CTICU - Cardiothoracic Surgery


The Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit (CTICU) is a close collaboration between Intensivists, Surgeons, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Nurse Assistants and house staff in training. This collaboration is intensely, consistently and reliably focused on providing excellent care, twenty- four hours a day, seven days a week.

Clinical Nursing activity in the CTICU is led by the Assistant Director of Nursing, Gemma Abaring, CCRN-CSC. The Assistant Director of Nursing manages staffing and ongoing training and performance improvement activities among the nursing staff, to ensure our nurses are using the most up to date evidence-base practices.
