The patients admitted to this unit may require titrating drips, extensive stroke assessments and invasive monitoring. Typically, a higher level of care than the typical medical/surgical patient, but they will not require admission to the Intensive Care Unit. The lower nurse-to-patient ratio of 1:3 allows the nurse to collaborate with the healthcare delivery team, the patients, and their families for a coordinated plan of care. Support staff is available on this unit to maximize and compliment the team. This position requires 2 years of Critical Care/Stepdown experience.
