Mater Private Heart and Vascular Centre

(Exerpt from staff nurse) interview

The Mater Private Hospital Dublin has 3 Cath Labs and they form a central part of the Mater Private Heart and Vascular Centre.

The team spirit in the cath lab is great, patients often remark how we are so busy but work so well together, We are like a big family we work hard and do our best to provide the best care for each patient with a bit of fun along the way.

It’s 24/7 including night and weekend on call rosters.

We work well with our colleagues to cover each other and help one another out. We are a transparent multicultural team that voice our concerns for patients and staff alike aim to find solutions and move forward in everyone’s best interest.

Within the multidisciplinary team includes nurses, radiographers, cardiac technicians, cardiologists, porters and catering staff who all look after each and every patient.

We take transfer patients from all corners of the country with varying acuity (STEMI, NSTEMI, ACS, Arrhythmias etc.)

With over 15 consultants we are a dynamic progressive team constantly trying new technology to improve the nature of our work. We do TAVI, Mitral clip, congenital closure cases along with complex vascular cases in our three busy cath labs.
