Texas Health Dallas' New Intensivist Program Puts Critical-Care Specialists in the ICU - All the Time
Date:2/6/2009

ill patients."

The program is designed to improve outcomes and help patients recover more quickly from complex medical conditions, said Phyllis McCorstin, RN, clinical nurse specialist for critical care/cardiology services at Texas Health Dallas. But the critical-care intensivists aren't only in the ICU to address emergent medical problems that can arise but also to prevent complications.

"The benefits of the program may include decreasing the average length of stay in the intensive care units, decreased hospital readmissions, and increased patient satisfaction," McCorstin said. "It's an effective way to care for critically ill patients, and it increases the collaboration and communication between the various healthcare professionals caring for the patient."

Many major medical centers use hospital-based internists, called hospitalists, to provide care to patients -- even those in the ICU. The hospitalists then call an intensivist or other critical care specialist for a consult if a complication arises.

Texas Health Dallas' program includes multidisciplinary rounding, with evaluations from critical care physicians, ICU clinical supervisors, nurse practitioners and pulmonary therapists.
