The Registered Nurse (RN) is a professional caregiver who assumes responsibility and accountability for assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating care of patients. The staff RN utilizes the nursing process by use of technology, therapeutic intervention, evidence-based practice and coordination of care with other health team members.

Specifically, cardiogenic shock, cardiac arrest, STEMI (ST elevated MI), rule out MI, Heart failure, Pulmonary Hypertension, TAVR (transfemoral aortic valve replacement) and unstable post cardiac Cath lab PCI patients (percutaneous coronary interventions). We manage several advanced therapies such as SWANs, CRRT, Impella, LVADs and ventilators. Our typical nurse to patient ratio is 1:2, with 1:1 nursing for the more critical patients.
