Our nurses are fully engaged and are an integral part of patient rounds, case reviews, morbidity and mortality/performance improvement reviews, as well as focused professional practice in critical care.
Our nursing team works closely with our 24-hour intensivist team to provide optimal care for our patients and comfort for their families. We have an on-site provider, available for support should the patient require an escalation of care.
Our unit consists of highly engaged nurses with dedicated preceptors who love to teach eager new nurses.
