We collaborate with the surgeons to determine care plans for patients. We work with our Hospitalists to understand and support goals of care as well. Our Nurses foster a culture of teamwork where everyone pitches in to help. They take pride in quality improvements and performing at the top of their licensure/profession. CHI and St. Anthony Hospital has a strong shared governance system. We have a unit-based council made up of frontline staff that work together to identify areas of improvement and implement change. Unit Council Representatives also serve on the St. Anthony Hospital Coordinating Council that work on hospital wide initiatives. Our mission is to deliver high quality care that meets our patients' medical needs while providing emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. We believe this three-part approach - physical, emotional, and spiritual - is essential to healing the whole person. Come join our team!St. Anthony Hospital enjoys the benefits of being part of the CHI Franciscan family of hospitals and other health care services providing care to our communities throughout the beautiful South Puget Sound Region of Western Washington. Recreational opportunities abound here - we offer water sports, skiing, hiking, shopping, fine dining, theater and an overall excellent quality of life. CHI Franciscan Health has exciting and rewarding careers with competitive salaries and benefits.
Responsibilities The Medical Surgical Observation Unit at St. Anthony Hospital has expanded. We are a specialized, fast-paced, observation unit soon to be comprised of 16 adult observation bays dedicated to responding to the needs of the patient who requires ongoing diagnostic testing or observation prior to discharge or admission. Our staff provide compassionate, high quality care that is respectful, patient and family-centered, safe and cost-efficient.
Our nurses are adept at working with fast paced changes and coordinating care since stays are typically less than 24-48 hours in this unit. Despite the rapid patient turnover, nurses in this unit demonstrate their caring by quickly establishing a rapport with the patient and involving them in their own care. The staff experience the professional satisfaction that comes with making a difference every day for their patients. The patient population includes those experiencing chest pain, stroke, congestive heart failure exacerbation, uncontrolled hypertension, dehydration, and post-procedural recovery for cardiac catheterization and short stay surgery.
The patient rooms in the department are procedural bays and include computers in every room to facilitate bedside documentation and medication verification. All beds are telemetry monitored. We utilize Epic as our electronic health record. This unit is embedded in the perioperative area with a central nursing workstation.
