Provides professional nursing care for the comfort and well-being

Observes and maintains records on patient care, condition,
reaction, and progress.
Shoreline Cardiovascular Progressive Care Unit is a 36-private bed
unit that specializes in cardiac care for patients who have had
open heart surgery. We see cardiovascular/thoracic patients that
are post CABG, heart caths, valve replacements, thoracotomies, and
many other cardiothoracic surgical procedures. We also see general
medical surgical patients that may have a primary cardiac
diagnosis/history with co-morbidities that may need telemetry
monitoring, as well as those patients needing critical cardiac
drips, or Aquadex. On 6NT, we train our staff to detect medical
issues before they become a problem, so they can respond to those
emergent situations quickly and confidently. We have many
opportunities for assessments, patient/family teaching, IVs, wound
care, lab value analysis and medication administration/ management.
Our average nurse to patient ratio is 1:3 to 1:6 depending on
patient acuity. One beautiful thing about 6NT is we are a heart
floor in a heart hospital, so our beds are in high demand, are
typically full, and our staff is rarely cancelled. We offer
flexible scheduling through Bidshift and promote a team
environment. On 6NT, we encourage communication and collaboration
in an environment that is engaging and rewarding for our health
care professionals, as well the patients on our unit.
