We have got four services of Intensive Cares for various patients depending upon their criticality of illness, age, etc. and these are:
- Intensive Care Units (ICU)
- Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU)
- High Dependency Unit (HDU)
Our Intensive Care Units, also known as Critical Care Units, are equipped all sophisticated and accurate equipment as recommended in Clinical Establishment Acts. These units are managed by qualified, trained and skilled healthcare professionals.
Visiting hours are flexible, but there may be times when visiting is not advised, especially when doctor is on round, or some procedures are being carried out. The number of visitors allowed around the person’s bed may be limited.
To reduce the risk of spreading infection, visitors will have to clean their hands when entering and leaving the unit and you will be asked wear personal protective equipment. You may not be able to bring in certain things, such as flowers, food, etc. Avoid visiting if you’re ill.
The ICU staff will be on hand during your visit to answer any questions you have. In addition, they will keep you updating the conditions of the patient periodically.
Once a patient doesn’t needs intensive care, he/she can be transferred to a different wards to continue their recovery before finally getting discharged.
Many patients who leave an ICU will make a good recovery.
