Here at UW Hospital we practice Primary Nursing. That means that one nurse will be the patient's Primary Nurse and will be responsible for getting to know the patients and working with them to create a plan of care.
The Primary Nurse will talk with the health care team about patient needs and concerns to coordinate a plan for care.
