Mount Elizabeth Intensive Care Unit

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

  • Overview

    Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a specialised facility dedicated to patients who require intensive monitoring, nursing care and complex respiratory support. The ICU is staffed 24 hours a day by board-certified specialists and seasoned critical care nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, who are committed to providing quality clinical care.

    This facility leverages advanced technology to ensure patient safety. Patients’ vital signs are transmitted to a central nursing station manned around the clock by our qualified nurses, so the ICU team is able to respond to any changes in time.

    With a ceiling-mounted service unit to deliver critical power and house medical equipment, the beds in our ICU are no longer tethered to the wall. This allows the beds to be rotated and positioned freely to the most optimum environment. The ICU is also positioned in close proximity to the operating theatres so patients can receive emergency treatment as quickly as possible.

  • High Dependency Unit (HDU)

    The High Dependency Unit (HDU), or step-down, progressive and intermediate care unit, is for patients who require a higher level of observation, treatment and nursing care than that offered in a general ward but do not require admission into intensive care.

    For those moved into the HDU from the intensive care facilities, this move is often seen as a welcome sign of progress as it is means that the patient is improving, gradually establishing more normal eating and sleeping patterns, and is a step closer to going home.

  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

    The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) specialises in the monitoring and care of ill or premature new-born infants. The NICU also admits babies with congenital problems or trauma during delivery and combines sophisticated equipment with trained healthcare professionals to provide specialised care for newborn infants.

    Services include:

    • Neonatal intensive and special care
    • Standby for high-risk deliveries
    • High-risk and birth defect consultations
    • Newborn screening
    • Neonatal neurodevelopmental follow-up of premature newborn infants
    • Specialist outpatient consultation
  • Visiting Information

    • At Mount Elizabeth Hospital, we recognise that visits from friends and loved ones greatly aid the recovery process. However, to ensure that you and other patients have adequate time to rest and recover, we request that our visitor guidelines are strictly adhered to.

      Visitor Guidelines

      • Visiting hours are from 8am to 8pm daily.
      • There should be no more than 2 visitors at any one time. Ward staff will inform you if the patient declines visitors.
      • Please refrain from bringing children under 7 to visit the patient. The ward staff will be able to make an exception if the child is the patient’s child or grandchild.
    • Visiting ICU

      The ICU is a restricted area due to the serious condition of patients warded there. As these patients require ample rest, only 1 visitor is allowed at any one time.
