  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I drove over 2200 miles to start this contract. I was approaching the finish of hospital orientation, day one, when I was given my schedule. The shift listed for me to work was the opposite of what I had signed in my contract. I broached the subject with staffing. They got back to me saying that shift was unavailable, they made some mistake in the handling of my contract and that only the wrong shift was available. Then, shortly thereafter, they came back to me saying actually no positions were available in the unit I was hired for but they could get me to a different department if another traveler agreed to switch day vs night shift with me. I informed them that I had not come to work in said department and would have to decline. My agency got back to me, and staffing, and stated they could get me to another hospital about an hour away. The staffing liaison then proceeded to tell me about how that other hospital was supposed to be closing, while I was there on contract; I felt this person was simply hoping to further stir the pot and upset me more in saying this. Since the first hospital was in the same system as the new hospital I would go to, management agreed that I could stay at the Amador hospital for the computer training I would need at the new facility. I arrived the next day to do so and the same staff person "happened by" and asked what I was doing in the classroom. I explained that they had agreed to my EPIC training. She said, "They don't have the authority to make that decision and you aren't supposed to be here." Obviously I left. The staffing person's name is Kristie and I found her to be very abrasive and obviously the kind of person that wants to see others "squirm." I would never recommend this hospital to anyone as they clearly lure you in and do a bate and switch. Other things I learned when having met some ICU staff, was that there is no Intensivest on night shift. Frequently hospitalist doctors, not pulmonologists, are managing vents. And, the RNs were expected to fully manage the vents; no RT. It was a tiny ICU, only six beds. It was too rural to manage anything as complex as renal failure, CVA's with treatment like TPA as they occasionally had a neurologist but not all the time, or cardiac cath interventions. Its a TINY town with nothing to do, but at least its in the foothills so there is nice scenery. Very hilly there. 03/07/2016
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Pinewoods Apartment Homes. Housing was located in city of Sutter Creek, CA. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. The apartments were nice. Up to three stories. Apparently well maintained. In the single week I was there I had a few maintenance issues but, even after hours, someone was able to help me. Neighbors were pretty nice, too.
