TBHC’s Center for Critical Care Services ensures that critically ill patients are being cared for by the most experienced intensive care physicians who oversee an interdisciplinary team, including nurses, residents and ancillary services. Their ability to manage complex multisystem critical illnesses dramatically enhances positive patient outcomes. The Center meets and exceeds the standards endorsed by the Leapfrog Group and all ICUs are compliant with those high standards.
Daily, this team meets to discuss the needs of each patient in the Intensive Care Unit. The center also conducts a critical care outreach service where a rescue squad led by the most experienced, expert attending physician available shows up to a patient in crisis anywhere in the hospital. The Center, which reflects the gold-standard of care, provides highest-quality care and peace of mind to patients, their physicians and family members.
The interdisciplinary huddle happens every morning so that every clinician who is involved in critical care discuss the ongoing management of each patient. This huddle is led by James Gasperino, MD, Medical Director for The Center for Critical Care Services, Chief Division of Critical Care Medicine, Chair of Medicine, Associate Chief Medical Officer, and Vice President for Critical Care.
