Shoreline Cardiovascular Step-Down is a 27-private bed unit that
specializes in cardiac care for patients who have had open heart
surgery.We see cardiovascular/thoracic patients and families 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. 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 5:1.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 bid-shift 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.
