Medical Care Unit
The medical unit is a 21-bed nursing unit caring for patients in a professional, prompt, compassionate and safe manner. We value human life and strive to maintain the dignity, privacy, confidentiality and rights of patients and their families. Care is provided by trained and competent staff, which includes registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants and unit secretaries.
We serve adult and geriatric patients with disorders involving the respiratory, cardiovascular, renal-urinary, neurological, endocrine, gastrointestinal, hematological and/or musculoskeletal system. Emphasis is placed on safe and effective pain management as well as respect for end-of-life issues and supportive care.
We provide care to patients from infancy through adolescence that may have an acute illness or injury. Parents are encouraged to participate in the ongoing care of their child. Emphasis is placed on the safety and security of our pediatric patients at all times.
Our decisions, our actions and our relationships with each other and with the people we serve are guided by:
- Caring about our patients and their families through the delivery of excellent patient care with the collaboration of physicians and other service
- Caring about our team of nursing staff by respecting and valuing the contribution of every member of our team
- Caring for our community through our dedication to our ongoing mission of serving the people
