Step Down Unit

The Surgical Step-Down Unit is a two-room, six bed monitored unit created to care for patients who have undergone surgery.

After having surgery, the post-recovery phase is very critical. In order to provide the highest quality of care to our patients, the nurse's station was built in each room to keep the nurses where they are needed the most, at the bedside! The nurse-to-patient ratio is 1:3 and they have completed an 8-week intensive educational course as well as attended classes in EKG and ACLS.
