The unit provides a unique opportunity that allows nurses to build critical thinking skills and helps to provide a foundation for furthering their skillset to help them attain their career goals. Cross training to care for ICU patients is an opportunity that our nurses can take advantage of (after 1 year of employment).

We value quality as demonstrated by low CAUTIs (1 in 4 years), CLABSIs (2 in 1 year) as well as a 50% reduction in HAPI (hospital acquired pressure injuries) in the last year. The care we provide for post-surgical ENT patients has helped Memorial Hermann obtain ranking for ENT, 2nd in Texas and 19th in the US. Our staff has NP support on day shift and night shift.
