For critically ill patients, a quick response can make the difference between life and death. Colquitt Regional Medical Center has designed our intensive care/cardiac care unit to make it as easy as possible for nurses to observe and reach each patient. We use an interdisciplinary team approach to patient care. This team includes respiratory therapists, physical therapists, dieticians, wound care nurses, and special procedure nurses. We also have a team of board-certified Critical Care physicians who work with the ICU to provide quick assessment and treatment of patients with life-threatening injuries and conditions.
A patient may also receive treatment from a variety of physicians while in the ICU. Some of the specialists you may see include:
We’ve equipped the unit with state-of-the-art hemodynamic monitoring devices that alert us when life-threatening changes occur.
The Intensive Care Unit at Colquitt Regional consists of 10 private rooms designed to be patient and family friendly. All rooms include a private restroom, a desk area, and a convertible sofa to accommodate family members who wish to spend the night with their loved one.
Visitors are allowed in the ICU between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. each day. All visitors must be over 12 years of age to visit ICU patients. A waiting room for ICU visitors is located right outside of the ICU unit on the 2nd floor.
