Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a five bed Medical-Surgical Intensive Care Unit. The five private rooms are set up to monitor and provide life support to patients who are critical, or potentially critically ill or injured. Services include non-interventional cardiac care and cardiac monitoring, respiratory care including ventilatory support, pre- and post-surgical care and follow-up, as well as general medical nursing care as needed. Transfer to a tertiary hospital for services we cannot provide may be necessary based on patient condition, patient/family decision, and/or physician determination. Our ICU also provides post-anesthesia care as an adjunct to surgical services provided at OMH.
About Our Staff
Our ICU staff is comprised of highly skilled and trained nurses. They work in collaboration with the physicians, surgeons and other healthcare team members to provide safe, quality care for our patients.
Our Medical-Surgical Unit is a 29 bed unit for the care of medical and surgical patients. Services include non-interventional cardiac care with telemetry monitoring, respiratory care with continuous pulse oximetry as needed, pre- and post-surgical care and followup, as well as general medical nursing care.
Care of the patient is based on their needs in collaboration with their physician and other members of the healthcare team, with an emphasis on preservation of life, patient dignity, and the promotion of wellness and quality of life.
Patient advocacy, pyschosocial support, and education of patients and their families/caregivers are an integral aspect of this care.
