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.
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.
