Registered Nurse - SURG STEP STAFF NURSE
|Mount Sinai Hospital 2 North is a 34 bed medical – surgical unit
staffed by registered nurses, LPNs, and CNAs providing care for our
patient population. We take pride in teamwork on 2 North.
As a Level One Trauma Center, our unit receives trauma patients as
well as post-surgical patients of a multitude of specialties. Our patients are
admitted directly from the Emergency Department or from the Post Anesthesia
Care unit. We also receive patients being transferred from the SICU or from the
Surgical Step-down and direct admission for pre-op care. In addition to
caring for trauma patients we care for a wide spectrum of surgical
patients ranging from general surgical procedures vascular surgeries,
bariatric surgeries, gyne surgeries, orthopedic surgery and, spine
surgery . Our physician team includes board certified Intensivists and Trauma
physicians, and surgeons from all specialties.
We also have a full complement of Resident Physicians specializing
in trauma; trauma surgery; general surgery; ear, nose and throat; orthopedics;
obstetrics, gynecology, oncology, neurosurgery, rehabilitation, and much
more. We work closely with our social workers which link our
patients to support services. They also assist with resources to
help patients cope with any post-traumatic stress, medication assistance
programs, placement issues, and transition from hospital to home. Our
therapy team consists of speech, physical and occupational therapists that do a
wonderful job in getting our patients up and moving.
Staffing and scheduling is always of concern to our nursing
staff. We utilize online self-scheduling to fit the individual needs of
our caregivers with the added convenience of being able to view your
schedule and make requests at any time. In addition, we utilize
online shift bidding to offer open shifts at a premium rate to provide our
nurses with the opportunity to pick up extra shifts, flex staff and enhance
continuity of care.
2 North is a fast paced, exciting environment and if teamwork,
education and trauma sound exciting – this may be a unit for you.
