- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the ER. The Henderson ER was full of Type A personalities, which is unusual for the ER. It made for an odd working environment. They were nice though. I was told in my interview that they kept a 4:1 ratio in the acute area of the ER, though this was not always the case. This was around the beginning of the mandated stay-at-home order due to Covid-19. The very last shift I worked I had 10 patients, including several ESI 2s. I had a patient with a SBP in the 240s that was placed in a chair because "there are no free beds" even though there were 8 unstaffed stretchers in the back. The MD ordered BP medication, which dropped the patient's pressure to 88/46. I literally had to hold the patient from falling out of the chair. When I asked for a stretcher I was told "no" and to "figure it out." The next day they transferred the travelers from the ER to the ICU due to "low census." This is the only hospital I've ever worked at that allows ER nurses to float to the ICU. 09/18/2020 Housing was approximately 18 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Bella Vita. Housing was located in city of Las Vegas. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I rented an apartment through Las Vegas Turnkey Apartments. The price was decent for Las Vegas (especially considering that my contract lined up with the WSOP, which drives up prices). It had all the amenities I needed and was close to the Strip.
- I worked in the Labor and Delivery department(s) in the hospital. This was my first travel assignment and I felt welcomed from day one! The nurses are very used to having travelers and grateful for them. The hospital is fairly new (not two years old yet) so everything looks really nice. They are getting busier and busier but we had slow nights too (right now about 100 deliveries a month). They are also level 1, soon to be level 2. Premature labors get sent out only if stable. So you could be delivering a premie (happened to me once). Everyone is close knit and teamwork is awesome! Cerner is the charting system, which I strongly disliked because I came from using Epic which is more streamlined and easier to learn. There is always a laborist in house. All and all very good place to work, especially for a first time traveler like me. 06/13/2018 Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Las Vegas. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. My Airbnb was awesome 2 blocks away from Fremont Street and 10 mins from the Strip. Only a 15 minute drive to work. Central and really close to everything.
- I worked in the IMC/ICU department(s) in the hospital. Always understaffed, pt assignments not given by acuity but by room number, so you could have four train wrecks if you're in the IMC. NOC shift mainly all travelers. house supervisors micromanage both the CN and floor nurses. Many of the docs treat nurses very poorly. Admits brought to the floor without nurse getting report, and no notification that the pt has arrived.
In my opinion this is facility is currently unsafe and places the nurses license at risk. 04/10/2017 Housing was approximately 25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Summerlin. Housing was located in city of Summerlin. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Rented a room from a fellow travel nurse. Neighborhood pool, close to stores, lots of places to choose from to eat.
- I worked in the Labor and delivery department(s) in the hospital. The nurse manager is bipolar. Travelers get abused by the staff. The other nurses skills are lacking and borderline scary. Doctors are nice enough but they don't care about patients. 02/27/2017 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Traverse Point Condos . Housing was located in city of Henderson . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Gated community.
