14K is the Blood and Marrow Transplant/Hematologic Malignancies unit at OHSU. We perform over 160 allogeneic and autologous stem cell transplants annually. 14K is a 30-bed unit that serves adult patients diagnosed with hematological malignancies including leukemias, lymphomas, Multiple Myeloma, and Myelodysplastic Syndrome. These patients are typically receiving high-dose chemotherapy and biotherapy with or without stem cell transplantation. Patients are typically immunocompromised and may experience severe infections, graft versus host disease, and other severe side effects of chemotherapy. Additionally these patients are facing life-threatening illnesses and often have complex psychosocial needs. The patients on this unit are cared for by a multi-disciplinary team which includes attending physicians, registered nurses, nurse practitioners and physician's assistants, pharmacists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, a dietician, a social worker, and a case manager.
The Certified Nursing Assistant is part of the multi disciplinary team providing care to OHSU patients. The Certified Nursing Assistant provides direct or general nursing care to patients from admission through discharge under the direction of a licensed Registered Nurse and within the scope of practice defined by the Oregon State Board of Nursing. They assist the patients, patients families and friends, nursing staff, and other OHSU personnel to assure the delivery of comprehensive quality care in a safe, confidential and comfortable environment.
