Multispecialty critical care

We employ a multidisciplinary team to meet every patient’s needs. Our intensive care team includes:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Nutritionists
  • Dietitians
  • Physical therapists
  • Pharmacists
  • Social workers

Our intensive care services go above and beyond by providing concentrated care and advanced technologies. We use remote monitoring, continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) and an aggressive transitional care program.

We also provide extra assistance to our patients through our progressive mobility program. This program helps patients who are immobilized gradually re-introduce and restore mobility. Our goal is to help patients return to their normal level of function.

Visiting the ICU

When you are visiting a friend or loved one in the StoneSprings Hospital ICU/PCU, we ask that you follow our guidelines and visiting hours. Our visitor guidelines are designed to provide patients in our ICU/PCU with the best setting for their recovery and renewal. An important part of intensive care treatment is allowing patients the proper time and environment to rest and promote healing.

We ask that visitors follow these ICU/PCU guidelines:

  • Announce your arrival to the ICU/PCU by using the phone/intercom system located on the wall.
  • Limit ICU/PCU visitors to two people at the patient’s bedside.
  • We observe open visitation but request no visitors during shift changes, from 6:30am to 8am and from 6:30pm to 8pm
  • Exchange visitors and patient information in the waiting area, not at the patient’s bedside or in doorways.
  • Use the waiting area when you are not visiting in the patient’s room to help limit foot traffic in the hallways, doorways and the unit itself.
  • Use hand sanitizer when entering and leaving each room, located on the wall near the door.
  • Do not bring live flowers or plants into the ICU.
  • Do not eat or drink in the ICU.
  • Limit cell phone use, and keep conversations in a quiet tone.
  • Set phone ringers on low volume or vibrate.
  • Consider the risk you pose to ICU/PCU patients if you are visiting and have a fever or symptoms of a cold or the flu.
  • Provide direct supervision for children.
  • Please keep infants and toddlers at home.

Progressive care unit (PCU) exceptions:

  • Live flowers and plants are allowed

Visitors are not allowed to stay overnight in ICU/PCU patient rooms. There are a variety of hotel accommodations located nearby in a number of price ranges for friends and family who wish to stay close to the hospital.

Designate a primary contact person

In order to ease the flow of information, we ask that you designate one person as the primary contact person for our critical care nursing staff to provide updates to about your loved one’s condition. Any phone inquiries we receive about your loved one’s condition will be referred to the patient’s designated contact person.

The primary contact person will be given a privacy code to provide with the patient’s name when calling for updates. Our nurses will contact you if there is any change in your loved one’s condition.
