  • I worked in the Med/Surg department(s) in the hospital. I was contracted for their IMCU with a supposed 4:1 ratio, but was only assigned there twice. The rest of the time I worked M/S and routinely had 8 patients to myself. There was no orientation at all. I was not acclimated to the charting system even though I told them up front that I wasn't familiar with it and needed training. The staff was not helpful at all. There are not enough computers for all nurses to scan meds and chart, so I frequently had to wait for a computer to complete my work. You must clock out for lunch breaks, but are expected to keep working without an actual break. There are no creature comforts for the patients like fresh coffee or even a plastic fork when you need one. Parking is far from the hospital and the lighting is poor. LaPorte is not the safest of communities, either. The IU logo is on the building, but they are primarily owned by Community Health Systems which has a poor reputation for not caring about their staff. 08/08/2017
  • Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Hotel. Housing was located in city of LaPorte. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. None
