  • Patient Assessment and Monitoring: Nurses in the BMT unit are responsible for conducting thorough assessments of patients before, during, and after transplantation. This includes monitoring vital signs, assessing for signs of complications, and managing symptoms related to the transplant process.
  • Care Coordination: Nurses collaborate with a multidisciplinary team, including physicians, transplant coordinators, social workers, and pharmacists, to develop and implement individualized care plans for patients undergoing transplantation. They coordinate the various aspects of care, including scheduling procedures, administering medications, and facilitating consultations with specialists.
  • Patient Education: Nurses play a crucial role in educating patients and their families about the transplantation process, including potential risks and benefits, pre-transplant preparations, and post-transplant care.

They educate patients and visitors on proper hand hygiene, isolation precautions, and other preventive measures.
  • Documentation and Reporting: Nurses maintain accurate and up-to-date documentation of patient assessments, interventions, and outcomes in the electronic medical record. They communicate effectively with other members of the healthcare team, providing timely updates on patient status and any changes in condition.
