​​The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a specialized section of The Cuban Hospital that provides comprehensive and continuous care for patients who are critically ill or in an unstable condition. The unit manages critically ill patients admitted under various specialties; like medical, surgical, obstetrics and gynecology and cardiology; and is actively involved in trauma calls in the hospital.
Healthcare professionals who work in the ICU provide around-the-clock intensive monitoring and treatment of patients seven days a week. Services for unstable to critically ill patients are determined by guidelines created for staff to ensure that the criteria for admission and discharge to the ICU are clear.
Our facilities are state-of-the-art with common, private and isolation beds. We provide specialized monitoring equipment and constant access to highly trained nurses with a high degree of medical expertise. These nurses have an area-wide standard for excellence in critical care and are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life support (ACLS) and Immediate Life Support (ILS). The ICU has an in-house 24 hour specialist who responds to all emergency calls in the hospital. The department attends to approximately 50 patients per month.
Visiting arrangements must be agreed with the doctor or senior nurse in charge. Please check section here for details about visiting.
