Intensive Care Unit
Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is an 14-bed, state-of-the-art critical care area, designed to allow constant observation by a nurse. Our nurses are certified in Advance Life Support as well as Basic Arrhythmia (heart) care.
Our ICU encompasses the care of patients within the full health/illness continuum. Each room is equipped with telemetry or hardwire electrocardiography (ECG) to measure heart function, pulse oximetry to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood, and non-invasive blood pressure monitoring. Telemetry equipment is for patients who require heart monitoring while ambulatory, and hardwire ECG is used with most patients confined to a bed.
Each patient receives individualized care to enhance his/her
well-being and improve health outcomes. We are dedicated to excellence in the delivery of care which is compassionate, patient- and family-centered, and consistent with the needs of our patients. Fundamental to this mission is our commitment that all patient visits to JSMC meet and exceed expectations. We strive to relieve suffering, maintain security, promote health, and when the need arises, meet death with respect and dignity.
The staff of our ICU provides individualized care for the whole being. We involve patients and family members to develop an appropriate treatment process in collaboration with the registered nurse, physician, social worker, pastoral care, dietician, respiratory therapist, and other ancillary care providers to address key physiological and psychosocial needs.
The ICU is located on the second floor of the hospital. For more information, call (270) 887-7263.
