  • I worked in the Medical department(s) in the hospital. More travelers then staff nurses. Staff nurses very unhappy. Normal patient load is 8 or 9 on days . Broken chairs , broken computer stands. 04/22/2017
  • Housing was approximately 25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was 3100 Suffolk Drive. Housing was located in city of Pikeville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Couldn't find closer housing.
  • I worked in the Ur/cm department(s) in the hospital. Managers are completely unprepared for their job and are oblivious to working conditions and how to improve them. Good ole boys system. Poor morale. 01/08/2017
  • Housing was approximately 6 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Motel. Housing was located in city of Prestonsburg. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Extremely discounts
  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Incredibly understaffed. under-triage of patients leading to long delays in treatment, extremely long waits for provider orders [pacing themselves on seeing patients] boarding patients in the ED requiring admission procedures while continuing to accept new EMS/walk-in patients, staffing extremely poor on night shift for this over-whelmed ED with unit staffing even worse 10:1 ratio. Be very cautious working at this facility! 10/03/2016
  • Housing was approximately 9 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was motel. Housing was located in city of Prestonsberg. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Difficult to find any chain or locally owned motel/hotel to give a significant discount to travelers, most rooms are currently smoke-filled, as well as hallways and entryways. check for bed-bugs!
