The 13-bed Intensive Care Unit provides intensive care to patients who require constant monitoring or special therapy. The ICU also provides care to post-anesthesia recovery patients and some outpatients, including those having a cardiac catheterization procedure or cardio versions.
Patient Care Team
The critical care staff are a team of Registered Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants and Monitor Techs working in conjunction with the Physicians to provide top quality care to the patients we serve. The critical care nurses are specially trained in advanced life support techniques to handle the specialized needs of our patients as well as to monitor and maintain the specialized equipment that is used in the unit.
The equipment used in the ICU is some of the most advanced equipment available today. Some of the equipment used includes state-of-the-art ventilators, a system that monitors all of the patient’s vital signs, and specialized monitoring that is unique to ICU units. Each room has a patient lift system that assures that both patient and staff are safe when lifting, turning, and transferring.
