St. Elizabeth Healthcare has partnered with Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s largest provider of tele-ICU services to deliver monitoring by highly trained intensivist physicians and critical care nursing specialists 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
From their central, off-site location, the Advanced ICU Care team continuously monitor patient data — including vital signs, medications, lab results and trends in patients’ clinical status — and collaborate with the bedside critical care team.
The Advanced ICU Care® tele-ICU program provides an extra level of care that ensures patients are closely monitored every second of the day by an additional team of physicians and board-certified critical care specialists. With this constant level of highly skilled care, key changes in a patient’s condition are detected at the earliest opportunity, which ultimately improves our patients’ outcomes. This constant monitoring ensures that help is available when needed.
We understand how difficult an ICU stay can be for patients and their families. St. Elizabeth Healthcare is committed to providing the highest level of care and support to reduce the stress and anxiety that often accompanies a serious illness or injury. If you have any questions about our intensive care unit or tele-ICU program, please talk with your physician or bedside nurse.
