Acuity Adaptable Unit (AAU)
The Acuity Adaptable Unit at NCSH is an acute care unit designed to provide one on one care to patients who may require closer monitoring after they have surgery. It is a brand new addition completed in September 2019, that includes 2 spacious rooms designed to provide critical care to our patients. It is staffed with critical care nurses who will work closely with the Hospitalists and Surgeons to provide you with 24 hour cardiac monitoring, critical care drips, respiratory assistance or whatever else you may require. This gives us the ability to accommodate more complex post operative patients while keeping them here at NCSH.
