The medical surgical unit at Saint Alphonsus Baker City is an 18 bed unit which cares for both surgical patients and patients with various medical diagnoses. Our knowledgeable patient care staff of registered Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants is experienced in the care of patients of all ages.
Our patient care team takes great pride in responding quickly to our patient's needs. Your care team will consist of a registered nurse and a certified nurses aide who will provide for your medical and personal care needs during your hospitalization.
Unlike many medical surgical units which only require their nursing staff to be certified in basic CPR, all of our registered nurses are required to be certified in both Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Life Support. All of our Certified Nursing Assistants are also required to have advanced training through a CNA 2 program. This additional training is required to ensure your safety during your stay with us.
All of our rooms are capable of cardiac telemetry monitoring and most of our rooms are equipped with dedicated electronic vital signs monitors at the bedside. We provide the best of advanced technological hospital care in a friendly small town atmosphere.
