Come help support a new unit at the University of Minnesota Medical Center (UMMC)! As an academic facility, there are many innovative procedures that are unique to UMMC. These include the following programs: ECMO, LVAD, and solid organ transplants. This is an exceptional opportunity to help stand-up a brand-new unit.
6D opened as an 18-bed step-down ICU/IMC at the beginning of March 2021. The anticipated patient population includes intermediate level neuro, cardiac and general medical patients. Currently this unit has more intermediate general medical patients including the ability to take stable vented patients, CVP monitoring, and art lines. Anticipated future patient populations include: TIAPT, stable swan-ganz catheters, stable EVDs, lumbar drains, vasoactive medications, low dose pressors, and brain mapping, among many other things. There has been an intentional emphasis on this unit to gradually increase acuity as core staff nurses are trained and onboarded (core staff nurses complete orientation on other units). The current nurse-to-patient ratios are 2:1 to 3:1.
