A hospitalization is often unplanned. Rest assured that should a higher level of medical care be needed while at Surana Group of Hospital, our highly trained medical team with our Critical Care Unit delivers the very best intensive care. When it comes to critical care medicine our Critical Care Unit has better clinical outcomes including shorter length of stay when compared to other critical care units across the city.
A doctor may place a patient in the Critical Care Unit for specialized care and close observation based on the patient's medical need. The team also includes experienced critical care nurses, respiratory therapists, unit-based pharmacists, dietitians, pastoral care, social work services, physical and occupational therapists, and others to meet the critical care needs of patients.
We recognize the need for visitors to spend time with their loved ones in the Critical Care Unit. We ask that family members be in the patient room by 8:30 a.m. Monday - Friday to be a part of the Critical Care Team rounding for an update on the patient's condition and treatment plans. We ask that only two people visit a patient at one time. While there are no set visiting hours, the nurse caring for the patient will set guidelines for rest periods to meet the needs of the patient.
Our Critical Care team has developed an evidence-based program for severe sepsis, an illness caused by severe infection, to reduce the risk and best manage the disease. Preventing ventilator associated pneumonia is a key focus for healthcare improvement - and our efforts at Surana Group of Hospital to have no patients acquire ventilator associated pneumonia has been shared with hospitals across the city.
Equipped with the latest monitoring instruments, the department is all set to take care of any kind of emergencies round-the-clock. The department has changed the emergency medicine scenario in the city. Triage area, equipped with facilities that a world class emergency room has; ICU-ON-WHEELS, mobile unit with a defibrillator, multipara monitor and ventilator, excellent communication facilities backup, etc., are some of the features.

The Critical Care units at Surana Hospital integrate many specialties and diverse technologies, offering the possibility of survival to patients who are acutely and critically ill. They are designed and managed based on the fact that methodical organisation of Critical Care services influences important overall outcome measures such as mortality, length of stay and infection rates. A lot of emphasis is also placed on areas like nurses’ training, standardizing care through clinical pathways and the identification of ethical and economic issues pertaining to Critical Care.
