Unit Summary

We are a 22-bed unit. On the Cardiology Stepdown Unit, we care for adult patients aged 18 years and older who are being treated for various vascular disorders such as aneurysms and amputations, as well as patients with congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, and pre-and-post-op cardiothoracic surgeries. 8 South is comprised of 22 patient rooms dedicated to cardiac stepdown patients; however medical stepdown patients are also incorporated into our patient population.

Our cardiac patients' diagnoses range from STEMIs, CHF exacerbations, pacemaker exchanges, and transplant workups. Vascular surgeries include pre- and post-operative care for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafts. All 22 rooms have bedside monitors. Staff is alerted to significant changes in patients' cardiac rhythms by monitor techs. The unit's nursing station is also equipped with cardiac monitors that allow staff the ability to intervene early to assess and detect abnormal arrhythmias.

Our patients are unique because they are treated by multidisciplinary teams of specialists who are trained in evaluating and diagnosing problems originating from the valves and coronary vessels all the way to the periphery of the vascular system.
