Job Description

The practice of nursing requires specialized knowledge, judgment, and skills to provide care to groups and individuals. The RN utilizes knowledge derived from the principles of biological, physical, behavioral, social, and nursing sciences to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate patient care. All care is provided based on the concepts inherent in the model of care for TCH which promotes an on-going partnership between patients and families and the team of healthcare providers. The care is culturally based and age specific. The RN adheres to American Nursing Association (ANA) code of ethics and to the scope of practice described in the Ohio Nurse Practice Act.

Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) is a 20-bed intensive care unit located on 7 West. We provide holistic and compassionate care for patients with numerous diagnoses including pneumonia, GI bleed, respiratory failure, sepsis, heart failure, MI, post-cardiac arrest (including hypothermia protocols), acute renal failure, multi-system organ failure, and many others. Nurses utilize a variety of equipment including the Arctic Sun Temperature Management System and continuous dialysis machines. The MICU is a closed unit, with an Intensivist Physician serving as the attending for each patient. The Christ Hospital is a teaching facility, giving us the opportunity to work closely with the Medical Residents in the MICU, and allowing us to train new nurses through the Critical Care Nurse Residency Program. The MICU holds primary responsibility for the Rapid Response Team, responding to calls throughout the hospital. The MICU RN’s strive to utilize technology and evidence-based practice to provide compassionate and efficient care to achieve best possible outcomes for patients and families.
