- I worked in the MedSurg/ Tele department(s) in the hospital. The hospital is set to be shut down and rebuilt in a different part of down, so the current state of the hospital is very outdated. They are slowly shutting units down, leaving it very poorly staffed. Medsurg/ Tele average 7 patients on daylight (can't speak for nights, but they seemed better staffed). Nurses do phlebotomy and IV starts so imagine that on top of a heavy 7 patient assignment. Staff is absolutely miserable on the unit and the culture is so backwards. I was told to get used to having the nurses be mean and cranky, and when the manager was informed of the bullying going on, she stated it would probably make if worse if she were to approach the situation so she was just going to let it be. Would not recommend traveling at this hospital, which is such a shame considering it's such a large system within Manhattan. 10/26/2019 Housing was approximately 0.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was air bnb. Housing was located in city of Manhattan. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I found the housing on a spare room website, which is the best and cheapest offer you will get in Manhattan.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I highly recommend everyone to please stay away from this hospital. I worked there from Oct-Jan and I was dying to leave. They use PRISM as their charting system and the only thing you do is chart their assessment. The rest is paper charting (Admission, Flowsheet, Plan of Care). PRISM will not let you know when doctors have placed any new orders, notes, or when any medication is due. If you are late and missed something you will not be told either. Scanners do not work so 1/2 the time you can not scan your medications, and IV fluids are not programmed into the system so you can't scan either. (High Risk of medication error). There are no nurse techs or secretary in the ICU's. You draw your own labs and do your own glucose. Although you are promised 36 hours, you only get paid 34 hours; they make you take 1 hour break. Getting your hours signed by the staffing office is a pain as well. After your last shift you have to go down to the second floor and make a line with the rest of the travelers and agency nurses. After they are ready to see you, if you have more than 34 hours they will refuse to sign your time sheet. I worked there for 3 months and out of this 3 months, I got floated for 2 months straight every day. There are alot of residents and 1/2 the time they don't coordinate with each other. STAY AWAY!! 03/25/2017 Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of n/a. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. Did housing in NJ.
