Inpatient Medical Surgical "Med Surg"

Our Inpatient Department is a 25- bed med surg unit seperated into two connecting halls. Our rooms are big and bright. St Josephs was built in 2013 so everything still feels new and fresh.

4 of our beds are designated as our Special Care Unit and used for IMC/progressive care patients.

Those beds can also be saved for swing beds allowing us to care for patients for up to 6 weeks.

Also within our unit is a negative pressure room and a specially designed hospice room that allows for more private space for the patient and their family.

We house equipment and supplies outside of the rooms for easy and efficient access.

Our nurses are typically working a 5 or 6:1 ratio, 4:1 on the Special Care Unit.

"It is truly a family environment we not only treat each other like family but our patients as well. I always say once you join our team or our floor you are now considered our family. This makes for a great learning environment for our newer colleagues as well. We consistently go above and beyond for our patients. It is not unusual for us to be signing happy birthday to a patient or celebrating an anniversary. We have even done a fun gender reveal for a patient who missed his great grand babies.

Another example of going above and beyond is we have bird feeders on the outside of our rooms for each patient that I fill myself. Our patients genuinely enjoy watching the birds come to their window and we love to spread a little joy.

I myself have been here over 11 years now and in my current position for over 5 years. We do have several nurses who have been here 5 plus years and recently a nurse who just retired from here after 30 years of employment." - Michelle Herzberg, Inpatient Nurse Director
