  1. Anyone know much about working in the ER at Mercy San Juan Hospital in Sacramento?
    Thanks, thinking about a travel assignment there.

    Well I am not a nurse YET, but I lived in Sacramento for 8 yrs. and heard from many many people that they are always overwhelmed. Very busy, ratios are bad. Let me just say that a friend of mine was in labor and they had no beds so they told her to walk till they had a bed available, then when she felt herself, she felt that babies head and yelled for a nurse, the nurse put her on a bed in a broom closet and the baby was born about 10 minutes later. And yes she still got the bill for everything even though she delivered in a broom closet. I don't know how it is now, I'm sure it isn't like that always, but hey when its busy it makes time go by faster. LOL :chuckle
    Hope this helps.

    Don't know about the ER there, but that's where I was born 18 years ago

    It gets VERY hot there, not quite as hot as Red Bluff but pretty close.

    Ive spent many of days at Mercy San Juan. They just went through a big Er remodel a couple of years ago. It's pretty busy. You don't get the "interesting" people that you would get at UC Davis.

    My father was a patient there many times. Staffing was worse than where I work, but now there are ratios. The area is growing rapidly espec North and east of there, and I think there aren't enough ER beds for the growth. They also have become a trauma hospital in last 5 years or so.
