Locals Go Behind The Scenes Of Critical Care
May 24, 2011
Augusta, GA – It’s where the most critical patients are sent when time is not on their side. May is Critical Care Month and Doctors Hospital is giving the community an opportunity to see firsthand all that is involved with the Intensive Care Unit.
WHEN: Thursday, May 26, 2011, 4pm – 6pm
WHERE: Doctors Hospital, South Tower (Main Tower), Floor 3
WHAT: Critical Care Open House at Doctors Hospital
The Intensive Care Unit is one that many know about but thankfully have never seen. Critical Care Month allows the community to meet the doctors who care for 18 patients, on average, that are treated in the unit every day. Visitors will also be given access to tour the rooms on the unit.
“We have been hosting this event for years and every time we see more community members attend,” says Linda Fallen, Critical Care Services Director at Doctors Hospital. “This is the time of year when we have an opportunity to open our unit to the community to visit during a less stressful time. We share our knowledge and educate visitors about what makes our facility unique in this special care area. This is also a great time for children to tour the rooms and expose them to the equipment we use. We want people to see our unit for the wonderful treatment facility that it is, rather than the scary one they always hear about. This event gives us the opportunity to do that.”
