Cardiac nurses at the Massachusetts General Hospital Corrigan Minehan Heart Center offer support and guidance during a family member's open-heart surgery or transplantation.
The nurses in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit realize that having a loved one in a critical care unit can be a confusing and anxious time for the entire family. Many families tell us that the things they need most while coping with the seriousness of a family members illness are:
As nurses we can help you meet these needs. We will share information about your family member with you in understandable terms, provide expert compassionate nursing care for your family member and help you be physically and emotionally near your loved one. Please let us know what we can do to help you through this difficult time.
The equipment and monitors in the critical care unit have signals that beep, buzz and bubble. Though they may be startling to family members, they provide protection for the patient. Please ask your nurse to explain any piece of equipment or alarm you are wondering about.
