Caring for some highest acuity patients in Cleveland Clinic health system, the G101 Transplant Specialty Care Nursing Unit is an organ transplant unit designed to provide supportive services to assist transplant patients and their families throughout the entire organ transplantation process. The unit specializes in kidney, pancreas, liver, intestine and face transplant surgeries. G101 is uniquely different than most units due to the acuity and complexity of our patient population.
Caring for transplant patients requires strong surgical care, critical thinking and constant reliability from the nursing caregiver team. Teamwork is the cornerstone of our nursing unit as we work with a diverse range of caregivers on a daily basis. Our unit strives to provide patient education and support our transplant patients with world-class, kind-hearted medical care. Due to the nature of transplant care, the relationships we build with our patient population are often life-long.
Our dedicated and highly trained nursing caregivers follow an intricate nursing care model that is rooted in evidence-based practice and always puts patients first. Our goal is that all of our caregivers provide patients with the highest quality, safest care possible exuding the Cleveland Clinic nursing organization's values of quality, innovation, teamwork, service, integrity and compassion.
