Arnold Palmer in Orlando

  1. Has anyone worked or is there anyone currently working at Arnold Palmer Women's and Children's in Orlando? I just interviewed for an assignment there to start after the New Year and want to know what their PICU and CVICU is like. Traveler friendlyhospital? RN: Pt ratio? I have my contract but haven't signed it yet b/c there are a few things I'm questioning. One is there uniform policy: RN/LPN can only wear white, royal blue, and navy blue. Is that mean solid scrubs only or can they have prints but the background be one of those colors?

    Then there is this 36 or 40 hours per week clause and that travelers may need to float to other units at other ORMC facilities to meet the required hours. I'm Peds only...I don't feel comfortable floating to an adult unit in a sister hospital that could be across town. I mean if I have to float, do they call me to tell me where to go or do I find out where I end up when I show up at my contracted hospital.

    Any information greatly appreciated. I'm posting this thread in the Florida forum as well.
