Our team of acute care professionals put their skills to the test every day to effectively diagnose and treat those who seek care.

Infection Control

An important part of healing is maintaining a safe hospital environment. That's why the Infection Control Department at Iroquois Memorial Hospital follows strict procedures to prevent and control the spread of infections in patients and staff.

Hand washing is key in preventing the spread of infections. The staff at Iroquois Memorial must wash their hands before and after providing care to all patients. We hope that visitors will follow this example by washing their hands before and after a visit to our hospital. For the protection of the community as well as for their own health, hospital staff may wear gowns, masks, and gloves while treating patients.

During certain high-risk situations, isolation may be necessary for a patient. Isolation typically entails a private room with a sign posted on the door stating what precautionary measures should be taken prior to entering. In case of isolation, we will explain our procedures in more detail to you and your family.

Progressive Care Unit

The Progressive Care Unit (PCU) at Iroquois Memorial Hospital provides 24-hour nursing care for critically ill patients requiring closer monitoring than can be provided on the general floors. Combining medical, surgical and cardiac care as required, our highly qualified staff provides cost-effective, high-quality, and safe care.

IMH's Progressive Care Unit (PCU) provides 24-hour, continuous heart monitoring for a broad spectrum of patients suffering from acute and chronic illnesses. You will be connected to a wireless monitor that a telemetry-trained technician will be monitoring 24-hours a day. Our telemetry system allows doctors and nurses to continuously monitor patients of all ages - even when they are out of the room. This system also allows for a high level of surveillance as vital information is displayed at the central nurses' station, and if a patient needs immediate medical attention, they are ready to respond.

The staff at Iroquois Memorial Hospital understand that a stay in the PCU can be a difficult time for you and your loved ones. We ensure that the IMH staff is adequately prepared to deliver exceptional care and promote successful patient outcomes on an ongoing basis. Our nursing staff participates in daily multidisciplinary meetings, bedside handoff reporting, and unit leader rounding. We engage in skilled communication and collaboration with Iroquois Memorial's multidisciplinary team to ensure that our patients are active participants in making informed decisions regarding their care and treatment.

Our PCU staff members are specially trained to provide advanced care to patients suffering from a range of critical conditions, including: 

  • Cardiac conditions requiring telemetry monitoring
  • Stroke
  • Cancer or orthopedic surgery (total knee and hip
    replacements, as well as broken bones)
  • Post-operative patients such as gallbladder removal and appendectomies
  • Severe pneumonia
  • Sepsis or other serious or systemic infection
  • Chronic or complicated nonhealing wounds
  • Inpatient hospice
  • Plus, management of chronic conditions such as COPD, CHF, Diabetes, and Hypertension

Our highly-skilled, professional team of RN's, patient care technicians, and CNA's are trained and dedicated to restoring our patients' health and wellness through the provision of safe, high-quality, exceptional, compassionate, patient-centered care. All staff members are certified to provide Basic Life Support and provided with EKG training yearly. Our nurses also maintain Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, in addition, National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale certifications.

We take pride in the provision of healthcare services to our community. Our staff has over 100 years of nursing experience along with over 40 years of combined telemetry experience in the PCU.
