The Emergency Room C Pod is a new fast-paced stepdown unit of special nurses for boarded and ESI level patients. It is an expansion of one of our three pods, C Pod, and will have 33 beds. Our nurses encounter a diverse patient population every day, with assignments ranging from the acute and critically-ill to non-acute and fast track patients.
To work in the C Pod, our nurses need strong assessment skills, the ability to think critically and adapt to new challenges, along with strong communication skills to care for our patient population and work with our interdisciplinary teams. It is a great unit for building and developing skills to launch a career in the ED!
