Your ICU Team
By working with physicians, our ICU staff ensures that quality care is provided to each patient. The following professionals meet daily to discuss each patient’s progress:
A physician with special training in ICU medicine. Each patient has an Intensivist following his or her care, while in the ICU, at all times.
A physician who sees patients only in the hospital setting. This professional takes the place of a primary care physician while a patient is hospitalized.
Critical Care RN
A nurse specially trained for ICU cases. In addition to clinical care, your RN also has shared responsibility for communicating with you and your family. A nurse will gladly arrange a convenient time to call one designated family member to provide a daily progress report.
Registered Respiratory Therapists (RRT)
As needed, an RRT assists patients with breathing management while they are in the ICU.
There is a pharmacist on the unit daily to assist with medication administration.
A professional who monitors and assists with nutritional needs.
Case Manager/Social Worker
Staff members who assist families by providing support, discharge planning instructions and resources. These professionals also assist with family needs while their loved one recovers.
