Registered Nurse ICU/CVICU Cooper University Health Care Vineland, NJ,

In the ICU/CVICU setting, we provide direct and indirect patient care services that meet the psychological, physical and general aspect of care while utilizing the nursing process in planning care. We must meet the communication and education needs of the patient and family, and provide care that reflects initiative and responsibility indicative of professional expectations. We are also required to maintain regulatory agency requirements; nursing and hospital policies, procedures and standards, as well as communicate with physicians and other team members about changes in a patient’s condition. We must be able to respond quickly and accurately to changes in condition with the appropriate response to treatment. Additionally, we must perform general nursing duties in all departments with adequate supervision of licensed practical nurses, technicians, and other support staff.

The primary goal is timely response and treatment of the critically ill patient. This includes medication administration, critical equipment management and continuous monitoring of vital signs and patient status to determine the outcome of the patient in what often is a life and death situation. With continuing improvements in protocols such as our sepsis protocol, for example, we are able to quickly reverse what may have started out as a grave situation into an amazing recovery time with excellent outcomes for the patient. This also requires excellent communication between the nurses and physicians to best coordinate and facilitate the most quick, safe, and efficient transition for the patient from the admit process and critical time until discharge.
