The Medical/Coronary Care Unit is a 12 bed intensive care unit. We are staffed with highly trained critical care nurses and physicians who specialize in caring for seriously ill adult and geriatric patients. Our team works closely in conjunction with Pharmacy, Respiratory, and Social Services to meet the needs of our patients providing the best possible care. Patients admitted to the MICU/CCU require close observation and the use of extensive invasive monitoring equipment, mechanical ventilation, acute but potentially reversible life threatening cardiovascular impairment, and sometimes end of life care.
The MICU/CCU nurses are a part of the Code Blue Team that responds to cardiac and respiratory arrest in hospital, assisting with immediate treatment of these critically ill patients. The MICU/CCU nurses are also a part of the Rapid Response Team (RRT), providing a highly skilled critical care nurse to assist with treatment of patients that are not currently in a critical care environment. Our nurses participate annually in our critical care nursing skills fair. Our nurses rise to the occasion daily to care for acutely ill patients. If you are highly motivated and well adaptable – come join us!
