The Neuro ICU is a 16 bed critical care inpatient unit providing nursing care for adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients meeting the admission criteria.
The goals of the unit are to provide high quality care to critically ill patients admitted to the Neuro ICU and return the injured/critically ill back to a healthy state. These goals are accomplished while also improving healthcare through research and education for patients with immediately life-threatening neurological problems. This is accomplished through a multidisciplinary effort that considers all aspects of a person’s life, including his or her physical, social, spiritual and psychological well-being. A multi-disciplinary approach to nursing care is utilized in the Neuro ICU.
The nurse-to-patient ratio is a goal of 1-2 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 make the education of patients and families a top priority and coordinate the necessary patient care with all members of the multidisciplinary team.
