Critical Care

Critical Care

The Critical Care Department provides round the clock comprehensive care and life support services to patients who are critically ill and require intensive monitoring by team of highly qualified, skilled and experienced intensivists and nurses. The patients with dysfunction or failure of one or more organ systems, like cardiac, pulmonary, neurology, liver and kidney, amongst others are admitted to a Critical Care Unit (CCU). The plan of care for the patient is prepared in consensus with the admitting specialist, the patient and the family. Periodic multi-disciplinary briefings on patient’s condition are provided to his/her family.

Infection Controls

  • Our infection control protocols pertain to a wide spectrum of interventions & have been developed jointly with intensivists & anaesthetists.
  • ICUs - high risk areas for patient where life threatening mistakes & omissions in care can occur.
  • Checklist of care should be addressed daily.
  • Critically ill patients highly vulnerable to health care associated infection, resulting in significant morbidity & prolonged length of hospital stay.
  • Responsibility of every member of the health care team to ensure compliance with hospital and unit infection control policies - like hand-washing before & after examining a patient; use of alcohol hand rubs; use of sterile barriers & disposable gloves; safe disposal of all sharps & patient consumables; & traffic control.
  • Bedside Analysis - checklist use has reduced ALOS & improved infection control indices.
