The Medical-Surgical Unit provides care to adults who are hospitalized with a wide variety of conditions, including pneumonia, stroke and fractures. Our caregivers also prepare patients for surgical procedures and provide post-surgical care required until the time of discharge. The Medical Surgical floor has the ability to care for 16 patients requiring telemetry. The unit can provide care for up to 40 patients, most of which are in semi-private rooms. Private rooms are available for patients requiring isolation or special treatments. Our nursing staff has a wide range of training and experience, providing treatment for those ranging in age from the young adult to end of life patients.
The Medical-Surgical staff utilizes a team approach in caring for our patients. The direct care team includes physicians, surgeons, Hospitalist, RN’s, LPN’s and Nursing Assistants. Our nurses are encouraged to participate in the profession’s efforts to implement and improve standards of nursing. Doctors, social workers, dietitians, pharmacists, along with physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists assist in developing a plan of care to fit the individual needs of each patient.
Nurses at Warren General Hospital provide care with respect for human dignity. We believe that each patient has the right to receive quality care based on individual needs and age requirements. Patients and their families are involved in establishing priorities for care that best meet the patients’ needs.
Professionalism, compassionate care, and a commitment to continuous improvement are key qualities of our nursing staff. Staff members regularly participate in educational activities to maintain competence, gain new knowledge and develop advanced skills.
The goals of the medical surgical unit staff are to provide efficient, quality, individualized and comprehensive nursing care to all patients.
