Intensive Care | ProMedica Memorial Hospital

 

ProMedica Memorial Hospital's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a 12 -bed department in the hospital. The ICU is well equipped with state-of-the-art technology to enable the nursing and medical staff to spend needed time at patients’ bedside. 

The ICU is focused on immediate care of the patient.   In addition, the nurses’ station is within steps of the 8 ICU rooms and the 3 step-down rooms, allowing the nurse to stay close to the patient while completing necessary documentation. 

Staffed 24-hours a day, the ICU provides patients with high-level medical care.  The unit is always staffed with at least three Registered Nurses (RN’s) to guarantee around-the-clock quality care to patients. Also, for your comfort, all ICU rooms are private.

Services

24-Hour Continuum of Care
Inpatient Dialysis Services

Some other services that are provided by the ICU are post-operative patient care, including pulmonology, critical care, nephrology and cardiology.

The ICU features hospitalist centered care.  A hospitalist is a board certified physician dedicated to the treatment of hospitalized patients. The admitting physician will still play a key role in the patient's hospitalization, however he/she will routinely consult with the hospitalist throughout the patient’s stay.

The hospitalist will monitor the patient’s condition as well as the continuing care.  This special inpatient focus allows the hospitalist to allocate more time, attention and energy to addressing individual patient’s needs and concerns. hospitalists provide frequent consultation with families, and have the additional advantage of being on-site to provide focused care.

Specialized procedures
Some of the specialized procedures that Memorial Hospital ICU provides are inpatient dialysis, Cardio Version 1 Tee, Ventilator Management, and specialized monitoring that may be required.
