  • I worked in the medical surgical department(s) in the hospital. I have been traveling several years and have never experienced such a work load as did at this facility. The nurses and staff all wear "walkies" in their ears to communicate w all staff on the unit which means someone or multiple individuals are always talking in your ear & there is NO break from these voices- you wear them with every breathing moment u are on the unit which does not allow nurses to "listen" to patients and in my opinion, it is chronic rudeness & may contribute to errors with your patient as well as create an unsafe environment- as many times they are speaking and someone else is speaking to you on the walkie which I might add is difficult to keep in your ear and malfunctions chronically. Additionally, the nurse manager was not forth coming during interview about patient ratios- which I was told was 5-6 & occasionally "maybe once a month.." she stated "we flex up to 7..but not often.." NO- EVERY DAY it was 1:7 with 4-5 discharges and then admissions back to back- This facility does not, in my opinion, put the needs of their patients first nor their safety as I felt the walkies made patient care difficult and cumbersome w the walkie & constant communication (which is not always for you). The equipment is mostly old and worn out w multiple things malfunctioning each shift- few beds have bed alarms and the IV pumps are so old that I did not even know these pumps were still being used. The facility is undergoing construction at present time and it is horribly noisy most of the shift. The pre employment modules were extensive and took hours to complete (though u are paid for 8 hours to complete them) but still really was not enough time. Overall, I would have never agreed to this contract had the manager been forthcoming about their unit. The pay was definitely not the best (lowest I have ever received) and would not recommend this facility based on my personal experience. 10/25/2019
  • Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was 418 Forcum Street. Housing was located in city of Jonesboro. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. I worked 3 days per week and just booked hotels each week for my work days- but not many places on airbnb were available and the hotels were either pretty disgusting or expensive.
