The Medical Unit is an inpatient unit that provides quality medical and nursing care to a wide range of patients. Serving a patient population from young adults (age 18) to geriatric, the majority of patients are admitted with gastrointestinal disorders and heart or lung conditions ranging from acute episodes to chronic. Others are admitted for uncontrolled metabolic disorders, infectious processes, neurological and circulatory impairment, as well as secondary conditions such as kidney disease or diabetes.
The department also provides services for stable outpatients requiring nursing, including monitored services such as antibiotic therapy and blood transfusions, and for stable patients transferred from the Intensive Care Unit requiring further nursing care.
