Provide emotional support and address concerns, ensuring patients and families are informed and involved in decision-making processes. Documentation and Communication: Maintain accurate and timely documentation of nursing assessments, interventions, and patient responses in electronic medical records (EMRs). Communicate effectively with interdisciplinary team members, including physicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and case managers, to coordinate care plans and ensure continuity of care.
