Your Care Team
Our Team Is On Your Side
The physicians, nurses, and technicians at Bakersfield Heart Hospital work together to provide compassionate, quality care to patients.
Your caregiver team will consist of a Registered Nurse (RN) and a Patient Care Partner (PCP).
You may also receive care from our Respiratory Therapists, Radiology Technologists, Pharmacy personnel, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists and Dietitians during your stay. In addition, a Case Manager is on hand to assure patient care is coordinated, with the necessary resources, both within the hospital and when you leave the hospital. This includes patient, family and staff education, quality assessment and timely discharge.
When possible, services will be provided at your bedside. However, in the event you must be relocated for a particular test, your nurse, care partner, or technician will escort you and return you to your room as soon as the test is completed.
Staff members wear color-coded uniforms to assist you in distinguishing who is caring for you during your stay.
Registered Nurses-white shirts with white or navy blue bottoms.
Patient Care Partners-royal blue shirts and bottoms.
Housekeeping-red shirts with black bottoms.
Food Service-white shirts with black bottoms.
