  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. UMC in Southeast DC is horrible. It is a county hospital with minimal funding which is why it sucks. I was warned that this was a difficult place to work and has high volume/ high patient load but I chose to sign because location was important. I have worked in high volume trauma centers but this was next level. Staff are overworked, EMR is outdated, no resources, understaffed, unprofessional. Another traveler on my assignment quit within the first few weeks. I stuck it out and I was fine. It was a difficult assignment but I survived. The staff were welcoming and friendly. I was able to make my schedule. However, if you are used to working in a cookie cutter ED with set ratios, lots of support from management, resources, etc etc. then don't go here. They use an old version of Meditech for charting. It is in a low socioeconomic part of town. Pts are mostly under-insured or uninsured. The patients were also rude. I took the stipend and lived in the city. Its approx 25 min from downtown DC. Overall, it was a good experience to have. If you have thick skin, really want to do DC for your assignment and can't find any assignments at hospitals within the city then its tolerable. 06/17/2019
  • Housing was approximately 6 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was none. Housing was located in city of DC. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. took the stipend
