Critical Care provides services to patients of all ages in the acute, high-risk phase of a surgical incident or medical illness or injury. Staffed with personnel highly trained and motivated to provide quality critical-care nursing, the CCU has six private rooms and the capability to monitor telemetry patients within the unit or on Med/Surg. Registered nurses provide 24-hour staffing daily and all are required to maintain certifications in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, TEAM/TNCC (trauma) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
Any staff physician may admit directly to the unit within the scope of their practice, credentialing, and in accordance with pertinent bylaws and policies. The admitting physician retains complete responsibility for the supervision of the treatment of that patient, working closely with the nursing staff, consulting physicians and ancillary departments.
It is important that your provider know what medications you are taking. Please click here and download a copy of our Medication Information Form. Fill it out and bring a copy with you when visiting any health care provider. It is a good idea to make copies of the completed form and carry one with you at all times.
Critical Care is located at the main campus, accessible from the North, South or East entrances. Call Critical Care at 503-338-7584.
