Medical/Surgical Inpatient Department
The Medical/Surgical Inpatient Department at Perry County Memorial Hospital (PCMH) provides care for people of all ages who are recovering from illness, injury or surgery.
The Medical/Surgical Inpatient Department is on the second floor of the hospital. It features private, modern rooms designed to provide a comfortable environment for patients to heal.
The department features a team of nurses who have a wide variety of training and experience. Each of our nurses cares for no more than six patients at a time. This ensures that each patient gets prompt and personal care.
At PCMH, nursing care is based upon respect for the dignity and worth of every individual. We believe that each patient has the right to receive high-quality healthcare based on individual needs. To provide comprehensive care, all staff members work together as a team in developing a plan of care to fit each individual patient. Patients and their families are involved in care as well by establishing priorities to best meet the patient's needs.
PCMH also has hospitalists. Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in hospital-based care from admission to discharge. Our hospitalists manage and coordinate inpatient care, while working closely with your primary physician or specialist.
Other medical staff involved with Medical/Surgical Department's inpatient care include:
- Certified nurse aides.
- Social worker.
- Physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists.
