4-West is a twenty-four-bed limited stay medical/surgical unit with a population of patients requiring respiratory, general pediatric or surgical management. Each patient room is equipped with oxygen, compressed air, and suction along with state-of-the-art cardiorespiratory bedside monitors and computers that enable the healthcare team to access a patient's electronic medical record. These computers are also used in the barcoding administration of medications. Barcoding ensures patient safety by verifying that the correct medication is given to the appropriate child.
The goal of the unit is to provide very high quality, high value patient care. Patient and family needs are assessed, interventions provided and outcomes evaluated based on written departmental policies and procedures as well as multidisciplinary plans of care.
We are committed to delivering the most comprehensive care possible. This includes educating and providing hands-on training to patients' families, to ensure that caregivers are able to comfortably and confidently handle any home medical care that may be necessary. At each patient bedside there is an entertainment and educational TV system that helps nurses provide this education.
