We offer our patients a critical care environment with personalized care. Our scope of service is predominantly intensive care unit patients with a smaller population of cardiac and medical intensive care patients. Our procedure room is used for cardioversions, after hours post-anesthesia recovery and endoscopy patients. We have a 24/7 on-site skills lab for ICU employees to complement our nursing resource library. Education and specialty certification is highly valued and promoted in the ICU. The ICU also promotes a healing environment of care and strives to meet the healthy work standards set by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. The core values of Critical Care reflect the spirit of this work environment: patient-centered, accountability, team work, individual and team respect, excellence and a nurturing and positive attitude.
Critical care nurses (CCU RNs) assist in the treatment of acutely ill patients with life-threatening conditions, in settings requiring continuous vigilance, complex assessment, and high-intensity therapies and interventions. Working with the patients and their families, ICU RNs strive to create healing, humane and caring environments while also focusing on patient advocacy, working in settings such as intensive care units and cardiac care units, where patients require complex assessment, high-intensity therapies and interventions, and continuous nursing vigilance.
