Nashville, Tennessee, Description Role Summary: The Surgical ICU Care Partner assists with the delivery of patient care and maintenance of unit environmental standards under the supervision of a licensed nurse.
Department/Unit Summary: The SICU unit specializes in caring for a critically ill patient population that may include liver, kidney, or pancreas transplants; as well as head, neck, thoracic, urologic, and GI surgical patients.
Our primary focus is to provide our diverse patient population with excellent care related to any elective, urgent, or emergent major surgical intervention, as well as procedures that negatively impact normal hemodynamic stability.
This is typically the immediate post-operative phase, but may also include the diagnostic, pre-operative, and extended post-operative phases of care.
Our nurses work closely with the SICU physicians and nurse practitioners to provide care for patients with multiple system organ dysfunctions, ventilators, vasoactive drips and other therapies to ensure optimal sedation, analgesia, cardiac, and hemodynamic function.
Our nursing team assists in coordinating the care between the multiple disciplines and physician teams to provide optimal outcomes for our critically ill patients.
We pride ourselves on providing excellent patient care, with a focus on reducing the number of hospital-acquired infections from ventilators, central venous catheters, and urinary catheters.
