WASHINGTON, District of Columbia - Trisha Lindsey, a nurse specialist assigned to Naval Medical Center San Diego's (NMCSD) Joint Tele-Critical Care Network (JTCCN), provides support to a remote intensive care unit (ICU) via tele-confrence in the hospital's JTCCN office Sept. 17. The JTCCN provides critical-care support to remote, bedside intensivist teams, known as spoke sites, via state-of-the-art audiovisual communication and computer systems. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the way many facets of healthcare are conducted, and NMCSD has adapted some of its techniques and practices to keep both staff and patients safe while delivering the high-quality healthcare they’ve come to expect. NMCSD’s mission is to prepare service members to deploy in support of operational forces, deliver high quality healthcare services and shape the future of military medicine through education, training and research. NMCSD employs more than 6,000 active duty military personnel, civilians and contractors in Southern California to provide patients with world-class care anytime, anywhere.
