Job Description & Requirements

Intensive Care Nurse - ICU Nurse

The CCU is composed of twenty private patient rooms for the intense care of adult and adolescent patients. The purpose of the CCU is to provide the critically ill patient safe, focused, highly concentrated care and services when conditions require, and whose clinical situation will benefit from continuous comprehensive observation. This care is rendered by skilled, critical care trained registered nurses, physicians and ancillary staff. The complex needs of the critically ill necessitate a multidsciplinary approach; involving nursing and physician input, as well as phyarmacy, dietary, respiratory, and social services, case management and the rehabilitiation therapies. Evergreen supports the concept of patient/family centered care and encourages participation of the family on the daily basis. Multidiscplinary rounds are conducted daily by the intensivist and team. Types and ages of patients served: Adults through geriatrics age groups may be cared for in CCU. Adolescents sixteen years old or greater than 40kg may also be cared for in CCU. Staffing: The CCU is staffed according to the patient care needs as assessed by the Manager or designee, generally the unassigned shift charge nurse. Minimum Critical Care staffing would include two registered nurses. The nurse/patient ratio generally varies from 1:1 to 1:2 for the critically ill patient. Patients may be assigned 1:3 or 1:4 nurse/patient ratio when patients are stable and preparing to transfer to Progressive Care Unit or medical unit. A 1:1 patient may be defined as hemodynamically unstable patient requiring 1:1 monitoring and care, for example in Intra Aortic Balloon Pump or Continuous Renal Replacement patient. Certified Nurses Assistants and Health Unit Coordinators are scheduled each shift when needed to support the registered nurse.
