What is the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) in Zenith Hospital?
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a unit in the Zenith hospital where critically ill patients are treated by specifically trained staff. The ICU staff includes doctors, attendants, respiratory therapists, clinical nurse experts, pharmacists, physical therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dietitians, social workers, and specialists.
Care in the ICU varies from other hospital units and departments.
Critically ill patients require close observation and monitoring. Specially trained nurses care for an individual or two patients at a time, each shift. ICU specialists are specifically trained critical care doctors. Patients may have specialized equipment in their room, depending on their situation and condition. The equipment in the ICU may seem overwhelming. Patients are attached to machines to monitor their heart, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. Ventilators (Breathing Machines) support some patients with breathing until they can breathe on their own.
Visiting Guidelines for ICU.
We suggest that visitors be confined to two at one time for patients in the ICU. You are advised to stay in the patient’s room during your visit. If you are asked to wait outside of the patient room, kindly return to the waiting section out of respect for other patient’s privacy.
Visitors will be directed by the ICU staff to leave for short periods during doctor’s rounds, nurses’ report, certain methods, and emergencies.
Doctor’s rounds generally occur during the morning, early evening, and at midnight. Due to patient privacy concerns and the proximity of our patient rooms to each other, visitors will be asked to leave the unit seldom when doctors are rounding on their patients or the patients on both sides of the patient they are visiting. Visiting may continue once the team is at least two doors apart from the patient.
Visitors are informed not to visit when they have possibly infectious conditions (for example respiratory infections – “colds”).
Why Are Patients Admitted to the ICU
Patients are treated in ICU for a variety of reasons. Some patients need close monitoring immediately after a major surgical operation or severe head injury. Others may have difficulties with their lungs that require ventilator support with breathing.
