  • I worked in the Emergency Department department(s) in the hospital. I have been traveling for almost 3 years in ER and have never experienced a hospital/department so poorly managed.I worked on night shift and saw the management act like high school kids and have a favored click of nurses who nearly always have extremely light workloads or are placed as float nurses and then stand around without helping most of the shift. The nurses not in the click, who are mostly new grad nurses and travel nurses take care of around 80% of the patients and are worked like slaves with no help. The click nurses and even most of management are fairly inexperienced and lazy or frantic most of the time while very arrogant. Lazy and arrogant in healthcare is a dangerous combination! I was put out of California mandated patient ratio multiple times. Once I received 4 untriaged ambulances from a MVA at the same time with absolutely no help. I was put in many dangerous situations due to none other than laziness on the part of management and staff nurses. The procedure for placing patients in rooms involves no communication from triage/charge or another staff member. Oftentimes I happened upon unstable patients in my rooms. Once when I was working in a back corner, a patient was brought to me without warning, who hadn't been triaged or eyed by a single staff member. They ended up being a tier/level 1 trauma with a head injury and traumatic amputation of an ear. There were 5 nurses standing around at the main TN station at this time. They also violate union break laws every day. Throughout my contract I received only 4 15 minute breaks, I sometimes returned from my lunch to find that the "break" nurse had abandoned my patients and they had been left unattended. I often received my only break after 9 hours of working. The pay is also subpar for the area.Do yourself/your license a favor and stay away! 11/27/2017
