- I worked in the PICU department(s) in the hospital. Hmmmm how to describe this place...First let me say that they are building a new, bigger hospital that is supposed to open end of 2017. But it seems as though the smaller older hospital is already up to the expected new census so it feels like a family of 9 in a 3 bedroom house-chaotic, disorganized, stuffed! Patients and equipment in weird nooks and crannies(the Peds ED is miles away in the separate adult hospital!!!) and yet...everyone is pretty nice! They try to help you. You run around putting out fires together. Maybe this is because the place is 60% travelers and a lot of the staff used to be travelers.
People hang out together after work, they get frustrated and leave to another hospital, but come back. So I like it here kinda. I will say this isn't the place for your first travel assignment you should have some traveling under your belt. Straight days is not a good choice-it's really tough to keep up even with help. I was only floated once-to CVICU(Peds)which was packed, but a little calmer since they get mostly scheduled cases.
They have meds at the bedside,techs,phlebotomists,an IV team, resource nurses.Patients are in bays with curtains, some private rooms.Computer charting is EPIC. Pay is great. Food is good, but closes at night. Day parking is a mile away with a shuttle and costs $, but still cheaper than UCSF Children's. Night parking is free and closer. 10/12/2016 Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was got my own. Housing was located in city of San Mateo. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. San Mateo has a great walk-able downtown near 4th St. Some people stay in SF (take Caltrain and free shuttle to LPCH)
Palo Alto is $$ and kinda boring. San Jose is cheaper and less boring than Palo Alto, but more boring than SF. Housing stipends are high so get your own place.Try AirBnB.
