Nursing Patient Care Areas – Neuroscience Institute
Patient population: We combine high-tech integrated care with a special level of care and compassion. The staff of the Neuroscience Critical Care Unit (NCCU) has a unique opportunity to provide specialized care to primarily intensive and intermediate care patients. Our integrated unit facilitates the ability of patients to possibly remain in the same room during their hospital stay and receive specialized neuroscience nursing care. This integrated model promotes a continuity of care and familiarity between patients, families and nurses. Our neuroscience team — physicians, nurses, patient and family — formulate an individual plan upon admission. This plan is continually updated as the patient’s condition changes; we are always planning for discharge.
Beds: This is a 31-bed unit.
Candidates: Experience in a neuroscience intensive care unit is preferred, but general intensive care unit/critical care experience is acceptable, or two years of medical/surgical/telemetry experience in an acute care setting.
