  • I worked in the Emergency department(s) in the hospital. This hospital is a great place to work. I loved the doctors. They did not put up with unessecary crap like a lot of ER MDs do and they don't deal out narcotics like candy like a lot of places. they also utilize midlevel providers to their full potential. the hospital sees about 200-250 visits in ER per day but probably 40-50% are low accuity. The hospital is in a bad neighborhood so even though its only a level III ER it gets a lot of stabbings, assaults, gunshot wounds, drunks, and car crashes (people in Houston tend to crash all the time anyway). It also gets a lot of psychs. Most of the time if you were dealing with high accuity patient's your load would be 3 per nurse which is manageable. They complained about being short staffed but its nothing compare to other experiences. Lots of travelers there so you have a good community and the staff love us! Fun people to work with (nights at least). Can get stressful sometimes like anywhere. They uses Cerner to chart which is combersom. 02/05/2015
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was found my own housing. Housing was located in city of Cypress. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I found my own housing by renting a room from a guy on a golf course for $550/month including utilities. Great deal. But I'd recommend living inside the belt way (I-610) closer to downtown. Don't live near the hospital!
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Extended Stay. Housing was located in city of Houston (northeast). On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. 07/13/2012
  • The exact area of this facility was not very secure (right off exit of Route 45). Doors were left propped open with rocks and often kids/teens were seen in the facility. My car was broken into but nothing taken because nothing valuable was in it. The lock was compromised unfortunatly. I wish I had chosed a place closer higher up in the community area where was safer. The Woodlands is a much better community and is also close to the hospital. It pays to really check after agencies assign you to a place. Not too fond of Extended Stay places.
