- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. This is a very small ICU with a tight-nit group of nurses that are super welcoming and kind to travelers. They transfer quite a few sicker patients to their bigger sister hospital, but you still get some very sick patients. Mostly your basic MICU/SICU crowd, with a lot of etoh withdrawal pt's for some reason. You will get tripled fairly often, and they don't have a stepdown so you can hang on to med-surg type patients forever which is frustrating. Charge nurses are good, though, and there's great teamwork/fair assignment distribution to travelers. The intensivists travel between this hospital and the bigger main hospital, so sometimes they can be hard to get ahold of. They do use TigerText which is nice. The facility is beautiful and new and they have most of the supplies you need despite being smaller. EMR is Epic and scrub color is navy. 06/04/2020 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was airbnb. Housing was located in city of Colorado Springs. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. The area around the hospital is super safe, although it feels a little off by itself from the main city
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Not knowledgeable of new licensing laws, lots of transitions happening, Meditech charting. 01/31/2018 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Carriage house. Housing was located in city of Muskogee. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Affordable, safe, and clean. Super nice landlords. No laundry on site.
- NOT A TRAVEL HAPPY HOSPITAL. IF ANYTHING WENT WRONG THEY BLAMMED IT ON THE TRAVELERS CAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID OF LOSING STAFF. TRAVELERS TOOK THE HEAVY LOAD WHILE THE PERM STAFF SAT AROUND THINKING OF WORK FOR THE TRAVELERS TO DUE. ONE SHIFT I HAD 11 PT WHILE THE OTHER 2 PERM STAFF HAD 4 PT A PIECE. I ALSO CARRIED THE HIGHEST ACQUITY BY FAR. PERM STAFF COMPLAINED ALL THE TIME ABOUT HOW THE TRAVELERS WERE TAKING AWAY ALL THEIR OVERTIME. TRAVELERS PLEASE RUN FROM THIS HOSPITAL. NOT TRAVEL FRIENDLY AT ALL.. I worked in the M/S department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was RESIDENT INN. Housing was located in city of GRAND ISLAND. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. MY COMPANY PUT ME UP IN THE RESIDENCE INN, IT WAS KNOWN FOR BEING A VERY POOR PLACE TO STAY. IT WAS CHEAP FOR MY COMPANY TO PUT ME IN, I WAS SUPPOSE TO GET WHAT EVER WAS LEFT OF THE HOUSING STIPEND, IN WHICH I NEVER RECIEVED A DIME FOR IT. THE PLACE WAS VERY DIRTY AND HAD A REPUTATION OF DRUGS. I HONESTLY JUST SAW CONSTUCTION WORKERS. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE EITHER.
