Welcome to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

  

 

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is located on the second floor of the new inpatient building.

We are open 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

We can accommodate up to six patients and the unit is staffed by a team of experienced doctors, nurses and allied health professionals.

We provide intensive and high dependency care to a variety of medical and surgical specialties including
Gastrointestinal, ENT, Orthopedic and Vascular surgeries, Trauma services, General and Respiratory medicine,
Obstetrics and Gynecology and Paediatric services.

The unit actively participates in ongoing research and trials to provide optimum level of care.

 

Visiting Hours


We welcome you to visit your loved ones.

Visiting hours are from 8am and the main doors close at 8pm. Use the intercom outside the ICU doors so we can let you in.

You can visit outside visiting hours, just let the nurses know ahead and the security downstairs.



Visitors and children


If you are feeling sick we discourage you from coming to the hospital as there is a high risk of spreading viruses and bacteria.

Patients can be easily tired and overwhelmed especially if there are a lot of visitors. So we suggest to have two visitors at a time and just take turns. The busiest hours for us would be between 9-11 in the morning as patients are being seen by the doctors at that time.

Children may come to visit but it is important to prepare them well and they need to be supervised.



Hygiene


You can disinfect your hands with sanitising pumps that are located all over the hospital or wash your hands before entering and after visiting.

Some patients will need additional hygiene measures and the nurse will advise you of this. We discourage bringing in flowers and plants because these can often be associated with infection.

 

Smoking


Smoking is not allowed inside the hospital or anywhere on the hospital grounds.



Mobile Phones


Mobile phones can be used inside the unit but they can interfere with some machines, so just talk to the staff first before using them.

We encourage you to put your cellphone on vibrate or silent mode.


Parking


Parking is free and there are spaces provided for visitors.


Accommodation


If you are visiting from overseas or out of town and you have no family or friends who can stay with, accommodation is available at the Paimarie Units which are located just outside the hospital.

This is subject to availability.
