TELE-ICU PROGRAM TEAM OF CAREGIVERS
Dr. Evan Roller, Washington University critical care anesthesiologist, is medical director of the Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital intensive care unit. Dr. Roller is an active faculty member of the Barnes-Jewish Hospital surgical intensive care unit and the tele-ICU medical team. He will be supported by Washington University critical care physicians who will lead on-site multidisciplinary rounds on each intensive care unit patient.
The critical care team will work together with our hospitalists, admitting physicians and staff to ensure safe, high quality critical care services. In addition to onsite expertise at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, tele-ICU monitoring services will be provided by Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
The tele-ICU program will provide an added layer of care and safety which would be helpful particularly at night. The 24/7 monitoring and support allows proactive intervention and collaboration among the team members. The program is the result of the drive to continually improve patient outcomes and implement best practices.
