The Medical Surgical ICCU is a brand new state of the art 29-bed intermediate critical care inpatient unit that prides itself in providing patient centered family care to adolescent, adult, and geriatric patient populations. The mission of this unit is to provide the utmost quality of care to patients and families along with physician collaboration to those patients that require a higher level of care but do not fit the care needs that an intensive care setting provides. Our care model places focus on nurses delivering exceptional care and emphasizes a Primary Care Nursing model with nurse-to-patient ratios 3:1. An RN on our care team is encouraged to grow and learn in a supportive team-oriented environment where each individual is satisfied, energized, and productive. Our nurses are dynamic in knowledge and skill as our patient’s service lines are diverse, and support the delivery of care model that UMC embodies.

Nurses serving in this unit can precipitate caring for patients with these conditions but certainly not limited to the following: acute GI bleed controlled with intervention and hemodynamically stable, DKA, post neurological trauma/intervention, post stroke with and without intervention, patients requiring CPAP, BiPAP, high-flow oxygen, or mechanical ventilation whom are medically stable, continuous intermediate cardiac and hemodynamic monitoring, and patients requiring nursing interventions every 2 hours for <8 hours (pulse ox, neuro checks, complex wound care, glucose monitoring); vital signs hourly for up to 4 hours.

A multi-disciplinary approach to nursing care is utilized on the ICCU.
