- I worked in the ER, InPT and LTC department(s) in the hospital. First off Wrangell is a VERY small town in SE Alaska. A town of about 2400 ppl. Lots of activities IF you are a hiker or like to fish, other than that you are out of luck. As the other reviewer noted the hosp hours are strange, 4-4. and also as mentioned, there are two grocery stores that close at 6p. BUT the great thing is that they both deliver. So all you had to do was call with your order and CC # and they would bring the groceries to you. Very small, very friendly, very very safe town. This is the type place you come to for a break. Work load is not bad. my background is ER and ICU. I have never worked a LTC in my life, but you are expected to rotate through all areas. All in all the experience was not bad. The staff is friendly and do things like loan out their cars (you are on an island, so not like it's going to be stolen) It is an old facility and basically it is what it is, not fancy, but the staff care about their pts, because the pts are their neighbors. So in a nut shell, small friendly beautiful town. Very small, Outdated hospital, but friendly staff. Not high acuity pts (they are shipped out) 07/18/2015 Housing was approximately 05 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was IDK. Housing was located in city of Wrangell. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Nice 2 BR, furnished with utilities paid except for Cable and Internet. Coin operated W/D in basement of building.
- I worked in the ER, Acute Care, LTC department(s) in the hospital. Administeration lies, have no experience in management, and will abuse staff. Was lied to and had to do CNA shifts. CNA work was slave labor. 16 total cares for 2 aides. Luckily stuck to my guns and only did a few. 1 nurse has to work Acute Care and ER. 1 nurse for 16 total cares. Ridiculous hours. Will flip you from 8's middays to night shift as long as you "get 8 hours of sleep". Have to walk back to apartment after night shift ends (at 4am not 7am) so there's no cabs running. The only 2 supermarkets in town are only open 8-6 during the week, 10-5 on Saturdays, and closed Sundays. So good luck evening and night shifters. Restaurants are very limited, expensive, and don't stay open late. Wrangell is beautiful though. 02/01/2015 Housing was approximately 0.5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Not sure if was in town . Housing was located in city of Wrangell. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Rent is paid by the hospital but cable and Internet is on you.
