Surgical service lines include Colorectal, Urology, Gynecology, Otorhinolaryngology and General Surgery. While a majority of our patient volume is surgery, we also care for general medicine patients. RN patient assignments are most frequently 3-5:1, depending on the overall acuity of the assignment, which is measured by our acuity scale. These patient assignments are also supported by highly skilled Patient Care Technicians (PCT) that perform vital signs, accuchecks, electrocardiograms, intake and outputs, phlebotomy, assistance with ADLs and ambulation. The PCT patient assignments are most frequently 8-12:1, again depending on the overall acuity of the assignment.
Our goal is to provide the best quality of care in a compassionate and caring environment for patients and their families. The skilled and dedicated staff members of our unit work together in a collaborative environment that fosters respect, accountability, honesty, and professionalism to enhance the patient experience.
