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

demand, are typically full, and our staff is rarely cancelled. We

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.
