Communicating with the Staff
We recommend one person be designated as the spokesperson. The family spokesperson will receive and relay patient updates to other family members, friends, and neighbors. Please leave that person's name and contact information with the ICU team. The ICU staff will contact the spokesperson about any serious change in your loved one's condition.

It is important to take care of your own needs as well. Please provide staff with your contact information so we may contact you if needed.
