In our Complex Medical Unit, we have 34 private patient rooms. We are located on the seventh floor in the North tower of the main hospital.

 

The Complex Medical Unit is comprised of a wide variety of medically complex patients. Many of our patients are acutely ill and require a higher level of care than your average medical floor, but do not meet the need to be in a stepdown/ICU unit. Patients can include:

  • Respiratory (BiPAP, High-Flow oxygen, chest tubes)
  • Sepsis
  • Endocrine
  • Cardiac (non-titrated cardiac drip, heparin drip)
  • GI (dobhoff tubes, NG tubes)
  • GU (catheters, bladder irrigation)
  • Nephrology and dialysis patients
  • Post-operative and Wounds (wound vac, various wound dressing and management)
  • Oncology (pleurx catheters, ports)

We have a supportive and close working relationship with our physicians. We encourage open communication and dialogue regarding individualized care to meet each one of our patients needs.

 

We follow a 12- hour shift, weekends/holidays on a six-week schedule. Team members utilize a self-scheduling software. In addition to having excellent critical thinking skills, our ideal candidate will also possess outstanding communication and interpersonal skills. We pride ourselves in fostering a culture of positivity and team work. Our team has a passion for patient care and each other.

 

As an organization, we want to grow our employees by promoting a culture of excellence and professionalism. If you are passionate about putting patients first, and want to work alongside the best of the best, apply for our Complex Medical Unit today!
