Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf
We have several telecommunications devices for the deaf (TDDs). These devices allow patients and visitors with severe hearing impairments to communicate over regular telephone lines with other TDD users. Please speak with someone at the front desk about using a TDD.
Lifts can be found on all patient floors and will help patients with limited mobility. Each lift can hold up to 600 pounds.
Patients with limited mobility often times need help getting out of bed. This can be a physically demanding task for patients and hospital staff.
In the old patient tower, when a patient needed to be lifted, equipment was brought into the patient’s room to assist in lifting so that the patient stays safe. This equipment was large and took up quite a bit of space.
In the new tower, permanent lifts have been installed in select rooms on all three patient floors. These lifts slide on tracks attached to the ceiling and when not in use, are stored in a cabinet near the patient’s bed. These lifts are readily available to help reduce the likelihood of injury for both patients and staff.
Special Care Rooms
A nurse can monitor a patient more closely with specialty care rooms.
Sometimes there are patients in the hospital, who because of their condition, need to be monitored on a constant basis. They could be a high risk for falling or have dementia, for example. These patients often require one-to-one supervision and our inpatient floors have rooms to make this efficient.
On the 4th, 5th and 6th floors, special care rooms have been created. The rooms feature a station from which a staff member can monitor patients in three one-to-one rooms at the same time and they have been configured so that each patient bed is easily viewable from the station.
“When these rooms were designed we wanted to have a care provider as close to these patients as possible to really give them that patient-centered care that we pride ourselves on at Mary Greeley,” says Amanda Lass, RN, clinical supervisor for Medical/Surgical. “These rooms help us provide close monitoring for a variety of patients. We can give them personal one-to-one care with the ultimate goal of keeping them as safe as possible.”
