CCU is most important unit of a hospital that is considered as the backbone of all medical and surgical procedures. The department is highly on alert 24 hours critical care unit that is led by senior anaesthetists and physicians assisted by nurse practitioners, junior doctors, technicians, physiotherapists, nutritionists, radiology and imaging technicians. The aim of unit is to provide seamless care to critical patients. It is a multidisciplinary unit that handles patients from various specialties like general medical, pulmonology, nephrology, gastroenterology, neurology and cardiology.
This unique design of the unit enables us to reduce cross-infection rates, a factor so essential in caring for the critically ill.
Our CCUS are designed and managed based on the fact that methodical organisation of Critical Care services influences important overall outcome measures such as mortality, length of stay and infection rates. The complete unit is divided into 4 units to cater the service according to the needs
Critical care unit I – The unit is paramount of all as it serves as the isolation/special care unit that provides intensive and specialised care to our patients.
Critical care unit II – It is a level I critical care unit where patients needs invasive ventilation, monitoring and therapy
Critical care unit III – serves as level II critical care unit where patients need non invasive ventilation, monitoring and therapy.
Critical care unit IV – it is to house post anaesthesia care patients.
