  • I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. The MDs do not have a very good rapport with their nurses and appear to have a much higher level of the "Handmaiden" idea of service expected to them. Be prepared for ALOT of cultural differences and I think this has a lot to do with the way the surgeons treat their nurses. The manner of anesthesia coverage is done is rather confusing as each anesthesia doc is "independent" and arrives whenever they want...keeping the surgeon waiting an unreasonable amount of time. Once the anesthesiologist arrives, it a "hurry, hurr, hurry" attitude and gets to a point of a lack of patient safety. I felt slammed from one case to another once the surgeon/anethesiologist arrival times were worked out. The circulator has virtually no say so in what happens in the communication between the MDs and circulator, they just bring in the patient to the room even though preparations are still being made for the following case, and this is NOT because the circulator is taking a long time in between cases. The hospital has very old equipment and not enough for each room, although cases will be scheduled for each room (there are only 7 OR suites). There is an overall feeling of constant stress and that the staff are unhappy. A lot of staff interpersonal problems not just with each other but with toward their travelers also. The travelers really have to support each other as the staff do not have much interaction with them on a friendship level. Administration support is aweful, although the OR manager is very personable, but limited in what can be accomplished because of poor admin support. Hospital parking is on the street surrounding the hospital for numerous city blocks. Even the full time employees must wait months for a space in the garage. 11/08/2006
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was apartments are independently owned and/or rented by property managers. Housing was located in city of Honolulu (Waikiki). On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Usually parking is off street and difficult to find a space if you work late in the evening. Parking is usually full after 6 pm.
