Department/Unit
Summary:

Our unit
specializes in adult general intensive care for patients with a wide variety of
diseases and conditions that include (but not limited to) pulmonary diseases,
drug overdose, GI bleeds, acute respiratory failure, and sepsis. What
attracts nurses to our unit is that each shift is a new adventure that brings new
challenges.

Our patient
focus is on patient safety, including families in the care of patients, stabilizing
acute processes, and caring for the critically ill.

A typical shift
for our nurses includes providing daily care to an average of two patients, working
with the team to develop a plan of care for the patient, and conversing with
the patient's family to include them in their family member's care. Being
involved in shared governance and decision making for the unit is also a
typical part of the nurse's shift.

We pride
ourselves on our team collaboration through the shared governance structure of our
unit and that our nurses are active participants in clinical-based research.
