Intensive Care (ICU)
When a person has been rushed to an intensive care unit (ICU) it is because they are in a critical or life-threatening situation. Very often complete healing depends on the proficiency of the medical team, the close care of the nursing team and often, the latest technology in the field of emergency care.
Our Intensive Care Units cater to patients with the most severe and life-threatening illnesses and injuries. We understand all too well how important it is for them to receive constant, close monitoring and support from specialists and other medical personnel in order to regain their normal bodily functions.
This is why our ICUs are staffed by highly trained doctors and critical care nurses who specialise in caring for seriously ill patients. The level of care in an Intensive Care Unit is greater than that available in intermediate care units. Doctors and nursing personnel are available 24 hours a day to address the physical and emotional needs of critically ill patients and their families. Common conditions that are treated within ICU's include trauma, multiple organ failure and sepsis.
How our ICUs operate
Patients may be transferred directly to an Intensive Care Unit from:
- An Emergency Department if required
- A ward if they are rapidly deteriorating or
- Immediately after major surgery if the patient is at high risk of developing complications
