Our cardiac recovery unit would
1) prep patients coming in from home: labs, 2 IV sites, consent, shave prep, mark pulses, EKG, pre-procedure meds.
2) recover patients post procedure: pull sheaths prn, monitor VS q15min while sheath in and 1 hour post hemostasis, insert foleys prn.
3) do hospital admit for patients going to the floor: general admission history, med reconcilliation, call report to floor and transport.
4) discharge patients home prn: ambulate post procedure, dc IVs, teaching.

Rinse, lather, repeat.
