The Mizell Memorial Hospital Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a five (5) bed unit that provides care for those patients who require critical care and constant monitoring.
Critical respiratory, hypertensive, neurological and trauma-related life events are treated in the ICU, as well as postoperative care for complicated surgical recoveries.
Visitation guidelines for patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU):
The ICU door will remain locked at all times.
As visitors arrive to the ICU, they will use the phone in the ICU waiting room to notify staff that they are present to visit with the patient.
An ICU patient may have two (2) visitors present in their room at the same time.
If the patient has more than two (2) visitors, the other visitors may wait in the ICU waiting room until they can swap with another visitor.
If ICU Waiting becomes overcrowded, some individuals may be asked to wait in another area. (Examples: front lobby, ER Waiting, etc.)
To promote a restful night for the patient, only one (1) visitor may stay during the night after 9:00 PM
In extenuating circumstances, visitation hours may be modified at the discretion of administration or the charge nurse.
There will be no visitation for Covid-19 Positive patients, except in extremely extenuating circumstances.
Children under the age of twelve (12) may visit at the discretion of administration or the ICU charge nurse.
