Medical safety in the Medicover Hospital is our top priority.
We ensure our patients’ safety of in the operating theatres, postoperative recovery rooms and intensive care units. Patients requiring intensive monitoring and care stay in the Intensive Care Unit, the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit or the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is one of the key hospital departments which provides intensive care – treatment and monitoring – for patients in a critically ill or unstable condition. A person in the ICU needs constant close monitoring and support in order to maintain normal bodily functions. The 4-bed unit has been designed in such a way so as to ensure the highest level of patient safety and the central nursing station enables individual, 24-hour observation and monitoring of the patient’s condition. Our ICU team consists of anaesthesiologists, intensive care specialists and highly-skilled, trained nurses.
Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU)
The Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), with its state-of-the-art equipment, specializes in the care of patients with acute cardiac conditions or after invasive cardiac procedures. Patients in the CICU need intensive care due to their heart conditions. Our 4-bed CICU has the most advanced, specialist equipment intended for a comprehensive monitoring of the patient’s condition. By each bed, there is a set of modern infusion pumps, synchronised with the central computer, which monitors drug dosage and the continuity of intravenous drug therapy. Patients staying in the CICU are provided 24-hour, professional care by a team of highly-skilled doctors and nurses.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is intended for clinically unstable and seriously ill newborns requiring constant neonatal care, respiratory assistance and other medical interventions. Our NICU provides 24-hour access to doctors and nurses as well as diagnostic tests (laboratory tests and medical imaging).
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit includes:
- 8-bed observation unit;
- 3-bed intensive care unit for prematurely born infants or newborns requiring specialist care. The unit has the state-of-the-art equipment which enables ventilation and monitoring of newborns as well as the best incubators (4) and specialist equipment to move newborn babies between hospitals, if necessary. Each baby is assigned one neonatal nurse.
- 4-bed infant close monitoring unit – for infants requiring specialist care with monitoring and/or supervision. It provides specialist equipment enabling phototherapy and feeding premature infants using the Kangaroo method, one of the modern care techniques aimed at strengthening close bonds between mother and child and ensuring the most convenient atmosphere for feeding.
