- I worked in the Telemetry department(s) in the hospital. PCT do minimal work. 03/01/2020 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was NA. Housing was located in city of Gretna. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Not what was advertised or promised.
- I worked in the Emergency Room department(s) in the hospital. They are known to fire people quickly. While I was there 13 weeks 3 travel nurses were fired with in 2 weeks of being there and 5 staff nurses left. A few to travel and a few to different hospitals. You don't scan meds. You use a different charting system than the floor so you are going back and forth when holding patients. 11/10/2017 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was air b . Housing was located in city of NOLA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. N/A
- I worked in the Oncology department(s) in the hospital. Even after Katrina, New Orleans still has plenty to do. I didn't get out much, worked a lot of OT and when off for more than 1 night, travelled to see my family. Hospital staff was great, very supportive. I've been here going on 6 months. Got all the OT I asked for, very flexible with my schedule. Nurse/pt ratio very safe, most of the time had adequate support staff. Some of the staff RN's resented the traveler's, but overall, great place to work. 10/26/2006 Housing was approximately 13 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Esplanade @City Park Apts. Housing was located in city of New Orleans. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Safe area, older complex which claims to be luxury, and according to the locals, at one time, it was. Not now though. Very adequate, though. My biggest issue was safety with the high crime rate in New Orleans now. Only 13 miles from the hospital, but traffic was horrendous. Never can tell how long to allow so usually give self 45 minutes on the way. Often over an hour travel time in mornings going back into the city. Apartments had laundry rooms (small) on each floor, a pool with hours not great for those that work nights; a small gym with sauna. You either have air conditioner or heat, not both, and the management decides which. Maintenance often barges in with no warning, but have worked with me on scheduling things.
