I was just offered a position at Santa Rosa Memorial and wanted to know if any of you have had experience with this facility. From my Internet searches, it sounds like the RNs there went on strike a few years ago due to slashed benefits, and there was a post by someone on this site, in 2012, warning to stay away from the hospital.

If you guys have any experience with SR Memorial, please feel free to share! Kind of wish I had the foresight to research the organization before the interview, but oh well.

Hello rnbay2017, the place is full of politics, elevated stress levels among the nursing staff, and recently the hospital brought in large groups of travel nurses. Many travel agencies right now offering start dates of October 2017 for thirteen week assignments at this hospital. From what my best friend who is working as a travel nurse there now says, be prepared as the nurses are discussing with the union for a "potential strike" in September 2017. So, there seems to be many issues related to staffing, wages, benefits that are still very problematic.
Wow, that is extremely disconcerting. Thank you so much for giving me insight into the facility! Would you happen to know what unit your best friend works on?
