Location:Alfred 7E (AL7E), Respiratory Care Unit (General Care)
Patient Care Type:This unit is designed to provide transitional care for adult and geriatric patients who require mechanical ventilation (invasive through a tracheostomy or non-invasive ventilation) or have complex respiratory care needs requiring complex respiratory monitoring.
Nursing Team Roles:The focus of care is grounded in the primary value of Mayo Clinic, in that the needs of the patient come first. Nursing provides care in collaboration with the multidisciplinary team and engages the patient and family through participation in structured/scheduled family meetings, to enhance the patient experience and provide a congruent plan of care. The unit is staffed by a multidisciplinary team composed of members from respiratory therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, nursing, social work, and nutrition. Providers consist of Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellows, Critical Care Nurse Practitioners/Physician Assistants, and Critical Care Physicians from the Department of Medicine, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care.
The patient care assistant assists patient care unit staff with delegated tasks of direct and indirect patient care, which support nursing practice under the direct supervision of a registered nurse. The patient care assistant carries out designated activities that are within those functions limited by law to unlicensed nursing personnel.
