  • I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. One of the best travel assignments I have had to this date. staff great. nurse to patio ratios 1:4. mostly Spanish speaking population, use of the language line. charge nurses are great. doctors are great. 1 hr lunch break with relief nurses. county hospital so you see a lot of homeless individuals and those without insurance. a lot of psych and 5150's. there a separate area next to the ER called PES- psych emergency services. PD is also here a lot for medical clearance before taking individuals to jail. its a lot of stupidity, like high blood pressure, but this is after the person fought and cursed the whole way to the jail. they do hold patients in the ER sometimes- so you are a ER, ICU, and Med/Surg nurse. there is one parking lot in the front of the hospital for patients. their is street parking- but its for 2 hrs and there are people who walk around and write tickets if you have been there over two hrs. there is a large parking lot in the back of the hospital, but there is rarely parking there as well. free parking is few and if you do find free parking, it will be a few blocks from the hospital and in front of someone's house. there is a neighborhood directly across the street from the hospital and this is where the free parking and the a lot of the 2 hr parking is. 05/27/2017
  • Housing was approximately 29 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was San Jose. Housing was located in city of San Jose. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Living in San Mateo is ridiculous such as $1,500-2,000 per month for a studio apartment. a lot of people who live in this area, rent rooms out of their home. I did this in Oakland and it worked out well because everyone had their on separate private entrance.
  • I worked in the Emergency Room department(s) in the hospital. If you love the out doors and water this place is awesome. There are hiking trails every where you look and it is 25 minutes south of San Francisco. I chose my own housing and a room to rent ranges from $1,100 and up. Me being the cheap guy that I, am I found housing north of Oakland for $760 but the drive is about an hour.. totally worth the saving though. 04/23/2017
  • Housing was approximately 5> mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Provided my own.. Housing was located in city of San Pablo.
