Acute Care/Critical Care in Cody
Attentive Medical Care for Serious Illnesses and Injuries
The Acute Care and Critical Care units at Cody Regional Health are patient-focused,
family-friendly units where care is provided for acutely ill medical,
surgical, pediatric, and psychiatric patients of all ages.
Our highly qualified personnel – including physicians, nurses, nursing
assistants, visual observation staff, and unit clerks – work as
a team to ensure we are meeting the needs of the patient and family. Our
staff members perform a wide variety of duties, frequently coordinating
with other departments and health care providers to fulfill the physical,
emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial needs of the patient.
Family Visits & Discharge
Families are encouraged to participate and become involved in the care
of the patient, both in the hospital and after the patient is discharged
home. We talk with patients and families about their hospital stay and
about what to expect afterwards.
Before a patient’s discharge, we provide education on many issues
- Side effects
- Safe mobility
- Diet restrictions
- Physician follow-up appointments
- Signs and symptoms to report
- And many other issues
We also have a nice family waiting area, with children’s game and
activities, internet access, and comfortable furniture for relaxing.
