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.
