  • I worked in the Med/Surg department(s) in the hospital. Orientation can be very difficult to get into. They do not have many travelers and do not have orientation often. It can be very disorganized due to the vendor they use (AMN). I floated between 2 different Med/Surg floors. Often had 6-7 patients during dayshift. Staff was always very friendly. Techs can be difficult to find. The hallways are split in odd ways and it makes it difficult to find help/very difficult to find help for when in the Medication room. They use Vocero which is difficult if you do not know your co-workers names. Unit managers were extremely friendly and helpful. parking is ample and free. 2016-2017 02/16/2018
  • Housing was approximately n/a 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 5. Housing can be pricey. But it is close to DC and Baltimore.
  • I worked in the emergency department(s) in the hospital. very poor communication among ED staff as well as with ancillary departments. ED practitioners will literally be sitting beside you and instead of asking you to go update vitals or can you help with this or that will put an order into the system (EDIS/Allscripts). They hold inpatients in their Peds ED as there are no admission pediatricians, only the ED Peds docs (who are also responsible to go upstairs for a complication in their L & D area). Peds department routinely has over 4:1 ratio with little to no help. Not unusual for Peds RN to have no tech/RN help and 7 or 8 patients. Locked 5 bed Psych unit that has good support from inpatient side and from hospital Police staff. ED staff just simply do not help each other. EMS and pts from waiting area placed into room with no notification and no report from charge nurse or triage nurse. Just beginning rapid medical exam process in triage with NP/PA sitting in on triage and has lots of difficulty right now (not unusual for 20+ min door to triage times with as little as 5 or 6 in waiting room). On the upside, if you are looking for a geriatric heavy pt load with low volumes after 11pm, this place may be just your fit. Not very high volumes or acuity. Lots of level 3 workups.... Cost of living in area is high and traffic congestion is rampant. Not much to do in area unless you go to DC or Baltimore, both of which are about 30-45 minute drive. Has Metro bus service literally to front door of hospital. 08/26/2015
  • Housing was approximately na mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was na. Housing was located in city of na. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. provided our own housing

  • I worked in the ICU/IMC department(s) in the hospital. Travelers were not treated very well by a couple of different people during orientation. EKG test had some definite wrong information and based on not agreeing with their EKG interpretations, they tried to move me to med-surg. I had the feeling they were desperate for med-surg nurses and were deliberately setting up the ICU travelers to fail in order to have them work in med-surg. Some staff members are very friendly, others not much so, but almost all will describe the hospital as "disorganized"...many changes of management and unclear policies. Not much orientation for anyone (staff or travelers) to new IV pumps and new computerized documentation. Pharmacy is either very good or completely useless depending on who's there: running out of pressors and such and having to make multiple phone calls to get them. It seems to run rampant that an awful lot of people at this hosp just don't critically think, ranging from some of the docs to some of the nursing staff......things that make no sense go on for days until questioned. Workload far from overwhelming. Support staff generally quite good when available. Can be very difficult to solve a problem when something's not routine: getting a Clinitron bed took 4 days. Been asked to extend but am moving on. 10/22/2007
  • Housing was approximately NA mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was NA. Housing was located in city of NA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. *IGNORE HOUSING RATING* Housing not applicable to me but have heard others travelers having a difficult time with getting housing in the area due to extremely high cost of living. I've heard of one person commuting 26 miles each way to stay at a Super8, but also know of 2 others staying somewhat more locally and are happy with their housing. This is definitely something to look into before accepting a contract here.
