The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Hill Country Memorial provides support and expert care for seriously ill patients and those in unstable conditions.
The highly skilled ICU team at Hill Country Memorial has gone through rigorous training to detail the full gambit of patient problems, and to quickly and accurately make key decisions that can save lives or help patients to enjoy quicker and more complete recoveries.
Our ICU staff consists of experienced doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, clinical nurse specialists, pharmacists, physical therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dietitians, social workers, and chaplains.
This team works effectively to help patients on their way to recovery while keeping in close contact with the patient’s loved ones to ensure transparency and clarity at every turn.
ICU Visitation Guidelines
• We request that visitors be limited to two at a time for patients in the ICU. You are advised to stay inside the patient’s room during your visit. If you are asked to wait outside of the patient room, please return to the waiting area out of respect for the privacy of other patients.
• Visitors may be asked by the ICU staff to leave for short periods during doctor’s rounds, nurses’ reports, certain procedures, and emergencies.
• Visitors are asked not to visit when they have potentially infectious conditions, such as a respiratory infection or cold.• All ICU patient rooms have a bedside phone without a direct number. Patient family members and friends may call the ICU nurse’s desk and the call will be transferred into the room at the discretion of the patient and/or nurse. Patients and visitors may use their cell phones in the ICU.
