Delivering an excellent standard of evidence-based nursing care, the professional staff at Holy Cross Hospital has the specialized experience to care for patients. Our nurses practice in an environment that nurtures and strives for excellence in nursing care and outstanding patient outcomes. Drawing from experience and education, nurses apply clinical interventions to successfully ensure optimum care.
Educating patients about their hospital stay, recovery period, and ways to promote, protect and maintain their health is a priority at Holy Cross Hospital and a component of the overall plan of care. Each patient receives a learning needs evaluation and a comprehensive assessment. These tools are used to create an education plan and to guide the interventions specific to the needs of both the patient and his or her family.
