- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. The ICU was closed most of the 6 months I was there. In order to get my required hours I was required to float to MS, ER, occasionally to OB for helping hands. Most of the time I was Break Nurse. The ICU is 4 beds and when we did have pts they were not very critical. Felt like I was working on loosing my skills. I would recommend this Hospital to someone that is close to retiring, not a nurse that needs to learn and build on skills. Or a nurse that needs a break from a busy hospital. All hospitalists are Locum so not much consistency that way. It is a small town but High crime area. Very difficult to find housing with this assignment. 02/17/2018 Housing was approximately 60 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was San Benito Thousand Trails. Housing was located in city of Paicines . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. We travel in our 5th wheel. It was difficult to find RV parks that had 50 Amp or could take the size (39 feet). So we had to purchase a membership with Thousand Trails. Had to drive on a back windy road (CA 25) for 57 miles each way. Very hard on my tires, which I had to replace all 4 during this assignment, and brakes. But the park was beautiful.
- I worked in the Operating Room department(s) in the hospital. The OR staff although all very new, (one year or less) are toxic, immature and either non caring about the service we were to provide or thought very highly of themselves. The OR has had no real manager for years so therefore the seasoned PACU nurses and the OR staff run the department. P&P's are non-existent so near misses occur often. The city it self is all but 10 streets and is a hour away from attractions. 12/01/2016 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was I rented a room in a home. Housing was located in city of King City. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Housing in King City is hard to comeby. Greenfield which is another small town is 10 minutes north and Paso robles which is 45 minutes south are possible choices. Look on Craiglist or Airnb
- I worked in the ICU/ER/MS Float department(s) in the hospital. I was told that my primary responsibility would be to staff the ICU, when open. That they had been unable to open it due to lack of RNs. That when the ICU was closed I would be break nurse or float to the ER. The reality is that the ICU is rarely open, the ER rarely needs staff and ICU nurses are expected to work M/S on a regular basis. The patient rooms are double occupancy and quite small. By the time they put a couple of beds, a couple of chairs, IV poles and other equipment in the rooms, I found it hard to negotiate the space without tripping over something. The supervisors are nice enough until you tell them that you are a Critical Care nurse and have never worked M/S and are not comfortable with 4-5 patients. You will then be subjected to demeaning comments about being able to take care of critical patients but not easier patients. I don't see patients who are on the call light constantly, need assistance to the bathroom or portable potty, have 10+ oral meds, snacks frequent pain meds and tons of family as "easier". They will promise you most anything to get you to come here. Good for learning new things while pulling a full load. I just think they should be honest when interviewing. 09/18/2016 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Motel 6. Housing was located in city of King City. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Housing is not available in the town. The next town north, Greenfield does offer corporate housing at a monthly rate of around $2000 per month, more than the stipend. There is nothing much in the area except fast food, grocery store and Denny's.
