- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Of course, winter months in Florida -- well, snowbirds. so needless to say numerous ambulances, cardiac and stroke pts.
for some reason this ER does NOT flow very well. I had a pt come in intubated and we held them in the ER for 5-6 hours before getting admission orders... Crazy!
scheduling is a nightmare. was told that on the first day of orientation they would bring down the schedule. HA. on the last day of orientation they still did not have the schedule completed. it was 4p and all new ER staff (6 of us) were told they would call us by 5 and tell us our schedule. When we finally got our schedule it was 1 week at a time.
ER charting is computerized, the rest of the hospital paper charts so if you have a pt that will be admitted you will likely start paper charting in the ER.
week long orientation is worthless. lots of sitting on your butt and listening to people talk. they did not give out user names and passwords and allow staff to attempt to login before completing their required orientation. no hospital tour.
due to the hospitals poor history of numerous central line infections and uti's after catheter insertion they make you do this horrible training, practice, computer testing, demonstration testing and sign off before you can do anything with a central line or urinary catheter. then when you do finally get the privilege of doing the task, you have to have someone watch you every single time and sign off that you completed to their standards.
you will have several different user sign ins for every system they have (approx. 10). overwhelming. they will give you a paper to carry around so you will know what format your user name needs to be (ex. employee number, last 6 of ssn, first initial last name, first initial middle initial last name, last 4 of ssn, first initial last initial last 6 of ssn, etc)
the hospital has a problem with the drs requesting the wrong status for a pt when admitted (inpt or obs) OR the admission person enters the wrong admission status when requesting a bed, sooooo it is now the nurses' responsibility to check the pt's admission status BEFORE the pt goes to the floor. If the nurse fails to do this, quality will report to your immediate supervisor and you will be reprimanded.
the er has 24 beds but there are only 12 open at 7a and by 9a all 12 are full. no relief for opening an additional 4 rooms until 11a. ambulances constantly rolling in. high acuity pts. pt ratio WILL go from 4:1 to 5:1 and no signs of any help. ER administration will come out to the floor but they are NO help. the ultimate result is too many chiefs not enough Indians.
I was told about the hospital's history of poor drainage or sewer leakage. it is documented in the local paper. the hospital has poor ratings among the locals.
this hospital has seasonal contracts. pay for the 2015/2016 season is 42 dayshift/47 nightshift. in my opinion, not enough due to the inflated rent during their peak season.
SORRY FOR THE TYPOS, THE LACK OF CAPITALIZATION AND THE -OVERUSE OF CAPS....
educate yourself about this hospital and area before you take a contract here.
01/07/2016 Housing was approximately 25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was rented a room from individual from Craigslist (overpriced and hard to find housing). Housing was located in city of Englewood. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Find housing before you go. Everything in and around Venice, FL is overpriced and in general and not very nice. A room in someone's home will cost you 500-800/month.
they say the population of venice is 20k but during the winter months it is approx. 65k.
- I worked in the Med/Tele department(s) in the hospital. The building is very old and has a lot of plumbing problems. They have been under investigation for quality of care and numerous other problems. Stay away from this facility! 10/12/2015 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was found own housing. Housing was located in city of Venice. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. expensive for this area.
