observes Critical Care Awareness Month
May is designated Critical Care Awareness Month by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. McKenna Memorial Hospital is celebrating the contributions of critical care team members during the week of May 20 to 24. Visit our lobby display and learn more!
Hospital employees form ‘‘Partnerships in Care” to serve critically ill patients. Critical care partners include physicians, nurses, emergency medical technicians, lab technicians, X-ray technicians, dietitians, social service workers, educators, physical therapists and ministers.
The first member of the critical care partnership to interact with a patient is often the local emergency services team. At the hospital, nurses manage the patient’s daily needs. They are available to patients 24 hours a day to hold hands, encourage recovery, administer medications and share smiles. Critical care nurses and physicians work as a team to provide optimal care. Physicians depend on nurses to observe the patients and monitor their physical, social and mental condition; the nurse is often the physician’s eyes and ears. Patients confide their concerns, fears and needs with their nurse and the nurse shares this information with other critical care partners.
Critical care nurses prepare patients for various tests and surgeries by monitoring their diet and providing education. Nurses work with the social services and education departments to help patients and family members understand their medical condition and prepare them for recovery. Physical therapists help the patients regain mobility and build strength.
Another member of the Critical Care partnership is the respiratory therapist who monitors the patients’ respiratory
system and assists their breathing. Although physicians order respiratory treatments, nurses and respiratory therapists work together to choose the optimal treatment time— perhaps by allowing tire patients to sleep more or visit with their families without interruptions.
Laboratory technicians and phlebotomists visit critically ill patients regularly. Nurses are often the first to review lab results, so they must discern which results warrant immediate physician notification.
The dietitians and nutritional services staff plan and deliver meals according to the patients’ health status. Nurses keep these team members informed of the patients’ eating patterns, food preferences and difficulties encountered in eating or digesting meals.
Ministers and chaplains provide support and strength to the critically ill patient. Nurses assist by offering the hospital chaplain's services, calling a specific minister or personally ministering to the spiritual needs of the patient and his family.
The Critical Care Partnership can be likened to a symphony. The physician is the composer, laying down the notes and music. The nurses have a dual role of conductor and musician. The symphony of Critical Care Partnerships at McKenna Memorial wish happy music and health to you and your loved ones. For more information regarding Critical Care Nursing, visit McKenna’s main lobby during the week of May 20 to 24.
First State Bank celebrates first year downtown
First State Bank celebrated a successful first year at its downtown location this week.
The bank, which initially opened at a Common Street location, moved downtown in May 1995. The downtown building at 401 Main Plaza was purchased by First State Bank and the law firm Reagan Burrus Dierksen Lannon & Bluntzer.
Bank president Barry Williams said he is pleased with die growth of First State Bank this past year.
“We really appreciate all the people who have demonstrated confidence in us by beginning to do business with us this past year,” Williams said.
The number of employees at the bank has increased from two to 11.
Williams said First State Bank has its own niche in New Braunfels, attracting individuals, small businesses and professionals who prefer a small bank with independent ownership.
“We like to think we are more people-oriented than policy-oriented,” he said.
