The Cabrini Hospital Intensive Care Unit (ICU), admits more than 1400 patients annually. The ICU is affiliated with Monash University and provides care for a wide variety of medical and surgical conditions.
Cabrini ICU is a level 3 unit and is accredited with the College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM) for 12 months of advanced training. The unit has a long standing expertise in the management of patients after open heart surgery and also manages a wide mix of patients after other complex surgery. The number of medical patients is also on the rise with an increasingly busy emergency department.
Each day the ICU is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team including a senior intensivist, ICU registrar, Medical Emergency Team liaison registrar, nurse manager, bedside nurses, pharmacist, dietician and physiotherapist. We have strong emphasis on team work, compassionate care and quality bedside teaching. We regularly conduct patient and registrar satisfaction surveys to help us in improving our service and training.
This ICU is equipped with modern ventilators, dialysis machines, and other equipment required for the support of patients with life threatening illnesses. We also run a Medical Emergency Team to serve the needs of patients who become suddenly unwell outside of intensive care.
