The Neurosurgical Progressive Care Unit (NSU) is a 40-bed Progressive Care Unit that cares for some of the most unique neuro cases. We work with surgical drains, incisions, shunts, lumbar drains, spinal cord stimulators, lumbar surgeries, craniotomies, and more.
At times other neurological patients are cared for on the unit. This unit is a great unit to develop neuro skills to grow into the Neuro ICU.
The unit is connected to the AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute, that supports coordination of care from the preoperative, inpatient, and the postoperative care of the patient providing a seamless process in care.
It Takes a Village
Considering our high acuity patients, we could not give the excellent care we do without the support of one another. Our patient population is unique, and each case is different in the way we provide care.
• Patient care model: Registered Nurses & Patient Care Technicians/Nurse Technicians
• Ratios: 3:1 patients per RN for NPH patients x12 hrs, 4-5 patients per 1 RN based on acuity
Our team delivers expert care through collaboration with our Neurosurgeons, pain medicine physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists and pain psychiatrists.
Considering our complex patient population, learning opportunities present themselves at every turn. Our Specialty Programs include;
Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) Program
• The only NPH program in Central Florida and one of only 10 in the US
• NPH is often masked by the normal aging process, is difficult to diagnose and often goes untreated which is what inspired us to create this program
