- I worked in the Labor and delivery department(s) in the hospital. Super traveler friendly unit. I was allowed to make my own schedule. Everyone was very laid back and friendly, and even on busy days, it never felt overwhelming. 11/30/2016 Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/a. Housing was located in city of Denver. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I lived with a family member.
- I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the OR and my wife worked in L&D. We both had great experiences at this facility. This was our first assignemnt as travelers. Definitely traveler-friendly hospital. Hospital staff and MD's couldnt have been nicer. The only downside was that Denver doesn't pay travelers well. I would highly reccomend this hospital to new travelers trying to get thier feet wet in the profession. 03/28/2016 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Airbnb. Housing was located in city of Denver. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the Organ Transplant 6W department(s) in the hospital. The hospital may be great, but it was nearly impossible to "fit in" with the staff on the 6th floor. They are known as the "mafia" to the rest of the hospital according to other nurses bc of their unwillingness to work with new people. I spoke with other new nurses, many of who were experiencing the same feeling. One RN left every month on 6W, which to me is a high turnover for an academic medical center. I did not experience the same issue while floated to other units, but it did always feel understaffed. The biggest issue, though, were the attitudes of some of the nurses. I typically try to teach/show/help a new nurse rather than spreading animosity amongst the unit. After being picked on and what I felt bullied, I didn't feel the management cared and did anything to change it. They made me feel like it was my fault, so I couldn't wait to move on! 06/18/2014 Housing was approximately 4 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was City Lights. Housing was located in city of Aurora. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Heated pool, gym, gates (that don't work most of the time), very well laid out units, garage available, pet friendly.
- I worked in the Burn/Trauma ICU department(s) in the hospital. Worked at Burn/Trauma ICU 7p - 7A - used some travelers (some been there a while). Very friendly staff, cooperative, helpful, fun group to work with especially the night shift. Assignments are fair. Computer charting (Horizon Clinicals) - not much training given in orientation (mostly learn in unit). Easy to pick up though. Moving towards eMar - Scanning meds. Most burn care done in days and with help of Burn Tech. RNs do own labs and abgs. CRRT common here. 12 beds. Hospital use Kronos for time-keeping. Have to wear hospital specific scrubs for this particular unit (Green). Parking on the street at night is free, $4 for garage. Cafetaria closed at night - vending machines. Mostly order food from outside. Hospital will be moving to new location soon. 03/08/2007 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Sonata at Cherry Creek. Housing was located in city of Glendale. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Apartment is great - very close to UCH. Close to local Bull & Bush Pub/Brewery, Target, Safeway, many eateries, gas stations, post office, library, etc. Very convenient location - close to freeway. Comes with washer/dryer, indoor garage, gated. Secure. No complaints.
