Critically ill patients with organ failure and requiring life support are admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. Our Intensive Care unit caters to a wide spectrum of critically ill patients requiring multidisciplinary care and life support. We also receive referrals from other hospitals in Nagaland.
Some common conditions necessitating admission to the ICU include:
Since critically ill patients are vulnerable to infections and also require continuous nursing care, the family is requested to limit the number of visitors. They are allowed to visit the patient only during the designated visiting hours to ensure continuity of care and maximum benefit to the patient.
The new Intensive Care Unit complex has been built with state-of-the-art facilities following a generous grant from the NEC. The main ICU unit has 13 beds, 3 cabins,1 comfort care room, and a counseling room. The ICU has centralised air conditioning and patients as well as staff benefit from the natural daylight that brightens the ICU.
The comfort care room is a feature that was introduced to enable terminally ill patients to be surrounded by family for emotional support while continuing to receive care from the ICU team.
We are well equipped with 5 mechanical ventilators to provide artificial ventilation for patients whose breathing is not normal.Multiple infusion pumps, volumetric pumps ensure that medications and IV fluids are given safely to patients. Multiparameter touchscreen monitors with centralised monitor provide accurate monitoring. A portable ultrasound machine allows for imaging of critically ill patients and aids diagnosis without the risks of patient transfer. A defibrillator is available for resuscitation. Hemodialysis can be performed in the ICU premises.
We have a team of dedicated, skilled nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, dieticians, dialysis technicians, counselors, and hospital assistants to ensure that patients benefit from multidisciplinary team involvement.
Each nurse caters to a maximum of only 3 patients to ensure continuous individual quality attention is given to the critically ill patients. If patients are on a mechanical ventilator the nurse-to-patient ratio is maintained at 1:1.
