Description

Registered Nurse – Intermediate Critical Care Unit (ICU step down)

** Completion Bonus Available for Qualified Applicants

Shift – Schedule: FT DAYS 7a-7p

Departmental Description

  • The Med- Surg ICCU is a brand new state of the art 30-bed intermediate critical care inpatient unit that prides itself in providing patient centered family care to adolescent, adult, and geriatric patient populations. The mission of this unit will be to provide the utmost quality of care to patients and families along with physician collaboration to those patients that require a higher level of care but do not fit the care needs that an intensive care setting provides. We envision a care model that places focus on nurses delivering exceptional care and emphasizes a Primary Care Nursing model with nurse-to-patient ratios ideally 3:1. A nurse on our care team will be encouraged to grow and learn in a supportive team-oriented environment where each individual is satisfied, energized, and productive. Nurses will be dynamic in knowledge and skill as our patient's service lines will be diverse, and will support the delivery of care model that UMC embodies. Nurses serving in this unit can precipitate caring for patients with these conditions but certainly not limited to the following: acute GI bleed controlled with intervention and hemodynamically stable, DKA, post neurological trauma/intervention, post stroke with and without intervention, patients requiring CPAP, BiPAP, high-flow oxygen, or mechanical ventilation whom are medically stable, continuous intermediate cardiac and hemodynamic monitoring, and patients requiring nursing interventions every 2 hours for (pulse ox, neuro checks, complex wound care, glucose monitoring); vital signs hourly for up to 4 hours. A multi-disciplinary approach to nursing care is utilized on the ICCU.
