Brevard County Critical Care ICU
Intensive Care from Parrish Medical Center
At Parrish Medical Center, patients in need of urgent, closely-monitored,
life-saving care are admitted to our Critical Care ICU (Intensive Care
Unit). Our ICU is equipped with the latest medical technologies and staffed
by vigilant, specially-trained doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals
who are ready to respond to possible emergencies that endanger the health
of our patients.
When Your Loved One Is in Intensive Care
Patients can come to our intensive care unit several different ways. They
can be admitted via our emergency room for long-term treatment. They can
be admitted from surgery or they can be admitted from virtually any other
department of the hospital if doctors believe that the patient's health
is in jeopardy.
If your loved one has been admitted to our Critical Care ICU, you likely
have different concerns about their care, prognosis, and available amenities.
Our nurses and doctors are there to answer your questions, instill education,
and maintain open communication between your family and our staff during
this stressful time.
Who Is Taking Care of ICU Patients?
Because our ICU is caring for patients in the greatest need of medical
intervention and care, it is a hub for many medical professionals to meet,
collaborate, and make rounds with patients. This can be overwhelming for
both patients and their families, but the busyness of the ICU is indicative
of the resources and attention the patients in this department are receiving.
Staff in our Critical Care ICU can include:
- Intensiveness (critical care physicians)
- Critical care nurses
- Respiratory therapists
- Physical therapists
- Social workers
