Our nursing department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We provide outpatient, emergency, observation, and inpatient care. The nurse to patient ratio is kept low to ensure the staff can provide the quality of nursing care each patient needs. We have nurses skilled in emergency and acute care. We are currently working to meet benchmark standards in medication safety, fall prevention, acute myocardial infarction care, pneumonia care, and congestive heart failure care. The nursing department strives to go the extra mile in providing care to return patients to their optimum level of health.

At Sumner County Hospital District #1, patients do not have to have to be physically moved to a different room or unit when they are transferred from acute bed status to skilled bed status. For our patients’ convenience, they remain in their own rooms if their status changes. We found that changing patients to “skilled” status and allowing patients to stay in the same room provides may benefits including:
More time to recover following an illness or surgery
Less expensive care than an acute hospitalization
Helps to keep patients oriented to surroundings and staff
Reduces the possibility of lost items
Reduces relocation confusion for friends and family
As Patients progress, one factor that always remains constant is the devoted attention of our highly skilled nursing staff
