2S Clinical Decision

This is a fast paced, 29-bed, Clinical Decision Unit with both observation patients and medical-surgical inpatients. This unit is acts as an extension of the Emergency Room to further investigate issues that brought the patient in to be seen. This requires RN’s to have strong assessment skills, to quickly determine the next step in the patient’s care. The types of patients range from chest pain to complex wound care, with over 50% being worked up for a cardiac issue. Patient ratios are 1:4 to 1:5 depending on the acuity.
