  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I was a traveler hired for the MICU/SICU/TICU but was only there 4-5 shifts of my entire 3 months there. I was always "floated" to their CVICU/CCU which was also treated as their "step-down" unit. Never floated to the floor. The Good: I enjoyed their unit manager, very professional, friendly, and understanding of everything. Most of the nurses were very traveler friendly, fun to work with. Resident MDs always available for questions. The Bad: As a traveler, you were almost ALWAYS tripled, or had two patients and were open for admission, or just plain admitted every single shift. When your admission came, rarely did you have any help settling the patient once the ER nurse left. The staff nurses were rarely open for first admit. Staff morale was low because the PCC (patient care coordinators) cared more about numbers (CAUTI/CLABSI/FALL) than helping their staff on busy days/nights. The PCCs would sit and audit your charting and call you during your busy shift and say "you haven't done "X" charting yet." I would ask PCCs for help and at times they would flat out tell me "no." Almost everyday there was staff who called out sick, which made staffing even more tough. If it was not for some great coworkers/travelers, it would have been an unbearable assignment. The hospital used CERNER for charting, supposed to undergo an EPIC EMR conversion in the near future. 10/03/2019
  • Housing was approximately 28 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was resided with family. Housing was located in city of Edison, NJ. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I lived with a friend/family member and paid them rent for housing. I lived outside Jersey City.
