- I worked in the PCU/TELE department(s) in the hospital. I worked here one month before I broke my contract. No organization from everything from scheduling to orientation to assignments. Very unfriendly staff- I would go so far as to say hostile. Extremely sketchy ethically. I was told by a charge nurse I had to witness a consent that I DID NOT witness. When I refused, she began yelling at me at the nurses station. Manager was juggling two departments, and flying in on Sunday and out on Friday. A patient with an active GI bleed never had a GI consult for five days, he just kept getting transfused. For five days! Terrible patient management. Very high Asian patient population, 80% spoke no English, so interpreters needed for most interactions. High crime area, car alarms going off and ignored all the time. My van was broken into in broad daylight in the hospital parking lot. Came off my shift to find it ransacked and my dog gone. Called security, who couldn’t even be bothered to come outside. Called police who said there’s nothing they can do. I never went back. The most horrible contract to date. 11/11/2019 Housing was approximately O mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of N/A. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1.
- I worked in the Emergency Department department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the ER for 10 months. The only reason I extended was because I was making bank here. The staff were super slow to warm up. Treated travelers terrible at first. Huge change in management and 37 travelers were in the department at one time (this should show you how desperate they were). Management fired multiple staff, leaving many openings and inappropriate staffing. Most charge nurses were fantastic on day shoft, the night shift charge nurses were worthless. Staff morale was terrible due to all these changes. The 2 ER managers were also travelers. Did not allow travelers to care for critical or trauma patients. You will lose your skills here. Location was in a bad part of town. Be prepared to speak Spanish and learn Vietnamese. There are no interpreters. Hospital is nice in the new Towers that were built. The ER is super outdated and nasty. Only a few good housekeepers. Parking is not a problem as long as you are 7am or 7pm shift. Very disorganized during orientation. The left hand doesn't know what the right hands doing during orientation. Docs are very nice to staff. I trust them. PA's are great as well. THe scheduling is done by the office manager. He has no regard for your contracted days. They will place you on any day and tell you they will cancel your contract if you ask to change. Nurse to pt ratio is 4:1. 05/27/2017 Housing was approximately 7 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was The Woods Apartments. Housing was located in city of San Jose. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Fatastic housing. It was a 6 month lease, then changed to month-to-month. $2850 for 2 br/2 1/2 bath. The apt was spotless when we moved in. Beautiful area and grounds. They charge for any scratch, though. Be prepared to not receive your deposit back.
- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. This hospital was horrible. It was inhospitable to travelers. the staff was rude and not friendly. I had issues with my paycheck multiple weeks in a row. 03/19/2014 Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was markham apts. Housing was located in city of cupertino. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I did not take the housing offererd by the travel company, I stayed with a friend.
- I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. Very cramped ED. Ortho storeroom was a critical care patient room! Not a "bad" ED, but OK! 07/25/2007 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Fairway Glen. Housing was located in city of San Jose. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Not too bad! Mostly clean apartment. Small work-out room, pool and hot tub.
