A care conference is a meeting that brings together the patient and/or patients’ family, nurses and other professionals involved in delivering your care. Any patient or family member can request a care conference. Together we become members of same health care team – a team completely focused on your healing through compassionate care.
Your Health Care Team
These are the medical professionals with whom you will interact with on a daily basis. All staff members of St. Croix Regional Medical Center must wear an ID badge with their name, department and photo.
Your hospitalist has responsibility for all decisions made that affect your care.
The nurse manager oversees the unit’s daily operations and is an excellent resource if you need assistance during your hospital stay.
During your stay in the hospital, nurses provide 24-hour bedside care and assistance. At any time, for any reason, if you have questions, needs or concerns we encourage you to bring it to your nurse’s attention. They are there to help you and will do everything they can to make you as comfortable as possible.
As part of the medical team, a social worker’s role is supportive, informational and educational. They can help assess your needs, provides counseling and will connect you to helpful community and hospital resources preparing you for discharge.
Therapists specialize in various aspects of your recovery. Physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists are a few examples of those who may be part of your extended health care team.
