Health care providers like their acronyms! So is it any wonder when we talk about MSPS, you wonder what that is or why you're here? MSPS stands for medical, surgical, pediatrics and "swing bed" services. It's our primary inpatient care area where you will receive care if you are admitted to the hospital.
Each of the 19 private medical/surgical rooms are designed to provide a peaceful environment that supports the healing process. Each room is spacious, has a private restroom facilities, plenty of storage space to hide away your personal belongings, even a sofa bed for that special someone who may want to room with you for the night. Our nurses work closely with other health care professionals and physicians at OSF Saint Luke to provide a unified care plan that will provide for your speedy recovery.
Swing Bed Service
Wondering what it means to be in a swing bed? Our Swing Bed service allows patients who no longer need acute care in a hospital to move to another level of care before discharge, but without changing rooms. It's all part of making you as comfortable as possible while creating opportunities for your continued path to a full recovery. You may received physical therapy and specialized nursing care when you are admitted to the Swing Bed service, but you won't have to travel far for that care. It's all right here for you!
Your admission to the hospital is made by a physician on the OSF Saint Luke Medical Center staff. The physician who admits is responsible for directing your care while you are in the hospital. As the coordinator of your treatment plan, your admitting physician is best able to answer questions about your illness. To provide 24/7 accessibility to a physician, OSF Saint Luke assigns a "hospitalist" for your immediate care needs while you are hospitalized. The hospitalist works closely with your physician and other health care professionals to deliver your care.
Nursing care is provided 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to patients at OSF Saint Luke Medical Center. Our nursing care team includes professional registered nurses, licensed practice nurses and certified nurses' aids. Any member of our nursing staff can assist you with finding answers to questions about your care or treatment while in the hospitals.
