Since the introduction of our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in 2009, we have provided excellent high-level care for critically ill patients. Also known as our Monitored Bed Unit (MBU), this service allows patients to receive high-quality individualized care close to home, avoiding transfers to larger hospitals.
Our ICU serves patients who are critically ill as a result of surgery, injury, or acute illness. Indications may include acute respiratory failure, cardiac instability, or multisystem organ failure. The ICU patient may require cardiac monitoring, specialized nursing care, or pharmacologic treatments not provided in less acute hospital areas.
What are some features of the ICU at Community Memorial Hospital?
We provide intensive and intermediate care to patients 24 hours/7 days a week.
ICU patients may range from young adult to geriatric.
All ICU Registered Nurses (RNs) are Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified in addition to completing additional courses in critical care education.
At least one ICU nurse is in house at all times.
