Medical-Surgical Care Unit
At Inland we understand that being in the hospital rather than at home is stressful for patients and their families. And we work hard to make our Medical Surgical Care Unit especially warm, cheerful, and comforting.
Since our nurses and C.N.A.s work in teams to care for a small number of patients together, they get to know their patients and how best to serve them. Oftentimes the physical therapist who worked with a patient in the hospital, will continue that therapy when the patient moves to Lakewood Continuing Care Center, or back to his or her home.
Along with close attention to medical needs, we pay attention to the little things that make our patients more comfortable. Our staff is sensitive to the dignity of our patients and the need for privacy during this trying time.
Volunteers visit to offer books, magazines, video movies, snacks and drinks. They also bake muffins in the morning and cookies in the afternoon in the kitchen close to patient rooms so the aroma of home-baking wafts through the area.
Trained pet therapists bring friendly dogs to visit throughout the hospital and if the family pet wants to visit, that's OK, too.
Inland’s Safe Care Together initiative involves patients and their families every step of the way during their hospital stay - keeping them involved, informed and safe. Learn ways you can get more involved in your healthcare by asking questions, knowing your medical history and much more!
Special Care Unit
When your medical needs are critical, our four-bed Special Care Unit is staffed by specially trained critical care nurses and equipped with all the technology necessary to care for seriously ill patients.
Even during the most serious illnesses, however, our SCU staff keeps in mind that your dignity, privacy and comfort are of supreme importance. We try to meet personal and family needs in addition to those that are strictly medical.
