We have a 4 bed nursing unit providing 24 hour critical care for patients with traumatic or life threatening illness, and is staffed by a specialized nursing team providing excellent care to medical, surgical and cardiac patients. On this unit we treat pediatric thru geriatric age range. The around the clock nursing is provided by a nursing staff, which includes but not limited to, Professional Registered Nurses, and Nursing Assistants who work closely with your physician to provide your individualized plan of care as an inpatient.
The prime consideration of the ICU is that the design allows maximum visibility of all patients. This unit provides closer observation for patients whose condition warrants special care, such as frequent vital signs, cardiac monitoring, care of chest tubes, ventilator, and medication adjustments. Everything in the unit is directed to patient care and treatment and utilizes high quality monitoring and technology to provide a comprehensive approach to patient care.
Restricted visiting is important so that the patient rest more to aide in his/her recovery as well as allows the patient to receive the highest continuous nursing care they require. The staff realizes visitation is important to both the patient and family. Visiting in the ICU is limited to ONLY ADULT members of the immediate family. Two visitors at a time are permitted to be in the room.
For this reason we have visiting hours:
- 11:00 am to 11:30 pm
- 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm
- 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm
- 7:30 pm to 8:00 pm
