Position Highlights

The Mission of the Special Care Unit is to provide expert acute/critical and compassionate care to Oncology/Hematology patients and families while supporting education and research. The approach is interdisciplinary and family-centered. A pharmacist is available on the unit 16 hours per day and dieticians and social workers are very involved in patient care. The relatively long length of stay on the unit and readmissions for post-transplant care enable nurses to establish rewarding relationships with patients and families.

Patient Population

The unit serves adult and pediatric oncology/hematology patients receiving chemotherapy or high dose chemotherapy, with or without bone marrow/stem cell transplant, and undergoing complex medication and blood product administration. For adults there is a BMT APP on the unit 24 hours for needed medical orders and oversight of the treatment plan. Internal Medicine manages the General Oncology patient population with a Hematology/Oncology Academic Consult. These patients are co-managed. The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology team or the Pediatric BMT team manages pediatric patients.
