Our Medical Staff
Your admitting physician supervises your care, and, if necessary, works with physicians in other specialties. Your physician will order your diet, prescriptions, laboratory tests and medications.
Hospitalists are physicians who are trained to manage the care of patients in the hospital. They are often specially trained in issues that affect inpatients such as pain management, antibiotic resistance and patient safety. Many family doctors and internists use hospitalists to care for their patients while they are in the hospital. At Warren Hospital, our hospitalists are all Board certified in internal medicine. They are in the hospital providing care at all times.
St. Luke's Warren Campus is a teaching hospital with resident physicians who provide an added dimension to your care while taking advanced training in the specialty branch of family medicine. These physicians, all highly-skilled medical school graduates, are available around the clock to assist our physicians with providing the best possible care of our patients. Resident doctors work under the supervision of faculty members in conjunction with your personal physician.
Your care and comfort are the continuing concern of our staff of nurses and assistants who have been chosen on the basis of their education, knowledge and efficiency. Registered nurses have formal and ongoing training that assures a high level of professional care. The registered nursing staff of your unit also includes a clinical coordinator, who is responsible for the clinical and administrative management of the area. Our nursing assistants are specially trained to perform a variety of bedside duties.
The Collaborative Assessment Team
St. Luke's Warren has a Collaborative Assessment Team comprised of specially trained medical personnel to come to the patient’s bedside in an emergency and help the primary caregivers manage the situation. Although we hope that you or your loved one never need these services, you can rest assured that the Team is another way we are partnering with patients and families to provide the highest quality, safest care possible.
If you have a concern about your own or your loved one’s medical condition, please notify your nurse. If you feel the nurse has not properly addressed your concern, please dial “0” for the Operator and ask for the Nursing Supervisor.
