We offer advanced neuro medicine care in our Neuro Medical Unit, located on the 14th floor of Intermountain Medical Center. We treat patients with a variety of neurological conditions, including:
- Acute stroke
- Brain tumors
- Cerebral bleeds
- Brain aneurysms
- Seizures (We conduct long-term seizure monitoring on our unit.)
- Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Myasthenia gravis
- Back and neck surgery patients who have been treated by a neurosurgeon
If your loved one is a patient in our Neuro Medical Unit, they will receive excellent care from our team of compassionate experts: neurohospitalists (physicians specially trained in treating patients with neurological conditions), nurse practitioners, and nurses who specialize in treating neurologic patients.
Length of Stay and Follow-up Care
You can expect your loved one to spend about 2-3 days on our unit, although it varies depending on the diagnosis.
What to Expect
Our goal is help improve your loved one's condition and prepare them for the most appropriate discharge option for their ability: a return to their home, a rehab center (including the Neuro Rehab Center on the 12th floor of Intermountain Medical Center), or a skilled nursing facility.
During their stay, a nurse will come into the room for frequent assessments, although not as often as when they were in the Neuro Critical Care unit. The nurse will help your loved one understand their condition and prepare him or her to return to the normal activities of daily living.
Physical, occupational, and speech therapists may also work with your loved one. They will assess their condition and recommend therapies to improve the healing process.
You and your loved one will also have access to a social worker and a case manager. They will help with your emotional needs and the preparation for when your loved one is able to leave our unit.
