  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. This hospital was staffed with many travelers, so they were very open and accepting to travelers. The hospital itself (Meditech charting/HCA in particular) seems very behind the times and also seem to have their priorities strangely tiered. 05/23/2017
  • Housing was approximately (n.a) mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was (found my own). Housing was located in city of (n.a). On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Found my own
  • I worked in the med surg 3rd floor department(s) in the hospital. sraff very rude to travelers. I heard " you get paid more so your work load should be heavier " . Manager Tricia Casler is a horrible leader . Very cold , unapproachable . She is known to dislike travelers.Charge nurses are very young new nurses ..they are meek and that way Tricia Casler can dominate and control them . 05/22/2017

  • I worked in the IMC department(s) in the hospital. The Intermediate Care unit at St. Davids was a very challenging unit. The staff are VERY nice and the manager was GREAT. Scheduling was not a problem at all, as they worked with me any time I needed and was very grateful for any shifts I picked up. Patient to Nurse Ratio was 3-4:1, which was not terrible, but sometimes the patient's were rough. As far a help on the unit, you rely on the charge nurse or other nurses. They only had 1 NAC for 22 beds (on night shift) which does make things extremely hard. Thankfully, they believe in team work and helped out a lot. The charting system is Meditech, which is difficult at first, but once you get it, it is not so bad. Overall, it is a fairly good unit; it would just be better if they provided more help at night. 04/28/2017
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of Austin. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. N/A
