Critical Care Department Details: At Sanford Medical Center, the care of critically ill adult patients occurs in three separate critical care units that are covered by the same nursing staff.
Critical Care 2000 is a 12-bed pulmonary/medical critical care unit. Critical Care 3000 is a 15-bed trauma/surgical/neurocritical care unit. Critical Care 2800 is a 12-bed acuity adaptable unit cares for the cardiothoracic and vascular surgery patients. Acuity adaptable beds allow clinicians to care for patients in all acuity levels in one environment. For example, a post coronary bypass patient can be recovered post-operatively, receive critical care, then transition to telemetry status and eventually discharge all in one room. The staff in this area is comprised of a mixed team of critical care nurses and surgical nurses for a particular time. Surgical and pulmonary intensivists also work collaboratively with physicians and this department to facilitate the full interdisciplinary needs.
