Thank you for choosing UCLA for your healthcare needs and welcome to 8 North. We know that this may be a difficult time for you, and we look forward to creating a healing experience for you and your loved ones.
8 North is a medical-surgical unit that provides care to adolescent, adult and geriatric patients. We specialize in the care of patients with liver or hepatobiliary diseases and/or those who are awaiting or have undergone a liver resection or a liver, small bowel, pancreas, or kidney transplant. We use a team approach to assess our patients and to coordinate appropriate interventions and treatment plans.
By valuing the contributions of all staff, we are committed to providing safe and compassionate care. Through empowering our patients and their families, we promote open communication, advocacy and respect.
We encourage you to actively participate in your treatment plan. If you have any issues or concerns about your care, do not hesitate to share them with your nurse, the charge nurse or the unit director. We value your feedback and look forward to hearing about your experience while staying with us.
The 8 North nursing staff realizes that the illness or injury of a family member is an emotional and stressful time, and we believe that visitation is very important to support healing. With this in mind, our policies are designed to promote visitation while at the same time respecting your need for rest and healing. To achieve these goals, we ask that your visitors keep in mind the following guidelines:
Information about your condition is given only to immediate family members and is limited due to privacy reasons. We ask that family members designate a representative/spokesperson to receive updates. This also allows us to know who to contact when needed.
