The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Union Hospital is an eight bed Medical/Surgical ICU (eight private rooms, and two negative pressure rooms). The ICU is designed to provide specialized care for patients who are medically unstable and require around the clock monitoring and aggressive treatments to sustain life. Rooms are spacious and equipped with both bedside telemetry monitoring and computerized stations at the bedside to provide “real time documentation.” There is 24-hour monitor surveillance provided by ICU medical professionals (monitor technicians, registered nurses, etc.) who are educated and trained to respond immediately to any changes in a patient’s heart rhythm and/or medical status. Patients that require Medical/ Surgical Intensive Care treatment are patients who are hemodynamically unstable and/or require ventilatory support. Daily multidisciplinary rounds guide the Intensivist to facilitate a team approach to care. All staff are ACLS/BLS certified.
