- Cockroaches 05/25/2013 I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. Heavy call , lots of staff turn over Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Laurels. Housing was located in city of Arlington. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2.
- Housing not needed. 01/30/2012 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of Dallas. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I worked in the Oncology department(s) in the hospital. I worked on the 7th floor which is Oncology and MS. Staff was great on night shift, I took turns floating with staff. Great travel experience.
- I worked in the liver/renal transplant department(s) in the hospital. Everything is dependent on their COWS (computers on wheels). From assessment documentation to medication administration. If they go down, and your patient needs something like pain medicine; or you get an admission, too bad - you have to wait until the computer comes back up to do ANYTHING. Also, they do not have lab techs - trust me if you are spoiled on not having to worry about drawing like I have been this is a HUGE deal. I now make it a point to hug any random lab tech I see. Also about 1/3 of the time we worked without a PCT/CNA; which means not only are you the nurse and the lab tech, but the nurse assistant as well. They also seem to have a lot of 'check points' in place in the name of Q&A; one of the assistant coordinators seemed to always be calling people on the mat about various things; documentation, flow records, medication administration tardiness, ect. Maybe if she had pitched in to help turn people and take them to the bathroom while we were all drawing blood, taking vitals and being the nurse - people wouldnt have fallen, turns would have been completed and documented, ect. 04/14/2008 Housing was approximately 12 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Madison at Cedar Springs. Housing was located in city of Dallas. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Housing was good, all the travelers are put next the road out front or the Tollway but thats really to be expected.
- I worked in the critical care department(s) in the hospital. Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. Housing was located in city of Dallas. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2.
