  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I floated EVERY. SINGLE. SHIFT. except 4 shifts. They had me working Med/Surg as their ICU "backup". I do not believe a nurse who has 4-5 of her own patients is a sufficient "back up". Their "ICU" patients are not centrally monitored. So when the ICU nurse is one patients room and their "back up" is dealing with her 4-5 patients down the hall, NO ONE is monitoring their other patient. Someone could literally die in this hospital and no one would know for 20 minutes. I've never even heard of a hospital only having one ICU nurse by herself!! CRAZY. Oh, and there is a doctor there that is TERRIBLE towards the nurses and they won't do anything about it. Calling them names and treating them like they are idiots. Mind blowing. 12/05/2017
  • Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private. Housing was located in city of Auburn. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. None
  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Be sure to clarify any schedule you cannot work. They did not discuss in my interview putting me on all of my 72 hours in 7 days, however they did so. It was impossible to get switches or change very much. Make sure if you do not want grouped days or want every other weekend off you ASK for it specifically and state it in your contract. Some staff is excellent at avoiding work, and many do not jump in and help out. It is hit or miss if you have any teamwork on your shift in the ER. There is NO TRIAGE NURSE. Patients may wait in the waiting room for up to 2 hours without having been seen by a medical professional, just a registration person. This is VERY dangerous. Negotiate that you get the OT after 36 hours because that's standard in Franciscan health care, they are union. Also they are entitled to TWO 30 minute breaks per 12.5 hour shift-union rules. Negotiate well if you are able. 06/23/2016
  • Housing was approximately 21 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was found my own. Housing was located in city of puyallup. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I hated where I lived. I loved Enumclaw but I stayed in Puyallup. Don't do this. It's the armpit of the area, according to all locals!
