The Nursing Team on the Medical Unit

The Medical unit is home base.  This is where the patient arrive and where they return after surgery once they are released from the PACU.  In asking the nurses to help me tell their story they said, "This is where the patient first arrive at Santo Tomas.  Then we help prepare them for surgery.  After surgery we help to manage their pain, and try to keep them as comfortable as possible.  The key to managing the pain, is that the better managed it is, the better the patients are able to tolerate and maximize their physical therapy.  And, of course, the more they can immerse themselves into their physical therapy, the faster they can get to their ultimate goal......Operation Walk!.......
