Campbell County Health is excited to announce the opening of the new
ICU Units at
Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming.
Come join us for a virtual tour!
First, let’s see the original rooms, built in the mid-1980s. This
is a typical Med/Surg room. You will notice the tight quarters between
the bed and chair – and this room doesn’t have any visitors,
family or medical equipment. The bathroom is equally as tight, particularly
with medical equipment such as a walker or wheelchair. Next we will see
an ICU room. Even in the 80s this type of care required additional equipment
which warranted larger rooms; however, notice the toilet is part of the
room and there isn’t a shower.
On to the new rooms. All patient rooms are accessible through the Main
Entrance of the hospital. Use the East Elevators in the Main Lobby to
reach the shared ICU and Med/Surg lobby, which is spacious and full of
natural light. You may notice patients coming and going in this area,
as there is now have a dedicated physical and occupational therapy gym
for patients to gain strength and confidence. Unit secretary stations
greet visitors upon entry to either unit.
Let’s go on in.
The whole goal of new patient rooms is put the patient at the center. The
rooms are generally all the same layout and shape. Note the distinctive
flooring to identify a six-foot perimeter around the patient as well as
a separate sink for providers and visitors – all promoting increased
infection prevention. Additionally, patients have a direct line of sight
to the bathroom and their care board. Studies show that direct line of
sight to the bathroom reduces falls and injuries. Each bathroom has enough
room for medical equipment such as wheel chairs, walkers and providers.
Employee efficiency and safety were also part of the designing process.
Nurse workstations just outside the patient room allow for greater efficiency
and more time for patient care. Supply cabinets or nurse servers provide
quick, bedside access to medical supplies and overhead patient lifts in
several rooms promote fewer employee injuries.
On behalf of the CCH
Board of Trustees, Administration and employees we welcome you to our modern patient rooms
that will serve our community well into the next 40 to 50 years.
