Our nurses work closely with the SICU physicians and nurse practitioners to provide care for patients with multiple system organ dysfunctions, ventilators, vasoactive drips and other therapies to ensure optimal sedation, analgesia, cardiac, and hemodynamic function. Our nursing team assists in coordinating the care between the multiple disciplines and physician teams to provide optimal outcomes for our critically ill patients. We pride ourselves on providing excellent patient care, with a focus on reducing the number of hospital-acquired infections from ventilators, central venous catheters, and urinary catheters.
