This unit provides specialized nursing care for patients with a variety of medical/surgical diagnoses with an emphasis on those of Stroke and Cardiac origin. The more frequent diagnoses are: Unstable Angina, Atrial Fibrillation, Congestive Heart Failure, Stroke, and NSTEMI. Cardiac IV medications for various diagnoses are frequently used in the treatment of patients. This unit receives admissions from the Emergency Department, Physician offices, Cardiac Catheterization Lab (CCL) outpatient procedures, as well as transfers from other facilities. Patients may also be received via transfer from other in-patient units, including CCW, Medical/Surgical floors, PACU and Cardiac Catheterization Lab. PCU may also receive observation patients (including chest pain and stroke). The objective for sending observation patients to PCU is to free up valuable Emergency Department beds. A physician makes a decision to keep the patient in observation status based on criteria from CMS. The goal for observation patients is a 23 hour stay. Additionally, UM BWMC has opened a Centralized Cardiac Monitoring area (CCM), which is located on PCU. This allows for the monitoring all of the patients that are on remote monitor units throughout the facility (except CCW), while maintaining PCU as a fully monitoring unit. The CCM is staffed with monitor technicians that are specially trained for this position.

    • Pregnant patients may be admitted with Labor and Delivery performing daily fetal monitoring for gestation > 20 weeks and OB consult. In efforts to create a culture of Accountability, Communication and Teamwork (ACT), PCU has established a unit slogan, \"PCU Olympians\". Various efforts are made to engage the staff. For example, awarding the \"Gold Medalist\" each month to an outstanding employee. The network of communication has been broadened by introducing new methods or relaying information to staff (New communication TV in breakroom, communication tree).
      PCU strives to align with the priorities of this organization by minimizing patient suffering, increase patient safety and patient quality outcomes, and create a healthy work environment.
