ICU expands at Phoebe North

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital is expanding their technology to provide better care for all intensive care patients.

Equipment from Advanced ICU Care went online Tuesday afternoon at Phoebe North. It gives nurses 24/7 access to an intensive care team through a two-way video set-up in each patient's room. 38 rooms on the main campus received the technology last year.

Now, 12 rooms on the north campus have it.

"We want to provide all the citizens and all the community of this county with the same level of care," said Ernest Shock, Adult ICU Director.  "And this is something that is very important to safeguard our patients. And we want to make sure that we provide that same care no matter which hospital they go to within the community."   

The camera is pointed away from the patient when not in use. Nurses just have to press a button to access the main AICU center in St. Louis, Missouri.
