The patient ward dedicated to treating critically ill patients at the SMMC is called the ICU.
Our 3-bed Intensive and Coronary Care Unit serves the hospitals most critical patients, providing close observation and individual care around the clock.
Patients are admitted to the ICU when the attending specialist believes that they would benefit from continuous observation, technically skilled support as well as a unique blend of specially trained nurses and sophisticated equipment.
Staff in our small unit strives daily to provide compassionate care to the critically ill patient. The ICU is staffed by Registered Nurses with IC specialization, meeting the standards of Intensive Care Nursing in the Netherlands. The level of nursing care that needs to be provided in the ICU is intense and so is the required special training to operate advanced high tech equipment. Together we strive to provide for the intensive needs of our critical care patients.
