MED-SURG STEPDOWN ICCU
(NEW UNIT)
INPUT WORK SCHEDULE
Description
The Educator of the MED-SURG StepDown ICCU will serve in 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 3:1. An RN 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.
 
The Educator will work in cooperation with nursing leadership, staff, physicians, and members of related health services in order to create a learning environment in which nursing and other staff can develop and enhance knowledge and skill to provide optimal, achievable patient care. The Educator will serve as a role model, mentor, and key individual in the success of upholding the framework of philosophies and objectives of University Medical Center and the Nursing Services.
 
The Educator will assist nurses serving in this unit whom will be providing care 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 <8 hours (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. 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, and Nursing Support Services.
