  • I worked in the Float Pool Stepdown department(s) in the hospital. Stony Brook is a mess. The staffing office is unprofessional from the secretary Gwen who hates her job to the evaluation sheets where they require a charge signature every night. Overburdened with paperwork. Staff nurses always arriving late. Disgruntled employees who are the lowest pain in Long Island. Basically it is a teaching hospital who has a huge nurse turn over ratio. Short orientation, lets hope your preceptor is good because mine was not. I think she learned more about cerner from me that vice versa. I wont be returning. Treat your guests helping out with Covid graciously. Next time around they might not come back! 07/06/2020
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was coram commons. Housing was located in city of coram. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3.
  • I worked in the ICU float department(s) in the hospital. Agree with a previous post that if you need structure, do not go here. The nursing staff has been great! Very welcoming and helpful! However, the orientation process and staffing office are so unbelievably disorganized - you will be given multiple answers to questions (depending on who you ask) and told many different things you do and do not have to do to get paid. Make copies of EVERYTHING - they loose your paperwork! Be prepared to get there at least 30 minutes early and stay 15 minutes late (of which you do not get paid for) to get where you need to go and get in your paperwork each shift. It’s nauseatingly overkill with the paperwork they require. They also have a work week that runs Thursday to Wednesday which screws with a traditional Sunday through Saturday pay week! I’ve been scheduled on a 4 shifts one week and 2 shifts the next because of the way they schedule and they will not change it (been told their contract is 6 shifts in 2 weeks and I’ll have to work out my pay with my company); get this worked out in your contract prior to signing!!! I’m still on assignment and the only reason I’m sticking it out is the money (COVID critical rate) and the nurses - they are awesome and so grateful for the help! Just very disappointed that such a large, traveler-heavy hospital doesn’t have their s**t together when they’ve been doing this for a long time. 05/12/2020
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was None - got my own. Housing was located in city of Coram. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Private housing
  • I worked in the ICU Float Pool department(s) in the hospital. I would say they are traveler friendly only because they need you, so they will try to work with you. If you did not like the schedule they provided or the assignment for the day, they’d do what they could to fix it. The staff is all disgruntled and just looking for a way to leave, so it makes for a negative work environment. Parking is horrible. There are not enough spaces for all the staff so you park where you can, and risk a ticket. They started a valet server ice for employees as I was leaving and it seemed to work to avoid the tickets. You spend a lot of time in the ER taking holds and it is not fun. No ER physician will look at an admitted patient and no ER nurse will help you if you need it, you always have to call the floors. Overall, if you can just go with the flow, it’s an ok assignment. If you are one who needs structure and consistency, I’d pass. 01/04/2019
