What is a
It is an Intensive Care Unit that receives patients from various hospitals when they are severely ill, manages them, and sends them back to the referring facility once stable and out of the ICU.
Why do you need a
There are several good hospitals and doctors scattered all over Nigeria. Unfortunately, these hospitals are not equipped with ICU facilities because it is capital intensive to setup and provide trained staff to run it, even when available. Many hospitals may not have the patient load to support the investment. A Destination ICU offers hospitals the opportunity to provide high-level care for their patients while maintaining control of the care in an Intensive Care Unit. Patients are managed in a Destination ICU and once discharged, are sent back to their referral doctor. The doctor then provides adequate care for the patient and does not lose the patient to the place where the ICU is domiciled.
What happens to my patients once they are discharged from the ICU?
Once discharged, you may choose to allow us to continue to care for your patient in the High Dependency Unit (Step-Down ICU) or request transfer to your hospital for further care.
