Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Intensive care unit

The intensive care unit at Hôpital de La Tour is dedicated to providing around-the-clock care and monitoring for patients who are critically ill as a result of extensive injury, major surgery or a life-threatening medical condition. Our specialist team manages the admissions process for patients to ensure they receive highly-specialized 24/7 care.

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:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • 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.

Meet key members of the team

Lead nurses:

  • Marcel Fraboschi, charge nurse
  • Isabelle Delunsch, deputy charge nurse
  • Patricia Carlig, training coordinator

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.
