- I worked in the float pool department(s) in the hospital. I worked this contract between September-December 2015. I worked in the float pool. The manager, Darla, was easy to work with and she kept me on the same schedule the entire 13 weeks I was there. My only complaint about the float pool is they reassess their needs every 4 hours, which means, every 4 hours you can possibly (and will probably) be floated to another unit or campus. Many, many, many times I was floated to other campuses 4 hours into the day. The system is broken though because they want you to leave your current assignment at 1100, be over to the new other unit/campus within 30 mins-ish, but your relief doesn't even start their shift until 1100, then you still have to give report on 6 patients...it's just too time consuming and nearly impossible to meet those requirements. By the time you're finished giving report, it's nearly 1200. You absolutely HAVE to stay ahead of all your charting if you're on the float pool!! I loved Wichita, though, and I'd definitely return to Via Christi for another contract in the future. 06/10/2016 Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private housing. Housing was located in city of Wichita, KS. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
- I worked in the PACU department(s) in the hospital. The nurses in the unit are in their own cliques, half are helpful and the others are a waste of space. Be careful around Shellie Miller she is a nasty nurse. I would not want her to care for me or my family after surgery. The manager is nice and helpful on the unit. 01/10/2015 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Rain Tree. Housing was located in city of Wichita . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Nice area. Lots of families. Closer to a free standing emergency room owned by Welsley.
