ICU Intensive Care Unit & Critical Care Center of Excellence

At Joint Commission Internationally Accredited Doctors Hospital, we provide the highest standards of care utilizing the experience and expertise of our highly skilled team of medical and nursing staff as well as other health care professionals.

The Critical Care Unit at Doctors Hospital is a specialty care unit. It is operational 24 hours a day, each day of the year and is designed to provide a concentration of skills, equipment, and facilities for specialized medical and nursing care for the critically ill patient.
 
This unit is for the patient who requires continuous, comprehensive, and detailed intensive care because of the critical nature of the patient's disease or illness. A multi-disciplinary approach is utilized by consultations with our hospitalist, dietary, pharmacy, physical therapy, rehabilitative and respiratory therapy to meet the patient’s needs.
 
Specially trained and certified critical care doctors and nurses man the eight-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the sixteen-bed Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU) at Doctors Hospital round-the-clock. Both units feature state of the art equipment and specially designed beds that are capable of being repositioned as necessary to ensure complete comfort. ICU and IMCU are equipped with ventilators to help with breathing, specialized heart catheters to access a patient’s circulatory status, and apparatus for performing telemetry and haemodynamic monitoring, thereby increasing the accuracy of readings and measurements. 
 
The first Telemetry Unit in the region was opened in 1997 at Doctors Hospital. This unit was capable of monitoring the cardiac status or electrocardiogram of any patient within the hospital. The monitoring capacity was eight (8) at that time. On June 21, 2005, the Telemetry Unit was expanded to increase technology and upgrade. Additional telemetry monitors have been added to the Critical Care units. The unit can now monitor sixteen (16) rather than eight patients. Now every patient admitted to the Critical Care Unit will be monitored, improving the quality of care delivered to these patients. The ICU monitors have the capacity of haemodynamic monitoring, that is swan ganz, arterial, blood at Doctors Hospital, Nurses at the hospital are raising the bar on what it means to provide traditional bedside nursing care to patients. By monitoring the cardiac status of patients with telemetry, Doctors Hospital is raising the standards for their nursing colleagues; today, boasting the only Telemetry Unit in the region.
 
Our state-of-the-art, 24-bed Critical Care Unit has expanded with state-of-the-art-technology and innovative programs to become a Center of Excellence. It has been said that the ICU/IMCU at Doctors Hospital provides a level of care on par with major medical facilities around the world.
