorite hospital so far! Would come back in a heartbeat! 12/16/2014 Housing was approximately .5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Symphony Apartments. Housing was located in city of Chandler. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. The apartment was great, I chose company housing for convenience and there are two pools, workout center, gated community, I frequently walked to work it is so close!
- I worked in the Trauma/ICU department(s) in the hospital. I cannot say anything but wonderful things about this place. If you get a chance to travel to this hospital go! We enjoyed our assignment. Staff was great, doctors were super friendly,and hospital is very traveler friendly. I highly recommend. Housing isn't bad but its much cheaper to find your own on VRBO or Airbnb 10/03/2014 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Vrbo.com. Housing was located in city of Chandler. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. We found our own housing on VRBO or Airbnb. It was much cheaper!
