PRMC ICU: Round-the-clock care
The PRMC ICU provides round-the-clock specialized nursing care for patients of any age who require medical, surgical, or coronary treatment. Each of the six units is equipped with advanced equipment that facilitates patient monitoring. Heart rhythms are continuously monitored to detect early changes or complications.
ICU patients appreciate visits from loved ones, but due to their condition, visits should be brief — no more than 15 minutes — and limited. Immediate family can visit briefly, while other visitors should get permission from the nurse.
- Only one or two visitors are allowed in the room at a time for safety and comfort.
- Clergy, legal guardians, or those with power of attorney may visit with permission from the nurse.
- Visitors must call 1325 from the waiting room for entry permission.
- Avoid coming between the hours of 8-11 a.m. when physicians are making rounds.
- No flowers or plants until the patient is out of ICU.
Waiting rooms are provided but if the patient’s condition has stabilized, we encourage you to go home and rest. If you leave us a phone number, we will notify you of any significant changes in the patient’s condition, day or night. You may also call the ICU at any time to check on the condition of a patient. That number is (620) 450-1325.
We understand that spiritual and emotional support can be important for our patients. Our Pastoral Care Department is available if you would like to speak with someone. Alternatively, if you would like us to contact your own minister, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Your well-being is our top priority.
Accelerated Care Unit
In the Accelerated Care Unit, patients receive more nursing care than they would on a typical medical or surgical unit. Although they do not need intensive care, they are still assigned to beds in the Intensive Care Unit and receive care from the ICU staff.
