Intesive Care Unit
The Intensive Care Unit was opened in 2005. It is a 5-bed unit (including one isolation bed) staffed by three critical care trained nurses on each shift, thereby enabling very sick patients to have almost one-to-one care.
Donated equipment allows for constant cardiorespiratory monitoring and all patients can have assisted ventilation via respirators. Many patients have survived who otherwise would have died prior to the Unit’s development.
