- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Lots of new grads constantly. You might be the only experienced nurse in an area with 3 of them. Constantly getting new "moodles" to do aka modules. The safety at the hospital is a concern especially when there has been a shooting because they can't lock the place down. No metal detectors to search people for weapons. Their RTA area can be overwhelming with 30+ patients and as little as 3 nurses at times. Long wait times to see the doctors. Travelers don't get to work in the trauma area. Also a teaching hospital. 03/22/2019 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Overlook. Housing was located in city of Moreno Valley. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Short term lease apartments available nearby near the Moreno Valley mall and on Moreno Beach Drive.
- I worked in the L&D department(s) in the hospital. Understaffed, no schedule requests allowed, staff sitting while travelers had the patient load, charge nurse unable to be gotten ahold of in an emergency, management rarely present. The area was okay but many of the staff warned not to go out after dark. 12/11/2018 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Rancho Belago Apartments. Housing was located in city of Moreno Valley. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Really nice complex and around 7-minute commute to the facility. Could be a bit noisy on occasion but great stay there. Next to Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl's, close to grocery store and many restaurants.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. This is a traveler friendly unit with a great rapport amongst the multidisciplinary team. I really enjoyed working with the staff here- the camaraderie was fantastic. General ICU- primarily medical and stroke patients; also neuro surg & trauma. Travelers are first to float to the PCU. Travelers have no say in their schedule & are “here to fill in holes,” whether or not that means working two weekends in-a-row, working a M-W-F week, etc. The schedule isn't finalized until about 1-2 weeks before the schedule period starts. Unfortunately, compliance at this hospital was a nightmare. There is a single Right Sourcing individual who heads it all at this facility- and the words "please" and "thank you" don’t seem to be in her vocabulary. It also doesn't matter how early you sign on for your contract and subsequent extensions, she will wait until a few days before your start date to tell you about extra items that are "mandatory" and that she needs "ASAP." I have been traveling for years, and never before have I experienced such frustration with the compliance process. This frustration is unanimous amongst the travelers here. And unfortunately, her last minute demands continue throughout your entire contract. Also be aware that their compliance requirements are 10x more demanding than any other facility as well; including completion of about 15 hours worth of online modules prior to your start date (and depending on what company you’re working with, or your level of savviness, this is often unpaid). 07/11/2018 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was other. Housing was located in city of Perris. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Loved my 13 weeks here. 05/19/2016 Housing was approximately 0.2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Broadstone. Housing was located in city of Moreno Valley. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Quiet, locked gate housing.
