  • I worked in the MSICU & MSIMC department(s) in the hospital. The staff at aspirus is great, most are very welcoming and helpful when needed to be. My biggest complaints are lack of experienced nurses and critical shortages. Administration's main objective here is to make money, "get rid of your experienced staff and hire new". When I worked in the ICU the assignments were always fair, however, the shift lead makes it very well known "AS A TRAVELER, YOU ARE HERE TO BE USED AND ABUSED". She is very rude and certainly cannot support her staff as she doesn't do patient care. She will yell at staff in front of families and is extremely unprofessional. When I worked in the MSIMC I was given assignments that not only were unfair but horribly unsafe. (I wouldn't have any member of my family there as they would die before the staff could possibly get to them, not for lack of trying, just because staffing is that unsafe). I would be given new tracheostomies on full Pressure support vents, along with a team of three other very sick patients. If you want to test your ability to keep your license, then this is the place to be. I haven't talked to a traveler yet that feels safe as a nurse there, nor will they ever go back there. I couldn't wait for this assignment to be done!! 01/26/2018
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was THE 4111. Housing was located in city of WAUSAU. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. The apartment is in close proximity to the hospital, management is very fair and approachable. the neighbors can be a little shady at times and often are noisy with frequent domestic disputes, but nobody ever bother me directly. The rent is very affordable and it includes all of the utilities except for cable and internet. There are many very decent restaurants close by. Snow was always cleared and access to and from never an issue. I would stay there again...If I worked at aspires again, which will NEVER happen.
  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Ashland is a small rural hospital that's partnered with a pair of bigger hospitals in the area. Staff and admin are very friendly and supportive. It's an older hospital that could really use a remodel and some tech updates. The area is beautiful and it's not unusual to see deer and turkeys wandering the streets in town. Ashland itself is a bit of a rich hippy town. There's a small but pretty nice ski area just 45min drive in the winter. ICU is 4 beds, and as usual in a rural hospital, it's mostly PCU-ish patients with the rare ventilator or pressor patient. Lots of sepsis/PNA/DKA/Alcohol withdrawals, and the docs like to keep people in ICU well past when they could be moved to the floor. They like to cross-train their ICU staff to the ED, which I really enjoyed. Their ED was 7 beds, had 1-2 nurses and a tech usually along with the doc. Really quick turn-around most of the time, but being small, could get bogged down with a random rush (probably still less busy than a major hospital). 12/05/2017
  • Housing was approximately 6 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Anjou Club Apartments. Housing was located in city of Talent. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I arranged my own. Anjou Club has a couple nice furnished apartments. They have really good central air (you'll need it in the summer). Covered parking is included and garages are available. Small gym, pool, and tanning bed. The office staff is really nice. The only hitch is they want a cashier's check at move in and a physical check each month. No debit/autopay/etc. I guess the management company is pretty old-school.
  • I worked in the med/surg department(s) in the hospital. My husband and I took this as our first assignment and ended up extending and then coming back for another shorter assignment. All the staff are incredibly helpful and nice. The supervisors are available and always seem to have your back. We definitely would recommend this hospital to other travelers who are considering it. They also give you about 1.5 week orientation and including an intro to epic. There are many outdoors activities within a few hour radius of the town, a handful of national parks and lots of hiking. There are also many great wineries to visit closer by, otherwise we try to avoid the cities. 11/04/2017
  • Housing was approximately 30 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Asante Three Rivers. Housing was located in city of grants pass. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing here, whether it is right in town or in a neighboring town is expensive no matter what. We found our own housing on Airbnb, so that we could accomodate our dogs and lived about 30 miles out from the town.

  • I worked in the MSICU department(s) in the hospital. This place will tell you that they are such high acuity and they are not. Yes they have people on vents and drips but nothing so wild and out of control. What they also do not tell you is if you get any sick pt they take them awak from travelers and give them to the staff nurses. They also do not let you take fresh traumas because they have a person who carries a pager (has to be TNCC certified) and they get to do all the brand new traumas all while you pick up their pts. They also tell you it is a teaching facility but not for anything else but hospital med. So if you work nights prepare youself for trying to sit on your dying pt as long as you can because no one wants you to call the doctor. Not the worse place I have worked just not my favorite. 04/08/2017
