  • I worked in the ICU/CVICU department(s) in the hospital. The ICU is kind of dirty and small (12 bed unit, with one room used for storage) with some of the oldest equipment I have seen. The hospital is really cheap. If you stay over 5 minutes, you have to fill out a form explaining why. The doctors and nurses on nights are really cool, less so on days. Everyone in the hospital are fairly friendly. Most of the nurses there have only been there and worked their way up. I would never share how backwards their system is, because fish don't know they're wet. They use a Cerner System for charting. I like Cerner and have a lot of experience using it. However the way they have it configured, it is a cumbersome struggle that borders on scavenger hunt. They have two places to eat in the hospital. One is vegan and the other is vegetarian (It's a Seventh Day Adventis religion thing). Their monitors are not standard Phillips monitors, it is some Japanese sounding company they inherited from an Adventist hospital in California who refused it. CVICU is more modern and bright with Phillips monitors. They get a couple fresh hearts a week, but if you are floated there, you will probably get 3 or 4 telly/observation patients and a better assignment of the two. The hospital is off I205 and kind of between Portland and Gresham (the ghetto). It is what it is, a small town, penny pinching community hospital. Good luck. 10/23/2014
  • Housing was approximately 15 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Harrison Tower. Housing was located in city of Portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. I found this place on my own. My agency was Accountable Health Care. They just took the money out of my stipend and gave me the little left over. This place is great in downtown Portland. The view from your balcony of the river on the east side is amazing. But amazing isn't cheap on short term leases. $1650/mo plus $16o/mo for covered/secured/assigned parking ($140 for open parking, not a problem finding a spot.) The place has an onsite manager, lounge, workout room. Walking distance to central downtown on 3rd and Harrison St. This is a government area (police station, court houses, Fed agencies, next to the University) so it is dead after 6PM. Several short blocks to night life and restaurants. A lot of Arabs in the building. Really nice people. The commute isn't bad, as long as you know that Portland traffic is crazy.
