Pulmonary Medical Care Unit and Pulmonary Medical Progressive Care Unit
PMPC/PMCU is a fast paced and team focused 39 bed progressive care and medsurg telemetry unit. 23 progressive care and 16 medsurg telemetry beds. PMPC offers a unique opportunity not afforded in most hospitals, specializing in acutely ill respiratory patient population. This critically important subspecialty affords nurses a unique opportunity to gain experiences not offered anywhere else at Mission, outside of the ICU setting.
PMPC specializes in vented tracheostomy patients and vent weaning. Our unit also cares for Chest tubes, Rescue Bipap, fresh tracheostomies, decortications of the lung, high flow oxygen administration, home vents, cpaps, pulse ox studies, etc. PMPC and PMCU nurses are equipped in several unit specific competencies that uniquely prepare them for easy transition into ICU settings. PMPC manages several drips as well, including heparin, Cardizem, insulin, amiodarone, dopamine, and now taking low dose Precedex drip patients from the ICU.
We offer 3:1 ratios on our progressive care side and 4:1 on our Medsurg tele floor. We have a dedicated respiratory therapist and pharmacist that remain on the unit as well.
We practice a team based focused care model including the Nurses, Physicians, case managers, social workers, pharmacists, house supervisors, PT/OT, and others.
