Adult Ophthalmology Nursing Services provides nursing care for patients 15 years and older and serves patients who require inpatient tertiary care and treatment for anterior segment, external disease, oculoplastics, orbit, glaucoma, vitreoretinal, and neuro-ophthalmology conditions. Patient care needs vary widely, between those requiring minimal assistance with activities of daily living and those who are entirely dependent on assistance, in view of their ophthalmic or medical conditions, age, and neurological status.

 

Each patient is admitted on the order of the ophthalmologist after clearance by the Medicine Department is obtained. The patient is under the care of both the ophthalmologist and the assigned Medicine Department physician throughout hospitalization, with consultation from an anesthesia physician for those patients undergoing surgery. A patient companion provided by the patient’s family is authorized for specified patients in accordance with hospital policy. This companion provides support to the patient and assists the patient with activities of daily living as necessary.
