- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Daily rounding not a plus. Very intimidating and nothing is accomplished that the nurse couldn't call the doc about anyway. The biggest hassel about the rounding was the time it took away from the patients. Parking was OK, they were doing construction when I worked there so I'm sure it's better now. There was a good variety of patients and the severity was enough to keep my skills up. Intensivists were great! Some core staff was friendly, others (mainly in managment) not as much. Overall, I enjoyed it and would return. 09/27/2013 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Alpine Apartments. Housing was located in city of Anchorage. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Positives: I had to stay in these apartments because it was one of the few, if not only one, that allowed 2 dogs. It was great for the dogs. A park with walking trails right outside the apartment. Also it was very close to the hospital. I put 5 miles on the survey but it's probably closer. I could get to work in 5 to 10 minutes. Negatives: The apartments do not have air conditioning and it gets uncomfortably hot in the apartment. We had to keep the windows open. It felt like 90% of the residents were smokers so I could smell cigarette smoke constantly. The smokers were a large problem. I've NEVER experienced smoke-smell that bad. Also, the mattress was horrible! Like a big sink hole! I called and asked twice for a replacement and never recieved one. Also, these apartments are right off the highway on a one way road so it's difficult to get going in the other direction.
- Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was the highlands. Housing was located in city of anchorage. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. 12/17/2011 workout room is small and equipment is almost always broken. insulation between apartments is terrible. you can hear everything. size of apartment is good, very large closet and provided washer and dryer
- I worked in the surgery department(s) in the hospital. Not a bad place to work 12/05/2010 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was I forget. Housing was located in city of anchorage. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. The housing was dirty and run down, but most of the apartments there were.
- I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. The ICU was the most maudlin unit I have ever worked in. The manager is very mentally ill and rules over the low- morale staff with intimidation. Those she cannot intimidate, she dislikes. A traveler must "luck" into a good assignment because they repeatedly get the long term vents awaiting tx to a long term facility. They even check the garbage cans to see if one has eaten anything at their work area in the mornings. it was the only assignment in 10 years I could not bring myself to do any overtime at. 08/29/2008 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Individual housing. Housing was located in city of Anchorage. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5.
- I worked in the PICU department(s) in the hospital. Orientation is excessive. Staff are great. Get pulled to peds alot. May get pulled to NICU, too. 06/09/2007 Housing was approximately 10 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was a four-plex. Housing was located in city of Anchorage. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. There are a lot of apartments and condos in Anchorage, but not a lot of nice areas in the city to live. Can be very difficult to find housing with pets.
- I worked in the PICU department(s) in the hospital. 11/30/2006 Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Woodridge condos. Housing was located in city of Anchorage. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Incredible views of a lake and snow capped mounains. Nice newer condos. Very comfortable
