We are currently hiring for a Clinical Nurse (Registered Nurse) on our Family Medicine & Internal Medicine unit - HC7
HC 7 Family & Internal Medicine PCU
This 32-bed telemetry progressive care unit specializes in Family Medicine and Internal Medicine. Patient diagnoses range anywhere from COPD exacerbations, pancreatitis, non-healing wounds, pulmonary emboli, etc. The top two patient diagnoses on the unit are heart failure exacerbations and sepsis.
This welcoming unit is fast paced but has exceptional teamwork and prides itself on taking care of one another while taking great care of patients. Time management and prioritization are needed and you can gain experience with stable trachs, PEG tubes, ostomies, catheters, and wound drains. We are always looking for proactive teamwork in this nurturing environment that provides the challenge you are looking for. Our nurse to patient ratio is normally 4:1.
A unique feature about this unit is the working relationship with the physicians. Several simulations have been completed including rapid response and code blue simulations. We pass the most medications, call the most behavioral and rapid responses out of any progressive care unit. If you like the buzz and movement similar of an ED environment, this might be the unit for you! This unit is also the only unit at the hospital to have their physicians shadow their nurses are a part of their orientation experience.
