Inpatient Care

Inpatient Care

Adult Medical Unit in Shelbyville

Inpatient care is for patients who need more involved treatment for their medical condition. Patients receive their own room and bed in the hospital and have round-the-clock access to highly skilled doctors, nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and case managers. Inpatient care typically lasts between one overnight stay to two full weeks at the hospital. Each patient’s care is overseen by a hospitalist, who serves as your primary physician while staying with us. The hospitalist coordinates the efforts of your entire care team and keeps your primary care doctor updated on your condition.

The Inpatient Unit contains medical, surgical, orthopaedic, and critical care rooms. The goal of inpatient care is to help patients recover to the point where they can safely return home without risk of encountering a medical emergency. Whether you are recovering from surgery or need treatment for a chronic illness, our team can design a personalized care plan to help you get back home as soon as possible.

Visiting Hours

Keeping up patient morale is important in healthcare. Visits from friends and loved ones help people feel more at ease. The more relaxed a patient feels, the easier it is for them to heal and focus on recovery. Major Health Partners encourages visits and has an open visitation policy.

Though we encourage visits whenever possible, some restrictions need to be made for the safety and comfort of all our patients. Children under 14 will always need to be accompanied by an adult during their visit. Additionally, all patients must wear shoes and a shirt, and visitors who cause disruptions will be escorted out.

Visitors for hospice patients have free access and unrestricted visiting privileges, including 24/7 visit opportunities for adults and children.
