  • I worked in the Tyler 1 department(s) in the hospital. Nurses and techs at the Retreat absolutely hate working there. When I was at the facility, there was a lot of talk of strikes, nurses and techs would regular say things and leave messages on the doors pull of profanity about the hospital. It's a very difficult atmosphere to be in for too long because of the negativity. Core staff were frequently very unhappy with travelers being there but a lot were still nice. Several managers had less nursing experience than the new grad nurses (tasked with being charge nurse) and frequently went on vacation. Apparently the core staff there are required to join the union and help regular union meetings. Travel nurses received the news updates about agreements made between the union and BR administration which is nice but also a bit daunting when you'll only be at a facility for a temporary term. Shifts are 8-hour (x5) each week and Tyler 1 does not allow travelers to do double shifts so that's a full 5 days of work a week with an additional day for OT unless you agree to an OT double shift on another unit. Pay at the BR was phenomenal so it makes 13 weeks worth it but for me, not worth it enough to extend past the 13 weeks! 07/28/2019
  • Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Eco House. Housing was located in city of Brattleboro. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Eco House had each traveler renting a room in the house and travelers each had their own bathroom. It was a beautiful house with a washer and dryer in the basement, rooms were fairly cheap and home was about a 7 minute drive from the hospital.
