Overview

St Anthony is a designated Pathway hospital. We support a culture of nursing collaboration and teamwork to help each other grow. We collaborate with the surgeons to determine care plans for patients. We work with our Hospitalists to understand and support goals of care as well. Our Nurses foster a culture of teamwork where everyone pitches in to help. They take pride in quality improvements and performing at the top of their licensure/profession. CHI and St. Anthony Hospital has a strong shared governance system. We have a unit-based council made up of frontline staff that work together to identify areas of improvement and implement change. Unit Council Representatives also serve on the St. Anthony Hospital Coordinating Council that work on hospital wide initiatives.

Our mission is to deliver high quality care that meets our patients' medical needs while providing emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. We believe this three-part approach — physical, emotional, and spiritual — is essential to healing the whole person. Come join our team!

Responsibilities

St. Anthony Hospital Medical Surgical departments have 32 beds per floor.  Our 5th floor has 32 beds for our post-operative Surgical patients. The most common surgical patients are joint replacements, general surgery, gynecological procedures and urology.  Surgical volumes drive our unit census. We work in close collaboration with our Peri-Op team for patient placement and bed planning. General medical patients round out our unit census as overflow from other hospital units. All rooms are private with their own restrooms, supply cabinets as well as couches and privacy curtains for the comfort of family who wish to stay close.  Computers are also located in each patient room as well as outside of every 2 patient rooms to facilitate bedside documentation and medication verification.  We utilize EPIC as our electronic health record.

 

Staffing:

The management structure of the unit consists of an experienced Clinical Manager and a Clinical Coordinator/Educator who work together to oversee the unit.  The Charge Nurses provide additional clinical support for the staff and help to maintain the flow of the unit.  The staff is comprised of RNs and nursing assistants. Support services include:  Respiratory Therapy, 24-hour Pharmacists, PT/OT, IV Therapy RNs, Dieticians and RN Care Managers.  RN patient assignments are determined by patient census and acuity. Our standard RN to patient ratios are 1:5 with CNA support.
