There are patients who are no longer in the critical phase of their illness, but still need ICU facilities and critical care treatment. There are patients who are at the end stage of their lives and could still benefit from being sent home, where ICU services can still be provided along with home care nursing. Long stays in the ICU potentially increases the risk of acquiring nosocomial infections, which could delay the start of rehabilitative treatments..
So, essentially, people who might need critical care are those who are recovering after a prolonged stay in the ICU, neurological patients, patients with spinal/brain injuries and/or multiple trauma, post-transplant patients, end-of-life care patients, cancer patients, patients with end-stage respiratory disorders, patients on Ventilator and/or Tracheostomy – to name a few.
