- I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. I'm a Surgical Tech. This was my 2nd assignment here and I extended so technically 3rd assignment. The pay is very good here, probably one of the highest in Florida. And Florida pay is terrbile. The OR has great technology. All the video systems and bovies are on BOOMS where you can move them around. That's very convenient so you don't have to keep wheeling in video towers for every laparoscopic case. The staff there in general are friendly towards travelers. During my first assignment, practically 50% of the staff were travelers. When I left a few months ago, there was only one traveling surgical tech left and no traveling nurses. I think they were trying to get rid of travelers. Most of the surgeons are friendly with a few exceptions, just like most ORs. I got along with just about anyone. There was only one colo-rectal surgeon whom I couldn't tolerate but fortunately for me, I never worked with her much. She was slow and she didn't want you to ever anticipate her needs, which is essentially my job. And you could never listen to music or talk. So basically you would be miserable if you were stuck in a long 4-6 hour case with her. Most ORs have staff in SPD to pull cases. This one does not. So surgical techs and nurses have to pull cases and some times you have to pull your own case because nobody pulled it for you. And their way of pulling cases is hysterical. They put sterile supplies in a garbage bag, instead of in buckets and placed inside a case cart. They don't have those. They also don't have anything to put your dirty instruments in either. So you have to throw a drape over your back table and wheel it to SPD and then transport them onto another table in SPD. Not only is this not efficient but they are subjecting patients and staff with gross, bloody instruments. They also have a shortage of cameras, scopes, light cords, and instrument trays. It's not uncommon to have to ask SPD for something that you will need for your next case because it's not sterile yet. This is something the clinicians are supposed to help the rooms with turning over the room but it's quite rare they actually do. During my 1st assignment, they were severely understaffed so I rarely got relieved on time when 5pm came. Call was pretty heavy with at least one weekend per month and one or two call shifts per week. But my second assignment since I worked 1p-11p shift, I only took the 11p-7a call and it was rare that I ever had to stay or got call back because there was an overnight team from Sunday to Thursday. When I extended my assignment for a 3rd stint, they didn't make me take call at, much to my delight. There are 3 assistant managers/charge nurses. I got along with all of them. Only one who was a bit crazy would constantly harass me. I don't know what her problem was. I was one of the hardest workers there and she was always on my ass. So any time there was a case, I would always volunteer so that she wouldn't be able to harass me. The cafeteria food is by far the worst of any hospital I've ever been. And it's expensive with no discounts for employees. Their pizza may look appealing but it's terrible. I tried to avoid the cafeteria food like the plague. Only thing that's safe to eat is their soup and sandwiches. Good thing about this hospital is that there's no hospital orientation. There wasn't an OR orientation either. I was thrown in the OR and started scrubbing my very first day. That suits me perfectly fine since I hate orientations. It was a small challenge trying to locate supplies in SPD since there's not to help you. 01/25/2017 Housing was approximately 22 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was N/A. Housing was located in city of Ft. Lauderdale. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I found my own housing by Ft. Lauderdale Beach. Awesome location even though the traffic could be bad during rush hour. Steps to the beach. Housing near this hospital is very expensive so not ideal to stay there.
- I worked in the or department(s) in the hospital. always home late, rushed 09/26/2015 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was did not use. Housing was located in city of weston. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. stayed at a friends
- I worked in the emergency department(s) in the hospital. I have never worked in a hospital that was so bogged down in redundant paperwork. Often having to access 2 different computer systems to input the same information over again. In addition to this there is very little supportive staff. Nurses do everything from cleaning patients to filling out the 2 similar yet different billing slips for the visit. NOT A NURSE FRIENDLY ORGANIZATION. In addition nurses are required to wear all white. this works great in the ED. Supposedly this was because the patients can identify the nurses easily but one of the chief officers of the hosptial (a physician) let the truth slip when he said the decision was based on the fact that it looked "cleaner". So run to the Cleveland clinic if you want to practice nursing as it used to be, but I guess you can't expect much more from a "Physician led" (and they brag about that) organization. Supposedly they are going for magnet status. Good luck with that. 02/01/2008 Housing was approximately 9.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was gatehouse on the green. Housing was located in city of plantation. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. housing was somewhat nice on the outside, somewhat run down on the inside. It is a gated community in a so-so area. 9 miles from the hosptial in florida is not close. It took me 4o minutes to get home yesterday.
