  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.
