  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I loved this hospital as a traveler to the point where I extended. A month after they asked me to extend, they cancelled my contract because they said I didn’t document daily weight and that I was drinking water at the nurses station. When I received the phone call, my friend who was also a traveler there, received the same phone call. After this, we were made aware of about 4 other travelers who all got cancelled, for the most ridiculous reasons. Things we were never even made aware of, or received a verbal warning for that matter. You have to walk on eggshells at this hospital and it’s just no way to work. I’ve never had this issue at any other hospital I’ve been at. Beware! 04/09/2018
  • Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Found my own . Housing was located in city of Costa Mesa . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Lots of issues with Avalon, but I found my own housing an took the tax free stipends
  • I worked in the Telemetry/MS department(s) in the hospital. All staff was very friendly and happy to have travelers there helping them. You have 1-2 or sometimes no CNA each shift, which is sometimes difficult, but there was always help. Charge nurse has no patients, which is helpful. There is a telemetry monitor tech. Health Connect (EPIC) charting system. Break rooms are giant. No cafeteria open at night. They assure that you get 3 15 minute breaks and 1 30min lunch. Ginger (staffing) was very nice and accommodating with scheduling. They have phlebotomy, so you only draw your own blood on central lines. Nurses don't even do their own EKG's! I worked night shift. Always busy, but time went by fast. I would definitely recommend coming here! 04/26/2017
  • 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 5. N/A
  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. The ER staff and managers are very helpful and welcoming to travelers. The charting requirements are a little excessive, so expect to spend more time charting than normal. Ratios are 3:1 except when covering breaks when ratios are 4:1. The charge nurses are really good about letting you be 1:1 if you have a critical patient. We were always fully staffed and always had plenty of techs available to assist. Travelers never get assigned to triage. ER nurses have a set schedule that rotates biweekly, so you'll work with the same charge nurse and same staff every shift. ER nurses work every other weekend and never work more than 3 shifts in a row. Patient population is fairly healthy in general and everyone has follow up care because they're Kaiser members. Overall, lower acuity than most facilities, but fairly high volume. There's a good bit of pediatric patients. Breaks are guaranteed and someone covers your patients while you are taking your break. I always got three 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch every single shift, with coverage. There was a lot of training online and little tests prior to starting, but nothing that was "if you don't pass, your contract is cancelled". There was no boring classroom orientation when I began. Only an EPIC class and a quick "let me show you around the ER and have you sign some papers" thing. Management was always very friendly and approachable. Charge nurses have your back. Overall, it's a really good place to do a travel contract. 03/25/2016
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Renaissance. Housing was located in city of Orange. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Housing was decent. The complex looked pretty new. Large open floorplans, balconies, assigned parking spaces, two pools, two workout rooms, right between the 57 and 5 freeways, so easy access to just about anywhere. Huge outlet mall right down the street. Angel stadium and Honda Center less than a mile away. Disneyland just a few miles away.
  • GREAT 12/15/2015
