All patients are assessed on an emergent needs basis and triaged accordingly. Although we do not serve as a major trauma center, appropriate referrals or transfers are made when services are needed that are not available at UT Health Northeast.

6th Floor, Building A
Tuberculosis patients are ususally here for simple medication management of TB medications. Nurses monitor medication intake through Direct Observation Treatment. Many patients have additional ailments, i.e. AIDS, Hepatitis, drug dependency, that require additional care and monitoring.
Hospice patients receive pain and symptom management, and may include IV pain medications, which required more complex monitoring. In addition, the patient’s family receives attention as they go through the grieving process, which can require nursing intervention.
