Critical Care Unit

<

When you or a loved one need critical care services, Claiborne Medical Center is here for you.
We believe in prompt, efficient service. In addition, we also want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your visit.

“Care” is our middle name.

We developed our Critical Care Unit with our patients in mind:

  • Claiborne Medical Center has five suites for persons with life-threatening conditions.
  • Staff continually monitor patient treatment and progress. We offer 24-hour observation, joining skilled patient care with the latest bedside technology.
  • Specially trained physicians, nurses and technicians provide state-of-the-art medical care. All CCU nurses are trained in advanced cardiac life support.
  • Doctors are available around the clock to admit patients to Critical Care and provide consultations in cardiology and other specialties.

We care about your health and well-being.

Critical Care Unit Visitor Guidelines

Patients in the critical care areas are very ill and have an increased need for rest; therefore, we have restricted visitation to these areas. We allow 30 minutes for visitation with CCU patients. No children under the age of 14, and no more than 2 visitors per patient at one time.

We ask that patients’ belongings (clothing, electronics, valuables, etc.) be taken home with the family when the patient is admitted to our unit. Not only will this help keep personal belongings safe, it also helps our staff keep the surrounding environment clean and safe for our patients.

If possible, please designate one person from your family to serve as the primary point of contact for updates and communication about your loved one’s care. If you’re calling our unit for an update about your loved one, please be prepared to provide the PIN for the patient to receive any information.

Always wash your hands upon entering and before leaving the room.
