Critical Care Unit With eICU
Sutter Amador Hospital
A 6-bed critical care unit provides onsite, around-the-clock care for critically injured and ill patients. The effectiveness of this local care is significantly enhanced through Sutter Health's electronic intensive care unit (eICU). Sutter Health is the first health care system in the western United States to implement this technology that enables highly qualified critical care physicians and nurses to examine, diagnose and monitor ICU patients in real time from a remote location.
Independent studies indicate that the involvement of a physician specializing in critical care increases the probability of surviving life-threatening episodes.
Critical Care Visitor Information
Family and friends can be "good medicine" for patients. We encourage families to participate in care and healing through open visitation with the following restrictions:
- Children under the age of 16 must be supervised by a responsible adult, other than the patient, at all times.
- Visitors must use the phone located by the entrance to the department to contact Critical Care staff for permission to visit.
- There may be times when staff will request visitors to leave the bedside in order to provide care.
- Acts or threats of violence, intimidation, vandalism or verbal abuse are not allowed under any circumstances. Anyone engaging in these behaviors will be directed to leave.
