  • I worked in the ED department(s) in the hospital. Night shift is very understaffed by design. The techs are not skilled to assist with jobs typical for ED Techs (IV placement, lab draws, EKG, or place a NC). The ED Techs can take admitted pt's to the floor or get equipment for you, get your patient water or food, give them a blanket, but that is about the extent of it. If they take VS for you, you still have to enter that information into the computer since the techs can't. There is a strong click on the night shift in the ER that does not welcome travelers. This click, in particular, becomes irritated toward travel nurses asking questions to clarify a hospital policy or how this particular hospital handles processes that vary and are different depending on the hospital where you are working. One doctor in particular on the night shift is passive aggressive and bullies nurses with lateral violence. 04/19/2019
  • Housing was approximately 14 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was I stayed at the nearby navy base.. Housing was located in city of Newport. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. This is a seasonal vacation community. Getting housing is difficult from April to October because of vacation rentals.
  • I worked in the PCU department(s) in the hospital. This hospital serves the largest retirement community in the whole universe, I'm pretty sure. Vast majority of clientele is 90+. HCA facility, poor ratios, poor staffing, schedule/floating policies are not traveler friendly. There's not much of anything other than fast food restaurants and a shopping mall near the hospital, but it's right on the highway and ~30 minutes from the fun part of Tampa. It was under construction while I was there, so it should be improved soon! Very old, things were always breaking. They had a brand new ICU/PCU director who was trying to improve things, and a new CNO who was trying to get rid of the new director. Overall a fine experience since the people I worked with were great, but I'll never work for another HCA facility again if I can help it! 09/12/2016
  • Housing was approximately 30 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private apartment complex. Housing was located in city of Tampa. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Private housing in South Tampa, not provided by my contract
