  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. St. Anthony's ICU is unusual in that it's a mixed critical care unit. About 20 beds that takes everything from ICU to Med/Tele. Your individual patient ratio is based on your acuity and is pretty standard (actually light for M/T). There's a HUC and usually an aide on nights along with a charge nurse who doesn't take patients and can usually help out. It's a pretty new facility and ergonomics are good. The computers tend to be slow and glitchy. Staff is friendly and helpful when they've got time. I can't really explain how, but I always feel like I'm busy and running behind here. On paper, the staffing is fine and the patient acuity is good, and getting a break isn't a problem. But more often than not, at the end of a shift, I feel like I've barely kept up. 12/05/2017
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private rental. Housing was located in city of Gig Harbor. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Gig Harbor is a pretty hoity-toity town. Probably a really fun place in the summer. I wasn't able to find a furnished apartment, so I wound up with an AirBnB type place. Very convenient to the hospital. Tacoma is nearby, but traffic is bad, and rent isn't much cheaper. Port Orchard might be the best place to look.
  • I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. Bad scheduling, short staff every night, no triage nurse, staff spend too much time texting and on social media, patient length of stay is 9 to 12 hrs in ER, average of 6- 10 patients holding in ER for 24 hrs awaiting admission. Orientation is about 3 hrs long, no access granted to use iStat machines. Computer access and charting is limited for travelers 01/08/2017
  • Housing was approximately 40 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was own. Housing was located in city of Olympia. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing was not available
