  • I worked in the 24 hour obs/float department(s) in the hospital. The town is small, clean, and neat. Not a lot to do, but I felt the town was generally safe. Quiet, some would say boring, but I’m older and not interested in a party scene. Younger travelers might not be happy here on their off days. The local “mall” is anchored with a sears and a JC Penney. The hospital is very poorly staffed. The ratios are high, but possible with decent nursing support. Sadly, there is NO SUPPORT on any of the floors. I floated quite a bit and had the same issues on all units. They use vocera for communication and I was constantly interrupted. On “lunch break” I averaged 15-20 contacts in that 30 minute period. Nursing is expected to also do the work that case management does at every other hospital I’ve ever worked at. No CNA’s in general, but if you do have one, they answer lights only. Floor nurses are expected to locate and place pre-ops on stretchers for the convenience of the pre-op nurses, as well as “fetching” the charts back and forth. Terrible, ancient IV and PCA pumps, and cheap patient care supplies. Assignments are made without any thought so some nurses will have all the high acuity patients, or they will assign rooms to the same RN at complete opposite ends of the unit. You have zero coverage for lunches, and I never got a single 15 minute break. 80% of the admissions have ETOH issues. Oh, and you have to sign a “contract” that states you will be fired/contract cancelled if you say anything “negative” of “critical” about the facility. I have one month to go, and will never go back. 11/01/2019
  • Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Camper van. Housing was located in city of GF. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
  • I worked in the Trauma Ortho/Neuro department(s) in the hospital. The only complaint I have here was that the Nurse Manager was terrible. She did not support or back her staff ever. The staff was fantastic and supported each other completely. 03/18/2017
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private apt. Housing was located in city of Grand Forks. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
  • I worked in the 6th Floor department(s) in the hospital. Staff friendly, but like anywhere else- lots of gossiping going on here. Too many new grads on the floor, not enough seasoned nurses. Overall it was not a bad experience. I would recommend this hospital to other travelers. The only real issue I had, is that the town is extremely boring. Nothing to do there. 02/02/2017
