Mercy Gilbert's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) offers specialized care and monitoring for our patients with any potentially life-threatening medical, surgical or cardiac condition requiring continuous monitoring, or a more intensive nurse-to-patient ratio. Our compassionate and highly trained ICU team is made up of registered nurses, patient care technicians, monitor technicians, hospitalists, intensivists and other healthcare providers specializing in critical care. They are committed to helping their patients heal, body, mind and spirit.
We understand having a loved one in the ICU can be very stressful and overwhelming. When you visit, here are a few things you and your family can do to help:
Patients in the ICU often have compromised immune systems. Although it may be difficult, if you are not feeling well it is important to postpone visiting. Everyone who enters the ICU must wash their hands. The ICU is open from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. each day our doctors and nurses conduct patient care meetings and we ask you stay inside of your loved ones room during this time for privacy reasons. For your loved one's comfort, we suggest only two visitors at a time in the room. Limitations may exist for children under the age of 14. Please check with your loved one's nurse for special considerations. For more information, please call 480.728.7348.
