  • I worked in the Med/surg Tele department(s) in the hospital. The hospital was new and the procedures were not in place yet. The hospital employees had very low morale and threatened to quit nightly. The environmental services team did quit 1 night leaving the nurse supervisor to clean the rooms. The nurse supervisor was not a resource and often times was unavailable. The physician call schedule was not in place for night shift and getting in touch with the on call doctors usually meant more than 2 phone calls. There were even events where the physician on call did not have privileges at the hospital. We were told that the assignment would be self scheduling but then we were just given what was left in the schedule, meaning one night shift nurse was working Mon, Wed, Fri after requesting nights in a row. The orientation was nearly useless. Finding equipment was near impossible, things were spread out over 2 floors and 6 units. No cafeteria for nights. Pharmacy was incompetent and dangerous!(mislabeling meds, not sending meds on time)I did make a few friends there with the core staff and I plan on keeping in touch with them. They were just as exhausted and disappointed with the hospital system as the travelers. I think in general the staff tried to do the best with what was given, but I would not recommend this hospital to patients or travelers. Many people stated that they would not return to this particular hospital due to the risk to their licenses. 03/02/2015
  • Housing was approximately 3.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Green Oaks . Housing was located in city of Webster. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. About the only thing that I can say about the housing was that the front staff were pretty nice and the commute was easy. That being said, the building was dated, floors were sinking and the gutters were nearly falling off. The apartments are also right next to the NASA airport and the jets taking off shook the roof. The trains across the street were also noisy, as well as the constant traffic. Sleeping during the day was a challenge to say the least! Parking was first come first serve, so coming home on Sunday morning usually meant parking far away from the apartment.
