Inpatient Adult Medical Services
“We handle virtually everything for medical care and pre and post-op services,” says Kathy Chahanovich, RN, Nurse Manager, who has been with Harrington for 35 years. At Harrington, we coordinate all your inpatient care, working with medical specialists and surgeons as needed.
With 50 beds in two newly-renovated units in the hospital, Medical Services features personalized care and the latest technology. State-of-the-art offerings for patients include the Overhead Lift System, cardiac telemetry, and vital signs monitoring equipment. We have also a new direct nurse call system to facilitate patient care. An integrated Electronic Medical Record is currently being implemented.
Our new private and semi-private rooms, with beds that convert into chairs and flat-screen TVs, are welcome additions for many “old friends”…patients who in many cases have come to Harrington for generations. Patients appreciate our dedication to TLC (Total Local Care) and our high ratio of physicians (including hospitalists) and nurses to patients: We recorded a score of 99% in a recent Press Ganey survey on patient satisfaction.
Harrington also has a state-of-the-art monitoring system designed to improve support to patients in its Intensive Care Unit (ICU), known as the eICU program.
For special needs, we have an affiliation with cardiologists from University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
Referrals from your primary care physician are necessary.
