Description: This 9 bed Stroke Intermediate Care Unit monitors and cares for moderately stable patients. It offers a challenging and fast-paced environment to the motivated professional. The patients admitted to this unit may require titrating drips, extensive stroke assessments and invasive monitoring. A higher level of care than the medical/surgical patient, but they do not require admission to the Intensive Care Unit. The lower nurse-to-patient ratio of 3:1 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. Your orientation will consist of 12 weeks with a preceptor on this unit along with two weeks in the Intensive Care Unit. ACLS is required and may be obtained through our Training and Development Center free of charge to employees. We welcome new graduates!!
