Our ten-bed intensive care unit has seven rooms, which are allocated on the basis of clinical need, for example critically-ill patients or those requiring isolation. As a result, single rooms are not always available for patients in the intensive care unit.
A multidisciplinary team
Our highly-specialized, multidisciplinary team is invaluable to the smooth and efficient running of the intensive care unit. The team is made up of:
- Nursing assistants
- Cleaning and maintenance staff
- Administrative and clerical staff
Everyone has an important supporting role to play in delivering the highest standard of care and treatment. A doctor is always on duty within the unit and each nurse looks after a maximum of two patients.

Expertise, compassion and sensitivity lie at the heart of our care in the intensive care unit. As relatives or friends, you are an integral part of the multidisciplinary team who surround and support the patient. In fact, being present and establishing dialogue with the care team play a key role in your loved one’s care and treatment. We are always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
