Ruby Hall Clinic’s critical care unit offers advanced and compassionate health care to critically ill patients with a professional approach. We have 8 beds in our critical care unit with advanced features like central monitoring and isolation bed. It has back-up centralized monitoring with the Ruby Hall Clinic Sassoon road. Our performance in patient care is comparable to international standards in terms of survival, nosocomial infections, and patient satisfaction. Our state-of-the-art Multidisciplinary Intensive Care Units have a separate cubicle for each patient providing maximum patient comfort and privacy.
Our Founder Director Dr. Prachee Sathe trained in the UK on International Fellowship from Royal College of Physicians; Edinburgh for comprehensive training in critical care medicine started this department in 1991 with an idea to develop a world-class ICU setup and has treated more than 15000 critically ill patients. Under her able guidance, a team of expert intensivists works round the clock to provide the best possible care to critically ill patients. Our ICUs have a 2:1 patient: nurse ratio with the more serious patients receiving the attention of a dedicated nurse. A dedicated pharmacist, ICU coordinator and adequate support staff are working for these ICUs. We have a Medical Emergency Team attending to emergency calls from all sections of the hospital 24 hours a day with minimal response time.
Equipment and Instruments
We have the latest multipara monitors for invasive and non-invasive monitoring with a central monitor. All the beds are fully equipped with latest monitors, ventilator support, syringe pumps for minute monitoring of the small quantity of drugs, etc.
These ICUs are capable of treating patients with complex medical problems like septicemia, multi-organ failure (renal failure, respiratory failure, cardiac failure, etc.), various types of poisoning, high-risk/complicated surgical patients, road traffic accidents, post renal and liver transplant patients, diabetic complications, etc.
We believe in delivering care that can make a positive difference in our patients’ lives. Therefore, we follow stringent protocols to provide the desired patient outcome under constant peer review. We have a high number of interdepartmental consultations for optimal patient management. We also have an on-going ICU audit system with analysis of predicted and actual outcome analysis using severity of illness scoring systems (APACHE II and SAPS II), monitoring of protocol adherence in ICU procedures, hygiene, infection control, etc. There are on-going internal training programs for the medical and nursing staff.
