Chennai: An intensive care unit (ICU) is the most critical area of a hospital, where admission is restricted to prevent any possibility of transmission of infections or entry of harmful microbes. Moreover, too much movement in the area can affect the holistic care and personalized treatment of the patient.
We have to realize that medicine is changing, the expectation of patients are changing all the time; today, a patient is well informed; we need to spend more and more time with patients to communicate to them, answer their queries in a very professional manner. We need to start looking at the international guidelines that are available to make sure that the treatment that we offer is in keeping with what the international standards are. Many of us need to start looking at group practice so that we can further specialize and contribute to improving the patient care by taking advice from other colleagues, by using technologies. So, there is a lot we as technicians need to do to meet the expectations of the patients, which are rightfully increasing.
