The Intensive Care Unit of Saint Joseph´s Catholic Hospital is a multi-purpose area designed to provide intensive comprehensive care 24/7 to seriously ill patients or those with a high risk of developing complications, who require continuous monitoring, vigilance and specialized medical treatment. This is why the Unit has specifically trained staff with the support of the rest of the medical and surgical specialities at the Hospital.
The equipment required for optimum vigilance of patients include monitors, defibrilators, electrocardiography (EKG) machine, suction machines etc. They are controlled at all times by the Unit staff.
Head of Unit is Dr. Mahmoud, coordinated with the rest of Saint Joseph´s Catholic Hospital´s professionals and the remote support of the Intensive Care specialists at the University Hospital of Alava, Spain.
In coincidence with the opening of the new Intensive Care Unit, in June 2012, thanks to a project financially supported by the Saint John of God´s Hospital of Santurce, Spain, and the collaboration of the University Hospital of Alava, Dr. Javier Maynar and ICU nurse Nagore Martínez de Aguirre gave a training course on Intensive Care Medicine for doctors and nurses from our center and others, as well as for teachers and students from the A. M. Dogliotti School of Medicine (Ubiversity of Liberia) and Mother Patern College of Health Sciences.
