  • I worked in the CVTU department(s) in the hospital. I worked in a very large teaching hospital with the highest acuity in the country before coming here and Yakima only gave me stepdown patients who were about to be discharged, they never let me have an intubabted pt, the layout of the unit is poor, it's an old post partum unit so the rooms are huge but some are very far from the nurses station. They paper chart but have on the computer labs, doctor orders, and eMAR, so it's half and half and not efficient. The staffing ratio's are poor, one weekend it was two nurses one tech for 8 patients, they call you daily for overtime. Most of the staff was friendly and helpful to travelers, others were just rude at times. The surgeon and NP were amazing but good luck finding a different doctor if you have a border, I had to call 4 different doctors once just to find the right one. 11/19/2014
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Townhouse. Housing was located in city of Yakima. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. The townhouse was nice, furnished in a good part of town. Yakima itself is not a good place. Dangerous, lots of car break ins. I heard there are a lot of gangs but I felt safe where I was. Stay West of 40th and you'll be fine is what I was told. It's nice if you like outdoors. There are trails and it's only about 1.5 hours from Mt. Rainier. 2.5 to Seattle and 3 to Portland. But there's not a lot of night life unless you want to risk getting in a fight with some drunk townies.
