  • I worked in the TICU/MSICU/CCU department(s) in the hospital. My first contract. I was offered a contract without an interview. Me and another traveler (through a different agency) both thought we were going to be hired into the ICU (since our agencies thought TICU was ICU - WRONG!). TICU is the step down unit which is where we were primarily based and floated to ICU as needed. I was able to work in the TICU, MSICU, and CCU. MSICU and CCU were both ok (and ICU's) but TICU was always understaffed and insanely busy to where I felt we weren't able to take good care of the patients there. One time I called three rapid responses in one week (all legit ones). One was because my patient was decompensating and WE LITERALLY COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHO THE DOCTOR WAS! I have so many stories. The paging system at the hospital is obsolete and dangerous. I digress. The nurses in all the units were WONDERFUL. Aside from the craziness, I was treated very nice there by staff. Doctors were ok and the NPs but rude. Management was another issue. I had a stretch of three insanely busy days in one of the ICUs. With four hours left in my last of the three days, the manager took me aside and pointed out that I had hung an antibiotic a few hours late (things were crazy busy and there were issues with pharmacy). I explained the situation but she wasn't having any of it then proceeded to tell me every little minor thing I did wrong during that stretch of days. She then said that she had no choice but to "let me go". Um...what?!?! This was the same manager who extended my contract and never ever brought any issue to me (big or small) during those months to my attention. Oh, I also had to finish out the last four hours of my shift or I would have been seen as abandoning my patients. That same day, there were four full time (non-traveler) positions posted - IRONIC. I'm also a do not hire for the entire Sutter system. I worked my butt off for these fools for 4 months. I feel sorry for the nurses there. 02/05/2018
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Travelers Haven. Housing was located in city of San Francisco. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing was insanely expensive to live in San Fran. I lived in Oakland to save money before my contract was cancelled.
  • I worked in the Operating Room department(s) in the hospital. The positive about this Operating Room was that the surgeons are very skilled and truly care what's happening to their patients in reference to surgery. Excellent Surgeons. The hospital is located in a safe neighborhood with restaurants and shopping near by. Another positive is that the rate for this hospital seems to always be a good high rate. The negative is the Management team and permanent staff. This OR is beyond incompetent in the area of management. The permanent staff has some of the worst attitudes which is probably why there is more travelers than regular staff. The manager will lie to your face while pretending to be an advocate for patient safety and staff morale is extremely low. A lot of this staff does not have any experience outside of the walls of this one operating room, and thinks that there is only one possible way to perform task. If the manager doesn't like you she will ask you to go float at another campus or give you the worst possible schedule. She goes out of her way to make sure you don't succeed or attempt to renew. The evening charge nurse harasses the staff calling them names and screams at people calling them idiots and morons, all the while she is supposed to be in a leadership position. The are by far the WORST leadership disaster I have ever seen. The anesthesia staff brings coffee and food into the O.R and eat behind the drapes. People don't wear their mask in the O.R when the sterile field is open. I wouldn't be surprised if the Joint Commission came and shut them down because of all the hygiene issues, cluttered hallways and wrong site surgeries performed. ( One particular Surgeon who is exempt from the list above) 08/05/2017
