- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. I worked in the ER. I worked with the ER manager my first 3 nights before being "cut loose." The manager did a very good job orientating me to the department and the hospital. The ER was a great place to work with all great staff. I got along with everyone without any qualms. There were some busy nights and some slow nights. I did not eat the cafeteria food. Parking is right outside the door. Still use the old paper charting and T-sheet method, but easy to get back into the habit of doing having done it before, easy to learn for first timers. I ate at a few of the restaurants and the food was pretty good. Wal-mart is only 5 minutes down the road for all your shopping needs. Overall a great experience for my first time traveling. Would definitely go back! 04/11/2017 Housing was approximately .25 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was hospital dorm. Housing was located in city of Rawlins. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 3. I stayed in the hospital dorm. It was only $150/month. The dorm is kind of outdated and needs some work, but overall not a bad place to stay for such a cheap price.
- I worked in the OB department(s) in the hospital. The town of Rawlins is described even by the native residents as the armpit of Wyoming. There is 1 grocery store, no shopping, very expensive, the restaurants are terrible except for the Mexican food, terrible housing choices, and you can't even send mail out overnight here. The hospital is NOT Joint Commission and the managers do not give an accurate description of duties. I was told I would float but that it would mostly be to ER. NOT, I have not even gotten to work in the ER, only Extended care(nursing home) or MED-Surg. They do not tell you that the housekeeper at night can only work on the 1st floor in the ER and that you would be responsible for cleaning the toilets, floors, showers, beds and etc. The doctors here are very behind on new information and protocols. They still hang protonix in 50 ml bags instead of IVP. The pharmacy repackages meds and sometimes the dosage is not on the pill package. They accept pediatric patients without having buritrols. There is not usually a CNA available on Med-Surg. Blood is still hung through warmers. All rooms are semi-private with shared bathrooms between the rooms and sometimes men and women have to share a bathroom. The only reason my schedule was OK was because I had it written into the contract exactly how my schedule would be. They did try to change it a few times and I had to pull out the contract and make them stick with it. The orientation consisted of 4 hours of paperwork and computer time and that was it. OB doesn't even do epidurals, so moms just have to endure pain for childbirth. Travelers cannot get a meal in the cafeteria as they do not accept cash, only these punch cards available through HR to employees. The managers of most of the departments do not have very much experience and it shows in the staffing and policies. The equipment is old with no new equipment in sight. The air conditioning hasn't worked all summer. This is definitly a place to avoid at all costs. I found out first hand why the pay rate was good, but all the bad and expensiveness of the place negated that. 07/26/2008 Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Highland Hills Apts. Housing was located in city of Rawlins. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. The buildings were shabby with poor furnishings and NO air conditioning. You could open windows, but all apts open into a central hall so there is no cross breeze and it gets HOT here in the summer(July and August). I had snow on my in early June and people told me the winters are very bad with so much snow the interstate closes down and the store in town runs out of supplies.
