Notes to visitors
Critical Care Unit
Our Critical Care Unit (CCU) is a highly specialised facility dedicated to patients who require intensive monitoring, nursing care and complex respiratory support. The CCU is staffed 24 hours a day by specialists, critical care nurses and physician assistants, who are committed to providing the highest level of clinical care.
This facility utilises advanced technology to ensure patient safety. Patients’ vital signs are transmitted to a central nursing station monitored by our qualified nurses, so the CCU team is able to respond to any changes swiftly and efficiently. With a ceiling-mounted service unit to deliver critical power and house medical equipment, the beds in our CCU are no longer tethered to the wall. This offers our staff unique and enhanced mobility, allowing the beds to be rotated and positioned freely to the most optimum environment. The CCU is also positioned in close proximity to the operating theatres so patients can receive emergency treatment in the shortest possible time.
High Dependency Unit (HDU)
The High Dependency Unit (HDU), or progressive and intermediate care unit, is a ward for patients who require a higher level of observation, treatment and nursing care than that offered in a general ward but do not require admission into intensive care. Patients are often managed here after major surgery.
To ensure that patients have adequate time to rest and recover, we request that our visitor guidelines are strictly adhered to:
- Visiting hours are from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily.
- There should be no more than two visitors at any one time.
- Children below 12 years of age are advised not to enter.
