Surgical Intensive Care is a specialty of intensive care related to the care and treatment of patients who are seriously or critically ill after surgery. Sometimes patients may be admitted to the SICU as a precaution, to monitor them to prevent deterioration. At WIF Women and Newborn Hospital, our SICU units closely monitor our patients, in cases where they exhibit unstable symptoms. Patients requiring surgical intensive care may need support to stabilize their blood pressure or breathing, kidney function, heart rhythm or support organs that are not functioning.
At WIF Women and Newborn Hospital, we have a state-of-the-art, round-the-clock SICU to care for expectant mothers, whose conditions may be unstable and volatile. We have a team of specialists in critical care related to maternity, with the knowledge and skills to provide comprehensive care for patients who are faced with difficulty during delivery.
In the unlikely event that a mother’s condition will need longer intensive care monitoring, our doctors ensure that her health is stabilized at WIF Women and Newborn Hospital’s SICU, before being transferred to the nearest WIF Women and Newborn Hospital. Our transfer procedures are robust, and ensure that our patients deal with minimal disruption. Our ambulances are also equipped with monitoring and ventilator support to ensure patient safety. WIF Women and Newborn Hospital patients receive priority admissions in WIF Women and Newborn Hospitals.
We, at WIF Women and Newborn Hospital, understand the stress you experience when your loved one may require medical attention in a SICU. Thus, we follow a strict 24 hours-a-day policy, to ensure that your medical needs get met at any time of the day.
