- I worked in the MSP (med surg peds) department(s) in the hospital. I loved Espanola hospital (espanola Presbyterian) so much, I worked on and off there for 2 years as a traveler. Everybody was very friendly. The hospital is relatively new and beautiful. They have Epic comp system. All doctors are very nice except for one, Dr Ryan, who can be a little as....ole at times but still ok. I fell in love with the patients there. Most of them were laid back and very nice. Espanola has a lot of heroin and alcohol pts. They were a little tricky. But still doable. Overall, I loved the hospital and I would go back there again. 07/07/2016 Housing was approximately 25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was San Mateo. Housing was located in city of Santa Fe . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I highly recommend staying in Santa Fe and commuting to Espanola.
- I worked in the Operative department(s) in the hospital. Very disorganized management, NO written department protocols or procedures within the department. Unsafe conditions many times. Poor (broken or very old 01/05/2016 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Private. Housing was located in city of ESPANOLA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I found my own housing, but there is very little available less than 30 minutes from the hospital.
- Housing was approximately 28.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Avarian of Santa Fe. Housing was located in city of Santa Fe. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. 01/31/2013 A little far to go from Espanola, but worth the trip. Clean 1-bedroom. Club house has indoor pool, sauna, hot tub, meeting room. Office staff were great. I was there for 51 weeks!!!
- It's a very small community hospital. I was very comfortable there. I am an adult med/surg nurse. The med/surg adult unit includes caring for pediatric (from 1 day old to 18) and remote telemetry patients, which I had never done before, but the staff is very willing to teach and give on-hands training. The staff there is wonderful and they are willing to work with you on sceduling. They allow travelers to self schedule. I was the only black nurse in the entire hospital which was very different from what I am used to. I come from a very diverse population (East Coast). I was never uncomfortable there. My patients where very fascinated that I was there. All were interested in how I got there and where I came from. I'd go back there in a second if the money were right. I worked in the med/surg/pediatric department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 40 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Tres Casitas. Housing was located in city of Los Alamos. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Housing was very clean. The appliances were outdated. One had to light the oven with a match in order to use it and the refrigerator had one door and the kind with a very small freezer that had to be defrosted. No garbage disposal. No dishwasher.
