Hi...We're currently looking for an assignment in LA. One company just told me that they have one at MLK hospital 35hr/housing/car/travel. I've seen all of the post that say it's a horrible hospital but they are all from 2004. Does anyone have any current infor on this hospital. Did the trauma center close? I know people say its on the "bad side of town" which is relative to the side of town that they grew up on and the population that they are used too. Besides I know where the hospital has to be for them to name it MLK. We are considering taking this assignment (ER and M/S) but just want to know if anyone thinks we would be risking our license....Thanks!

I am an LA County RN. MLK has been reorganized and now has only 48 acute care beds. Only low risk OB and general community hospital stuff, non-trauma ER there right now. Critical care units, trauma and high risk OB are now at Harbour-UCLA. They are also managing MLK.The previous staff has been dispersed to other LAC hospitals. They need to pass survey in August or they will lose all medicare funds. If you're up for the rebuilding challenge go there. The neighborhood is really tough, what kind of housing are you being offerred?

XXXX Of course the travel company will make it sound so good. That's why they are sweetening up the deal with the rental car.
