Intensive Care

Our intensive care patients receive a 2:1 patient to registered nurse
staffing ratio so that every patient is assured the highest level of care.

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at St. Joseph's Hospital provides compassionate care for patients and families using the latest technology and advanced monitoring equipment. Every room in the intensive care unit is private, equipped with the latest monitoring capabilities, and provides space for family and private interactions between the patient and the health care team.

Patients experiencing critical medical and surgical challenges to their health and requiring around-the-clock intensive care are continually monitored by a team of experienced health care professionals including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, social workers, chaplains and respiratory therapists.

 

MONITORING

Specialized monitors located in the Intensive Care Unit are also available to monitor telemetry patients requiring close cardiac observation throughout the hospital. This technology allows our critical care staff to collaborate with physicians and other nursing departments in the monitoring and treatment of patients experiencing changes in their cardiac rhythm.
