Dedicated to Creating Positive Patient Experiences and Influencing Optimal Health Outcomes.
Ireland Army Community Hospital’s Department of Nursing offers you over 100 years of combined competency and experience. Our Nursing Practice is evidence-based and incorporates the latest strategies to achieve your overall healthcare goals.
Supporting our patients’ healthcare needs is a fundamental objective of this nursing team. Our patients' goals and values vary widely and are not predictable on the basis of disease or procedure alone.
Our Nursing team believes the best way to determine the wants and needs of our patients is to involve them in their own nursing care. We feel this is our ethical and professional duty as research shows that patients who are more involved with their own care tend to have improved outcomes.
We provide nursing care that welcomes your opinion and respects your voice as patients. We are dedicated to creating positive experiences with all our services.
"Operating with Pride"
Our goal is to provide you and your family members the best possible care when undergoing surgery by providing a professional, well-trained nursing staff and a safe, sterile environment. Our OR nurses have a unique and demanding role that requires a great deal of dedication, compassion and professionalism. Our current nursing staff has over 110 years of combined nursing experience and it shows in the success of our patients!
We serve over 120 thousand eligible beneficiaries in a six state region!
The mission of the Operating Room is to provide and promote total, optimal and safe nursing care to all patients in accordance with accepted professional nursing standards, policies, and as directed by the Chief, DON, and Commander, IRACH. Peri-operative nursing must maintain and support the necessary programs that are essential to the various skill levels of personnel assigned within the section in order to promote and sustain a high level of "quality" nursing care.
The Operating Room Nursing Section has a responsibility to all of its employees to treat them as individuals, recognizing that each individual has certain basic human rights and privileges. The Section also has the responsibility in providing for their welfare, personal growth, and development. We have an obligation to treat everyone within our scope, patients and personnel alike, with dignity and respect.
