Nursing Opportunities General Medical/Surgical (4 Sutherland)

Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics has a general surgery medical unit at "4 Sutherland" for the following specialties, including:

  • Cardiology
  • Cardiovascular surgery
  • Hepatology, including liver failure and liver transplant

It is a 24-bed unit. All patient rooms are private and configured in a "pod" layout to reduce noise and increase nurse visibility. It is shaped like a three-leaf clover with eight beds in each leaf.

Each pod has its own medication, nutrition, storage, linen, and dirty utility room, as well as a nurses' station for the staff nurses and care assistants working on that pod.

Patients range in age from neonates to 18 years. We occasionally treat young adults.

We work with the "Blue Team," one of our general medical teams composed of residents and attending physicians. We also work with our subspecialty pediatric medical and surgical teams: CV surgery, hepatology and liver transplant.
