Clinical Nurse I


7 West is MedStar Georgetown University Hospital's 16 bay Procedural PACU. Nurses on 7 West provide the highest quality postoperative care according to ASPAN standards for patients recovering from a variety of procedures including Interventional Radiology, Bronchoscopy and Cardiac Catheterization. Our highest priority is patient safety and providing exceptional patient care every day to every patient. During the recovery of each patient, the 7 West nurses continually assess and address basic life-sustaining needs of the patient. Nursing care focuses on airway management, re-establishing hemodynamic stability with frequent surgical site and vital sign assessments and pain management. In collaboration with the multidisciplinary team, the nurse will use critical thinking to determine the next most appropriate level of care and facilitate the safe transfer of the patient to that location, including discharge home, return to an inpatient bed or transitioning to an intensive care setting. 7 West values nursing education and professional development. As a result, newly hired nurses are provided a comprehensive orientation, designed by a Clinical Educator and customized to the nurses' skills and experience. Additionally, the Clinical Educator coordinates ongoing educational programs designed to meet the unique needs of all 7 West associates, including nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical technicians and patient care associates. The nurses on 7 West are very engaged, participating in collaborative governance at the unit and hospital level and demonstrating exceptional nursing skill through participation in the Clinical Advancement Program.
