Your Regional Medical Center care team

We realize that a stay in the hospital or coming in for diagnostic tests  can be intimidating and produce anxiety for both patients and families. Our staff is committed to support you and your family, and we’ll do all we can to provide information, resources and top quality care.

Your Regional Medical Center care team consists of professional representing different components of your continuum of care, including:

Nurses

Nurses will be assigned to care for you each day, and their name and contact information will be written on the white board in your room. Our nurses work eight-hour shifts, so you will typically see three different nurses each day. Your nurse will check on you each hour (even while you’re sleeping) to assess your condition and see if you need anything. You can also use the call button on your bed to call your nurse.

Physicians

Regional Medical Center has a team of board-certified physicians that specialize in caring for hospitalized patients—in the emergency room, intensive care unit or on a surgical floor. Your personal physician may care for you during your hospital stay if he/she has active privileges with our medical staff. 

Certified nursing assistants

Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) typically provide assistance with bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and oral care. Your CNA is often the person who takes your vital signs and weight and height measurements.

Additional care team members include:

  • Environmental services representatives keep your room and our facility clean.
  • Lab technicians draw blood each morning to provide your physician with an update on your condition.
  • Imaging technicians obtain clear and accurate images, such as X-rays or CT scans.
  • Respiratory therapists deliver breathing treatments when needed.
  • Rehabilitation therapists (speech, physical and occupational therapists)
    provide therapies that help you on your path to recovery.
  • Case managers and discharge planners assist with your transition to the next phase of your recovery.
  • Registered dieticians and nutritionists develop the perfect dietary plan to aid in your healing.
