The Pediatric Unit is a 12 bed unit with a specialized focus on patients from birth to 18 years old. Patients are primarily admitted from the Emergency Room with acute illnesses or a need for a surgical intervention. Our pediatric unit collaborates with Physicians from the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia and has a Certified Pediatrician on the unit 24/7. In addition to our pediatric population, we also care for medical-surgical adults within a certain criteria to admit to a locked unit with a pediatric population. Clinical skills regularly performed includes: suctioning, IV insertion, family education, medication administration, care of foleys, chest tubes and pain management. ¢\tRegistered Nurses are responsible for establishing a therapeutic relationship and an individualized plan of care with the patient for a defined period of time (length of stay on that unit) and for communicating that plan of care to his/her collaborative partners. The collaborative nurse follows the plan of care created by the Attending Nurse and the patient/family, making revisions based upon the patients response to treatment and changing needs. Registered Nurses are accountable for planning, delivering, coordinating, evaluating, and modifying the patients care for that defined period of time and for effectively transitioning that plan of care with attention to continuity across shift and settings of care. It is expected that the patients and/or families will know the name of the Attending Nurse, and the collaborative nurse. In order to achieve the defined outcomes of care, the registered nurse will assure that patients and families experience exceptional cooperation among all members of the health care team who treat them and each other with dignity, respect and sensitivity.
