When patients enter the new home of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute to receive treatment, they will be cared for on an individual basis. That&rsquo;s why each inpatient floor in the new James addresses one specific type of cancer. Floors dedicated to one type of cancer require not only sub-specialized physicians, but also sub-specialized nurses. &ldquo;We work as teams so everybody on the floor will be focusing on the same type of patient,&rdquo; says Martha Bode, MSN, RN, director of oncology nursing at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center &ndash; James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC &ndash; James). Sub-specialized nurses undergo focused education and training to ensure that they are able to meet the needs of patients with a specific cancer. &ldquo;Since there's no routine cancer, it's important that they have education specific to the type of cancer that the patients they're caring for have,&rdquo; says Bode. &ldquo;They have not only education that they received within the hospital, but also sub-specialized education for which we send them to different conferences.&rdquo; Furthermore, specialized inpatient floors in the new James have private rooms conducive to healing and recovery. &ldquo;Every room you go into will always have everything located in the same place, which is efficient for our staff and helpful for patients when they're coming into a strange environment,&rdquo; Bode explains. The new James also has an abundance of windows to bring in natural light and substantial insulation to help keep noise to a minimum while patients are resting.
