The nurse will continue to contact the family every hour or two to provide updates. During the surgery, the nurse is responsible for updating charting/paperwork, getting supplies if needed and administering meds to the sterile field.

A Registered Nurse at Memorial Medical Center means becoming a part of a Magnet hospital that raises the bar for excellence.

Quality nurses not only understand, but also exhibit, that "care starts with caring." Nursing is about caring for people. Above all else, working at Memorial means we expect you to exceed customer expectations.
