The Registered Nurse demonstrates knowledge of care in both stable and acute settings. Adheres to organizational policy and adapts to fast-paced environments while actively participating in and encouraging teamwork.

PCCU nurses are trained to administer and monitor patients on cardiac medications, titratable vasoactive infusions as well as monitor and interpret EKG rhythms.

The Registered Nurse will assist not only with the patient, but also incorporate family focused care by teaching necessary pre- and post-hospital care.

The Registered Nurse operates out of "nursing pods" this allows them to have no more than four patients at a time which maintains a 4:1 patient-to-nurse ratio. OHH nursing pods allow the Registered Nurse to have close access to everything they need and have more time at the patient's bedside ensuring the highest quality care.

With low, fixed nurse-to-patient ratios, our nursing team has time to get to know their patients and their families while providing the highest quality, safe, patient-focused care. Patient rooms are fully stocked with all necessary supplies and arranged in a circular, pod layout around each nursing station to streamline patient care and save our nursing team time.
