Graham County Hospital nurses are committed to providing high quality, efficient healthcare while assisting patients to meet their physical and psychological needs.
The nursing staff works with the medical staff to provide high quality, cost effective care using the latest in computerized documentation. The staff also works with the coordination with Infection Control, Risk Management and Patient Safety to provide a safe patient environment.
Graham County Hospital nursing staff consists of Registered Nurses and Certified Nurse Aides. Registered nurses are Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified as well as Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) certified. Nursing Aides are CPR certified and maintain that certificate while employed at GCH. The nursing staff is competent to recognize changes in a patients’ condition and perform thorough assessments, then work with your healthcare provider to lead the care team, to provide best patient care possible. Our patient – staff ratios are low allowing us to build relationships with our patients.
Graham County Hospital has a 25 bed occupancy that provides quality care for the acute or chronically ill patient. Care is provided for everyone from children through geriatrics. Care provided may be as an outpatient treatment, 24-hour observation status, in patient or in swing-bed.
