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.
