  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. super nice hospital, ICU has a verrryyy manageable workload, never have more than 2 patients in ICU. there are ekg techs, phlebotomists, support staff, good teamwork 05/10/2021
  • Housing was approximately 18 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Furnished Finder. Housing was located in city of Grover Beach. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. definitely recommend living in Grover Beach or Pismo instead of in Santa Maria. It's worth the commute and the 20min drive is beautiful anyways! Surrounded by vineyards, beaches, hiking, biking, you name it. You're super close to SLO for more restaurants, bars, etc. when you live north of Santa Maria also.
  • I worked in the CCU department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the CCU which is the only ICU in the hospital. We got fresh hearts and since it was basically a general ICU we got anything ICU-worthy. The acuity is pretty low. It's a level 3 working towards a level 2. It's a pretty cush job except in the summer it seems like you are floated to tele a lot which is a hell hole at this hospital. You can also get floated to their sister hospital in Arroyo Grande, I was floated there once and it wasn't bad. An 8 bed ICU where the acuity is even lower. Personally I got pretty bored at this hospital, a lot of the patients are tele over-flow. However, staff is nice and will generally help you. It's hard to get good pay here no matter what agency you look at. Plus it can be pretty expensive to live here on the central coast. For some people this would be a great assignment- I just got bored here and was tired of floating. 04/27/2019
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Oceano. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
  • I worked in the NICU department(s) in the hospital. The NICU especially was extremely traveler-friendly. Many of the nurses are former travelers who stayed on permanently. Staffing was fantastic, as is mandated by the state of California. Santa Maria itself is not the most interesting area, but it is a very short drive to some beautiful beaches and cool areas so it was well worth it. I would go back in a heartbeat! 09/06/2018
  • Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was airbnb. Housing was located in city of Santa Maria. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
