  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. I worked here for 12 weeks. The doctors, PAs, and NPs were awesome. They were all approachable. Best group I have worked with. The ED is set up weird. Lots of halls and all the nursing stations were secluded. Hard to see what was going on at the other end of the ED to see if they needed any help. It's pretty much just you and your 4 rooms. Hard to meet people. I still didn't know all the nurses after being there for 12 weeks. It is split into an acute and subacute side. There is a charge nurse for each section and a supervisor for both sides. Often, they were understaffed. However, the charges & supervisor never took a section if it was really busy. Instead, they micromanaged and would let you know everything you still had to do. They also would not relieve lunches and many times I would not get a break. Yet, they were just hanging out at the nurse's station. Management wasn't much better. The scheduler put me down for 1 or 2 shifts multiple weeks. Had to pick up different shifts to get my 36 hours. I attempted to meet the director many times but she did not meet with me until week 9 of my assignment. It was when she expressed interest in me extending. They sent over the extension, I had it signed, and 2 days later they canceled it saying they didn't need me anymore. They did it to another traveler as well. Orientation consisted of a day of computers. They made sure you did all your online learnings, were able to swipe in and out of areas, log into the computers, etc. That was really nice because everything worked starting my first day on the unit. Second day was orienting in the ED for 4 hours and then I was on my own. They could probably use a whole shift because it was a large ED. The nurses and doctors were great; very welcoming. The down side was management and the run around I often got from them. 08/24/2016
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Homewood Suites. Housing was located in city of West Chester. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Stayed at Homewood Suites. Rooms were new and nice. Had a kitchen and complimentary dinners Monday through Thursdays.
