    Description / Scope of Service
    4 East is a 32-bed Med-Surg Oncology inpatient unit that provides nursing care for adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients. The goal of 4 East is to provide high quality holistic care to patients with a variety of Medical, Surgical and Oncology diagnosis utilizing the Primary Nursing care delivery model. The nurse-to-patient ratio is a goal of 4 patients per 1 nurse.  This can be adjusted by the charge nurse according to patient and staffing needs. The Primary Care Nursing delivery model dictates that the ideal candidate must be able to coordinate needed patient care with all disciplines.  The nurse on 4 East will encompass the roles of direct caregiver, educator, consultant, and coordinator of care.   A large portion of an oncology nurse’s job is educating cancer patients and their families about treatment options, procedures and characteristics of the disease.  Nurses on 4 East help patients and their families work through the treatment process and are there to provide support throughout the ups and downs of cancer treatment.  Floating to other units is not required.
     
    A multi-disciplinary approach to nursing care is utilized on the 4 East. Patient care providers will include Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, Nurse Assistants/Patient Care Assistants, Respiratory Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Pharmacists, Social Services, Case Managers, Nursing Support Services and other ancillary departments.
