The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Bluewater Health is a state-of-the-art critical care unit that provides medical care to all critically-ill patients. The ICU takes care of all medical and surgical patients at the hospital who require life-sustaining measures or need vigilant medical attention and specialized monitoring and treatment.
Critically-ill patients admitted to the ICU are cared for by a multidisciplinary health team involving a critical care-certified physician (intensivist), nurses, respiratory therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, physiotherapists, social workers and a variety of allied health professionals to ensure optimal medical care and best patient outcomes. A variety of support systems for family members is also in place.
The main mission of the ICU is to provide the best possible care for our critically-ill patients and their families. The goal is to reduce the need to send local patients out of town to receive such care, by providing the best possible medical care closer to home. The ICU at Bluewater Health is also part of the province-wide Critical Care Network and admits critically-ill patients from across Ontario.
Family members are welcome and encouraged to visit their loved ones in the ICU and are updated regularly by the medical team regarding the patient's medical condition.
