- I worked in the emergency department department(s) in the hospital. I worked here in the summer. It is beautiful place, especially if you love the outdoors. Great hiking and camping and only a couple hours from the ocean. It is a small town so if you like a city type atmosphere this is not the place to go. The hospital staff is very friendly. I would recommend this hospital. It was a great place to work. 10/19/2016 Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a . Housing was located in city of n/a . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Housing is harder to get in the summer because the summer visitors. Word of mouth is the best way to find a place to stay. The hospital staff is very helpful in suggesting places and connecting you with people in the area that are renting.
- I worked in the IMC department(s) in the hospital. PT safety is not a priority. Assignments not by acuity, arcane charting system. 1:1 sitters not available ever, use restraints. Travelers fit into schedule to fill holes. Very under staffed 12/11/2015 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was RV. Housing was located in city of Lake Havasu. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. Travel in my own RV
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Technologically this place is antiquated! The EMR they use is HMS, which is exclusive to Lifepoint facilities. The system is not user friendly and cumbersome to say the least. There is a lot of unecessary triple and quadruple charting areas that need to be addressed. I also have never worked in a critical care setting where trach tie holders are used as invasive pressure line transducers. There is a complete lack of modern technology continuity, some of the beds in use are still from the 80's. Half of the units call light and Code Blue buttons aren't operational, so patien's are given bells to use WTF! There are multiple safety issues that need to be addressed. If you like OT then this is your hospital, since you are required to work at least one shift every other week, but you could literally work everyday if you wanted to. They will also call or text you at like,0130 to ask you if you want to come in early or work that day. No rhyme or reason to their scheduling process here. Also you no something is very wrong when they ask you to become a permanent staff member on day one of your contract. Turnover here is high, solely because permanent staff are worked to death. 03/13/2014 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was a private rental. Housing was located in city of Lake Havasu. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. If you do decide to take a position here during "snowbird" season, do go through a realtor, and do expect pay an exhorbatant amount for rent.
