Intermediate Care Unit
The Neurocare Intermediate Care Unit (IMC) provides care to patients who have acute medical problems, such as those with a diagnosis of the central nervous system, seizure and neuromuscular disorders. In addition, the Neurocare IMC offers postoperative care to patients after neurosurgical procedures.
The healthcare team uses a relationship-based care model to deliver their services that will assure continuity and consistency in the care they provide. This group consists of doctors, nursing staff, rehabilitation and respiratory therapists, a social worker, and case managers. Patient care rounds are held every morning to discuss the clinical progress of each patient. The team also works with both patient and family to assess and then make a care plan that will meet their individual needs.
The nursing team of the Neurocare IMC consists of highly skilled, professional practitioners who embrace the interdisciplinary team approach. The goal is to achieve positive outcomes. This approach is aligned with the University of Maryland Medical Center's Pillars of Excellence: People, Service, Safety & Quality, Stewardship, and Innovation.
