St. Angela Ventilator and Special Needs is a unique area located within St. Jane de Chantal that offers a holistic approachto care with emphasis on the mind, body and spirit connection.
St. Angela's has been providing specialized care since 1985. The unit consists of 38 beds for both patients who are ventilator-dependent and those with low level traumatic brain injuries, complex wound care or who require IV nutrition therapy.
Residents on the St. Angela's ventilator program require a minimum of 10 hours of ventilator treatment per 24 hours, but most are on the ventilator at all times.
Special needs program residents have higher nursing care requirements than cannot be met in a typical nursing facility. They may be on the ventilator at night only, or they may have chronic illness, or have stage 3 or 4 chronic wounds requiring specialized dressing, treatments and specialized beds or lower level traumatic brain injury.
St. Angela's utilizes an interdisciplinary team approach to care. Professional nursing and respiratory care is offered 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The high nurse to patient ratio makes this unit ideal for complex patient care.
