  • I worked in the PCU/MS department(s) in the hospital. This was my first travel assignment, so I wasn't sure what to expect. This hospital was absolutely terrible to work at and seasoned travelers agreed that this was there worst travel assignment to date. There were 65+ learning modules completed on your own time prior to starting. Multiple modules didn't pertain to my area of work. Ratios were 1:6 and a mix between M/S and PCU. Charge RNs did not look at acuity when making assignments. There was no team work on the floor. Aside from a few techs and a couple docs, the staff is rude and not helpful. Definitely not travel friendly. Was told by multiple patients "people come here to unexpectedly die." Cerner charting. Always short on portable monitors and IV pumps. 09/05/2019
  • Housing was approximately 50 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was villagio . Housing was located in city of Tempe. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I stayed in Tempe so I could be closer to a big city.
  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. This was my 8th travel assignment and I have never felt so unwelcome in my entire career. 65+ learning modules completed on your own time prior to starting. During orientation I had to drive 2+ hrs to many different sites. Admin assistant said to me “it costs a lot of money to hire travelers and we want our money’s worth, it’s just business”. Felt like nothing more than a number. “16 bed” ER with 5-7 hallway beds and a fast track area with only chairs that holds 15 pts plus a back room with 4-5 pts, so more like a 43 bed ER crammed into a space made for 16. With 10-30 pts in the waiting room at all times and heavy ambulance volumes.. Pts are not bedded based on acuity so often times the workload is incredibly unsafe. No privacy or comfort for pts. Inpatient/obs/psych holds for literally days. Neighborhood is very underprivileged. Aside from a few techs and a couple docs, the staff is rude and not helpful. Definitely not travel friendly. RNs transport pts and there is no tube system so you have to walk all specimens to lab. Rarely got a lunch break and when I did it was only if I knew my pts would be okay for 15-30 mins because there was no one to cover lunches ever. Canceled traveler shifts at least once a week and some contracts canceled completely due to “low census” even though this is the busiest ER I have ever worked in and I have worked in level 1, level 2, level 3 trauma centers and been an RN for 7 years. Bare bones staffing always. I was instructed to do self scheduling and then got the exact opposite of what I requested. Scheduled almost every Saturday. Flu + pts in a fast track hallway chair. Management most of the time didn’t even acknowledge my presence. Cerner launchpoint charting. Trauma activation pts in hallway beds. Ambulance pts lined up on stretchers waiting for rooms for 30-60 mins at times. If bigger Banner hospitals in Phoenix are full you hold transfers for 12+ hrs. ICU holds with your other rooms still full. Ratio is 1:4-5 on main side and 1:8 in fastrack and they put ESI 3s in fast track with full work ups and admit holds in fast track. Always short on portable monitors and IV pumps. Pts in waiting room for 6 hrs with no standing orders. Many pts from corrections facilities and border patrol. Would be very beneficial to speak Spanish. Bomb threat in Triage my first night and we had to evacuate half the ER. I will say security is more than other places I have worked, they are armed and have dogs. Staff cars broken into in parking lot. 03/11/2019
  • Housing was approximately 8 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Air bnb . Housing was located in city of Eloy, AZ. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Section of casa grande right off I-10 is built up and seems nice but everywhere else is terrible
  • I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. The hospital staff in the OR were mostly great people they are just not listened to and therefore, they are frustrated. Many have worked there for YEARS not because they want to but because they have no where else to go. This is the only hospital in this town. They do not wish to commute 45 minutes so they stay there. It's sad. They tolerate the nonsense from their director who needs to be unthroned. They are backed up in no way by their OR manager which is sad. This OR is filled with brand new OR circulators who need guidance but are left alone to figure it all out on their own. 11/21/2017
  • 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 3. Do not go here in the winter months because housing will be outrageous. In the summer when its literally 123 degrees you can find places to rent because there are no out of towners.
