Intensive Care Unit

Our Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation's Intensive Care Unit (CHCC-ICU) is a
general critical care unit which caters primarily to acutely-ill individuals of all ages
across the lifespan. Our ICU has four (4) fully-equipped and functional rooms that can
respond to a host of patients experiencing acute biologic crisis. On occasions where
there exists an overflow of patients for admission under intensive care, the adjacent
rooms in the Medical Ward is then converted to ICU extension rooms.

CHCC-ICU has the capacity to perform invasive and non-invasive hemodynamic 
monitoring. It specifically handles all patients suffering from life-threatening conditions
such as myocardial infaction, cerebrovascular accidents, shock, respiratory failure, and
diabetic and renal emergencies. The ICU also responds to any cardiopulmonary
emergencies within the hospital.

Invasive procedures such as esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy, vascular catheter, arterial line and central line insertions are routinely done in the unit. Patients requiringlife-support measures such as mechanical ventilation, external cardiac pacing, vasopressor and anti-coagulation therapy are all managed in the ICU.

Currently staffed with eleven (11) full-time Registered Nurses including the Nurse Supervisor in collaboration with the medical providers from the different departments, ICU prides itself with a team of competent, committed and dynamic individuals backed with years of clinical practice. All staff are BLS, ACLS, PALS, and NRP certified by the American Heart Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
