Nursing Services and Inpatient Care at Meeker Memorial Hospital
Our highly-qualified and caring team of over 50 nurses provide family centered care from newborn to geriatric patients. As a patient you will receive 24-hour individualized care. Working with your physician our caring staff will care for you with skill and compassion. Patient education is ongoing throughout each patients stay. Before you go home, discharge planning consultation is provided to you. Our Discharge Planner will ensure that while you’re in the hospital and after your hospital stay, different care options are recognized, discussed with you and coordinated. Our medical/surgical/critical care area has state-of-the-art equipment including ventilator support and cardiac monitoring equipment. The nurse to patient ratio gives you the individualized and intensive treatment you need from nurses and medical staff trained in specialized monitoring techniques, patient assessment skills and administration of special medication like thrombolytic therapy or “clot busters” that reduce heart damage and accelerate recovery. Patients’ families receive special care and emotional support from our nurses and can use a comfortably furnished waiting area.
