Long-Term Acute Care (LTAC)

Nice

PROS:

Great nursing staff. Most are new over the past year after a new CNO was hired. The new CNO and the new CEO have changed the culture here and everyone is very pleased with the outcome. They hve rid this place of the people that should not be here and hitred new staff that have the right attitude and experience.

CONS:

Small community with limited resources. a lot gets ordered by Amazon.

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Great

PROS:

Great nurse : patient ratios. Wonderful place to raise a family. Lots of outdoor activities, including hunting and fishing, or hiking all the trails.

Very remote location. Only able to fly to Wrangell and there is only 2 flights a day in or out. Island is part of a rain forest, so it rains frequently.

One Star

PROS:

None

CONS:

50 years behind in everything including equipment, building and practices. Staffing and scheduling is a nightmare.. hellush on call....be prepared to do it all ... not even a pyxis system.. "Bush medicine band aid station"... not up to date on best practices.

Medical-Surgical (MS, Med-Surg)

Alaska Adventure

PROS:

Small facility. Nurses will work in all areas which include ER, Med/Surg, and LTC. Most of us enjoyed that variety, but a few found it difficult. Yes, finding housing can be a challenge at first. However, I was able to find a nice rental the first week with the help of co-workers. Wrangell is a great community. Reminds me of Mayberry (old Andy Griffin show)
