Critical Care Medicine
Grand View Health’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides comprehensive care for patients with complex health problems. The unit also cares for seriously ill or injured patients who require close observation and constant care.
A critical care specialist, known as an intensivist, works alongside other specialists to provide comprehensive care to patients within the Intensive Care Unit. Intensivists are board certified physicians that have specialty training in the practice of critical care medicine. The intensivist conducts multi-disciplinary rounds on a daily basis with nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, social workers and case managers. This facilitates communication of a patient’s plan of care among all health care providers and allows for an opportunity to address patient and family concerns.
Our intensivists are capable of dealing with a broad spectrum of illnesses spanning multiple organ systems and will coordinate your care while you remain in the Intensive Care Unit.
We ask all our patients to choose one family member to receive information about the loved one. This person must provide the nurse with contact information for the nurses and doctors to supply updates. We expect that the contact person will share updates with other family members. A courtesy call will be made by the nurse each morning between 6:30 – 7:30 am to update the contact person on the patient’s condition through the night. Also, the staff will notify the contact person right away of any significant changes.
Visiting hours are from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm for immediate family or visitors designated by the patient. You may visit anytime during these hours. Brief visits are most beneficial. Please limit the number of visitors within the room to three and be advised that we may ask you to leave the room at any time to provide personal or emergency care.
For the benefit of your loved one, children under the age of 12 are permitted only with advanced notice and during regular visiting hours. Family members are requested to call the ICU before bringing children to the unit. For your comfort, a family waiting room is located just outside of the ICU. Vending machines, located at the entrance of the family waiting area provide cold beverages and snacks. Clergy may visit at any time.
