HSHS St. Mary’s Family Care Unit (FCU) is located on the fifth floor of the hospital and serves the acute care needs of medical, surgical and pediatric patients. The unit’s design promotes staff efficiency in providing patient comfort. Every room is stocked with frequently used supplies with each wing of the unit having its own nurse’s station. As a result, the staff takes fewer steps to accomplish tasks which allows for them to spend more time with their patients. To promote patient comfort, many of the rooms on the floor are private and have shower facilities within the room. The unit is equipped with many technologically advanced features that improve safety for both the patients and the staff.
PediatricsAn area of the FCU has been designated for pediatric patients. Since children might find the hospital to be a frightening place, procedures are done outside of their room in a pediatric exam room.
To increase the safety of these younger patients, a security system is used. Children wear a banded tag that will lock doors or elevators if anyone tries to remove them from the unit without authorization. The system may also be used for older patients who tend to wander.For more information about the Family Care Unit call 815.673.4515.
