    Description / Scope of Service
    3 East is a 35 bed general inpatient unit that provides care for adult patients ranging in age from 16 years of age to 99 years of age. Six of those are dedicated to the bariatric population. We provide pre-op and post-op nursing care for the following surgical teams: General Surgery, Neurosurgery, Urology, Cardiovascular, ENT, Trauma, Bariatric (Weight Loss Surgery), we also care for Medical Patients (Internal Medicine). We also provide nursing care as needed to an over-flow population of adult patients from all other general care units. The nursing care delivery model is Primary Care Nursing. The nurse-to-patient ratio is a goal of 4-5 patients per 1 nurse. This can be adjusted by the charge nurse according to patient and staffing needs. This delivery care model dictates that the ideal candidate must be able to coordinate needed patient care with all disciplines. The ideal candidate must be able to balance time management and prioritization, including patient/family education as a priority.  Floating to other units does not occur.
