  • I worked in the Telemetry department(s) in the hospital. In the interview phase I was told we would have an average of 6 patients. I have had 7 patients for all but 5 of my shifts (note: I said shifts not weeks). Level of acuity isnt put into thought for example, i had 7 patients 3 contact 1 airborne, 2 of them were peg tube feedings and required frequent turning and required wound care and one of them was having an mi that required a drip. As far as area goes, there isnt too much to do. alot of mexican food, and the beach is an hour away. EVERYONE speaks spanish, so if you come, make sure you are fluent or else it just makes your job 10x harder. 02/19/2016
  • Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was none. Housing was located in city of mcallen. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. i found my own housing
  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. Oh my God! The most hateful b*t*ches EVER filled with hate. Being close to the Mexican border, I do not consider that hospital as being in the U.S. Talk about "minority wars". You will always feel like an outcast for not speaking the almighty Spanish lingo. Not interested in learning Spanish. I broke my contract after being floated to their PICU because their NICU staff never wanted to. Very rude and uncouth managers! A very NASTY place to LIVE and WORK!!! 02/16/2016
