Medical Surgical intensive care

Medical & Surgical Intensive Care

Most patients recuperating immediately after elective or emergency surgery receive around-the-clock care in the 15-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The critically ill and surgical patients are cared for in the intensive care units.

A collaborative, multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals cares for approximately 1,500 patients annually who are recovering from conditions that require surgical intervention.

Fourteen attending doctors with experience in critical care rotate for 24-hour coverage of the ICU, alongside a nursing staff of 48.

Multidisciplinary Approach to Care

The medical and nursing staff, including clinical nurse specialists, collaborates with a multidisciplinary team of health care providers who contribute their skilled care in:

  • Respiratory therapy
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapy
  • Clinical nutrition
  • Mental health
  • Case management

Patients are only admitted to the medical-surgical intensive care unit if they are recuperating from serious illness or surgical procedure. They need round-the-clock monitoring of their vital signs.

Our Staff, at the SIDS Hospital, is specially trained to deal with the needs of these patients.

They also need help in understanding if the patient has been on any long-term medications, allopathic, ayurvedic, homoeopathic or any other home remedy – so that the doctors understand and prescribe new medications accordingly.

For the patient’s family members:

When will I know more about the patient’s health?

  • Details of the health and recovery are shared only with the patient’s next-of-kin.
  • You can ask about the Surgeon who performed the surgery or the physician under whose care the patient has been admitted to the hospital when he comes for a round of daily check-ups
  • Badgering the staff members and caregivers for information will not prove fruitful. They have been trained not to divulge information unless explicitly informed by the doctors.

When will the doctor visit to check up on the patient?

  • The surgeon who performed the procedure will visit the patient once a day (These are known as rounds). This may be either in the mornings or in the evenings, depending upon his schedule.
  • A close family member or the next of kin should be present during this time in case there are any questions or concerns that the family wants to be addressed. The doctor may also give instructions that need to be followed as part of the recovery process.
