- I worked in the Float pool department(s) in the hospital. This hospital could be great, if they could get their shit together. Its an hour from a decently sized airport, tucked in the mountains, @ 7200 feet. The weather in Santa fe is beautiful, gets snow in the winter but is sunny all the time (think Denver). The town however is very sleepy. Almost nothing this open late. A lot of placed to eat close @ 8 or 9. There are few bars, and only 1 "sports bar," or so they call it. Hopefully you like Mexican food, because new Mexican food is 90% of the food. As for the hospital, There staffing is terrible, and they can't function without travelers, however they are unable to see the big picture of staffing. They would threaten to cancel staff if they didn't go to nights and then the next week hire new travelers on days... they'd send out texts that they were so short asking people to pick up, at the same time of shorting the travelers contracts. they use "contract" very loosely. We signed a 9 month lease when we came, because we always try to stay for longer than 13 weeks, and if we hadn't done that we would've left.
Also, the ED doesn't call report so you have absolutely no idea what is coming to you, sometimes you don't even know its coming. 03/08/2019 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was self. Housing was located in city of Santa Fe. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2.
- I worked in the Med Surg Float Pool department(s) in the hospital. Santa Fe is an awesome town with tons of stuff to do! The hospital wasn't so great. Not my worst assignment to, but definitely not the best. Nurse to patient ratio on night shift was often 7:1. CNAs 10-15:1 depending on staffing. No great overall teamwork, all dependent on who you're working with. Small town "drama" on some units. They use Cerner charting. Cafeteria opens up from 1130-0130 for night shifters which is great! They always need people so lots of opportunity for overtime. I was never called off and could pick up any day of the week I wanted. 11/25/2017 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Santa Fe. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Housing and overall cost of living in Santa Fe is pricey
