Caught x-ray techs performing a complete thoracentesis in which a radiologist should have performed. As a result, the patient's lung collapsed due to developing a pneumothorax. It was covered up by the Radiology Director and after this happened I was treated very poorly.
Registered Nurse (RN) (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 17, 2018
A lot of discrepancies in my pay every week. The insurance premiums are next level expensive. There was a lot of shady ness with my recruiter and how money would show up when he wanted it to. They worked really hard at finding you jobs, but I felt I was alone on my assignment with them after things started happening with my contract. Halfway through one contact the unit moved me to another unit per the needs of the facility. They tried to lower my pay by $250/week when I was already mid-contract and depended on my pay. No guaranteed hours. Overall not a good experience.
Sent chocolate for Christmas
Healthcare, recruiter, they try to pressure you to take assignments you don’t eant
MLT Traveler (Former Employee) – Washington State – January 18, 2018
Management is only worried about their bottom line and will pay as little as possible and cut your wages from what you are promised. They believe that travelers are hard up for work and will take what they are given and not complain.

Depending on the contract facility, a typical day at work could be satisfying or unbearable. Some of the more prominent institutions offer a wealth of knowledge and experience. There are management issues almost every where but some issues are more pressing at some facilities than others. Workplace culture closely correlates to the problems of the facility. Again, the hardest part of the job depends upon the facility that one is contracted to. The most enjoyable part of the job is when your recruiter and you are on the same page regarding your expectations, the hospital's and finalizing the contract. In other words, it is imperative that you can trust your recruiter to present all the facts.
Availability of contracts/facilities, freedom to choose, decent pay.
Continuity of recruiters, no advancement opportunities, long hours, negative staff encountered at various smaller facilities.
Great company to work for and very competent recruiters who go above and beyond for their nurses. Highly recommend this agency. This company offers competitive pay and numerous work opportunities all over the country.
Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – May 13, 2017
LRS Healthcare is a nurse staffing agency. I would estimate the office employed around 50-75 people in different sections in cubicles. The office provided free beverages all day (soda, juice, energy drinks etc). Work would usually end early on Fridays so the owner and employees could have a drink and wind down. Coworkers were friendly and managers were approachable.
Great company, recruiter honest, pay is great and deposited weekly
RN, BSN (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – September 24, 2016
LRS is a super travel agency. I was fortunate to have a great recruiter. Honesty is one of the most important traits and whether or not the everything I was told was good news, it was always the truth. I would not be looking at other companies except my personal recruiter is off for a while and I've been unable to find an assignment that fits at this time.
great compensation and deposited weekly, recruiter always available
sometimes takes a few weeks to find an assignment after finishing one
Travel RN (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – July 8, 2016
LRS afforded me the opportunity to travel to various different hospital ERs to learn new practices and procedures. I have gained such vast knowledge, but I am ready to come home to East Tennesee after 3 years of traveling. I want a life of normalcy, stability, and not packing up every 3-6 months to go somewhere else. I have had the opportunity to meet so many different people, work with so many different cultures, and gained many new life long friends.
great experience, good pay
packing and driving every 3 months. No real stability.
Travel Nurse (Former Employee) – Several – July 2, 2016
Worked for them for several contracts & all was as stated. The last contract they shorted me about $3500 (watch your direct deposits). Unfortunately was working in a state where the labor board does nothing. Their Nebraska labor board said I was definitely underpaid but couldn't do anything as the contract was in another state. They kept saying it would be deposited but it never was, then started making all sorts of excuses. Later found out other agencies pay more at the same facilities. Made about $250 more a week at one repeat facility.
