Our Medical-Surgical Unit provides individual, clinically expert, professional nursing care to our patients. Our patient population includes all ages from pediatric to geriatric and includes a wide variety of medical diagnoses including pre and post-operative care. We offer services to outpatients on our Observation Unit for same day surgical recovery, IV medications, injections, dressing changes, and short term medical problems. We offer support services for discharge planning including nursing or boarding home and home health services planning and include follow up inquiries for patients discharged home. We are patient-centered and committed to providing evidence based care by our team of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nurses assistants, unit coordinators and ancillary services.
Our team is participating in a national effort to improve care at the bedside called TCAB (Transforming Care at the Bedside). Supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Aligning Forces for Quality, the Institutes for Healthcare Improvement and George Washington University, TCAB is an effort to raise the quality of healthcare, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and provide models for national reform. This effort is aimed at keeping caregivers at the patient bedside. Our team is working to improve the quality of patient care, work more effectively and efficiently, and improve staff satisfaction and retention.
