Vibra Hospital uses an interdisciplinary team approach to care that helps our patients return to the highest quality of life possible. In addition to our core services, we offer:
Your clinical treatment is the chief responsibility of your physician. As a member of the medical staff, your physician makes the necessary arrangements for laboratory services, X-rays, medications, special diets and any other treatment or service. Our attending medical staff consists of physicians from Pulmonary, Infectious Disease and Critical Care Consultants, Inc. (of Sacramento) and the University of California Davis Medical Center Department of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. Highly qualified consultants in all major specialties comprise the remainder of our physician staff.
Nursing services are provided around the clock to meet each patient’s unique needs. Through the Department of Nursing, care plans are created in conjunction with physicians, therapists and specialists in other disciplines. Care conferences, held every week for each patient, are integral parts of the care planning process. We have certified wound care nurses to assist in this special area of nursing.
Under the direction of the medical staff, our team of respiratory therapists evaluates, treats and manages patients with cardiopulmonary problems. They also provide preventive care. We specialize in weaning patients from the ventilator.
Using advanced equipment, the radiology staff performs a variety of X-rays and diagnostic services that play an important role in diagnosing many illnesses.
Surgical services are available for patients around the clock. If necessary, for some specialty procedures, patients may be transferred to another facility.
Operating under the direction of a physician, the laboratory is responsible for conducting any tests that are ordered. Our advanced equipment performs tests accurately and quickly, with results available on the same day whenever possible.
An integral part of the patient care team is our staff of licensed pharmacists. They prepare medications and provide special dietary supplements necessary for proper nutrition.
Food Services and Nutrition Support
The goal of our dietitian is to strive to meet your nutritional needs and prepare diets as ordered by your physician. The dietitian also performs periodic nutritional assessments and monitors your nutrition plan. Please make the dietitian aware of your food preferences and any food allergies you may have.
Our physical therapists are an integral part of your rehabilitation process. Under the direction of your physician, they evaluate, treat and provide rehabilitation for muscular, skeletal, neurological and circulatory diseases.
The work of the occupational therapist helps promote independence in daily living skills such as feeding, bathing, dressing and grooming. The goal we strive toward is to increase your strength, endurance and coordination.
When required, a licensed speech and language pathologist provides therapy to improve your speaking and swallowing skills as much as possible.
A wide range of social services – including counseling, discharge planning, referrals to community agencies and securing medical equipment for home use – is provided. Family members are also invited to take part in counseling.
There are chaplains on standby to assist you and your family with any needs or concerns. Your minister is also welcome to visit at any time.
Our clinical liaisons provide on-site patient assessments and hospital tours, and they coordinate patient admittance with physicians, families and insurance companies. Educational services and programs are also provided to area hospitals and healthcare organizations.
Upon request, the ethics committee is available to assist regarding ethical issues.
