You can be confident that you and your loved one will receive expert, compassionate care in our newly renovated 13-bed Intensive Care Unit. Our patient rooms are spacious, filled with natural sunlight, and offer state-of-the-art equipment. Specially trained Registered Nurses (RNs) monitor the patient’s progress and develop an individual plan of care for each patient. Other members of the multidisciplinary medical team include the Critical Care Physician, Respiratory Therapist, Physical and Occupational Therapists, Case Manager, Pastoral Care, Dietician, Pharmacist, Certified Nursing Assistants, and clerical staff. The entire team works collaboratively to ensure that the patient and family receive excellent quality care.
At St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center, we have some important help in making sure our patients are under constant care. The MaineHealth VitalNetwork is a computerized system that tracks vital signs and other important information about our patients. Experts at an off-site command center monitor this information. They are on duty 24 hours a day. The system can warn the staff about slight changes in the patient’s condition. Staff at the center can even talk to our staff through a video connection. This system is important, but it does not take the place of personal care. It is added care that helps the bedside staff care for your loved one.
