Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

Specialized Staff Delivers Intensive Nursing and Medical Care to Patients in Critical Condition

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at UH Bedford Medical Center, a Campus of UH Regional Hospitals features a team of highly trained specialists and support staff who provide expert critical care. Patients often require this specialized type of monitoring and treatment because of complications from surgery, infections, accidents, or severe breathing problems.

Our leading-edge facility is staffed by registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and a unit secretary. A designated RN directs and coordinates care for each patient in critical condition. Other staff members may include:

  • Doctors and medical students
  • Physical therapists who assist patients with mobility
  • Respiratory therapists who help patients with breathing and oxygen needs
  • Social workers
  • Dietitians and nutrition services staff
  • Environmental services employees

All patients in our facility are attached to monitoring equipment that records a combination of pulse, heart rhythm, blood pressure and blood oxygen levels. Catheters, ventilators, intravenous (IV) tubes, feeding tubes, and other equipment may also be used. To help stabilize a patient’s condition and promote healing, our intensive care specialists use the most advanced therapeutic techniques and services available.
