  • I worked in the CICU department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the CICU department, but I scored the hospital based on my own as well as what I heard from travelers on other units. My experience was good, I enjoyed the unit I was on and there was a very high percentage of travelers. Other travelers (ER and M/S) did not fare as well, and several quit their contracts the first month. On the CICU, many travelers had extended their contracts several times and I did the same. Biggest frustration was that all supplies are locked in the Pyxis so you can't even get a bandaid for your patient without getting into the pyxis. This significantly interferes with efficient patient care. Many of their policies seem to be stuck in the 90's...who still does Hep flushes? and double sign-offs for insulin?? Policies are gradually changing but many are outdated. They use EPIC as the EHR, but one of the lower-cost versions. They were going through a significant administration change and lost many staff but are rebuilding. Valdosta is a nice area, but not much to do here. Overall, if you are a flexible traveler and willing to put up with some idiosyncracies it's worth 13 weeks of your time to give it a try. 07/02/2018
  • Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was my own RV. Housing was located in city of Valdosta. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Many travelers were in RVs, some were in hotels and others rented apartments in the area. There are many options, but this is a college town so you may be fighting for rooms with students during the college term. Plan well ahead.
