Patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit may include critically ill or injured patients from the emergency room (ER), inpatient ward, or operating room and patients referred from other hospitals. Decisions regarding admission are made by physicians in each field. Patients with suspected STEM or NSTEMI should be referred to the Intensive Care Unit by ER nurses. In the event that all six critical care beds are fully occupied, the corresponding physician or hospital director will evaluate the severity of ICU patients and those with lower illness severity will be discharged to create additional beds for new patients with more severe conditions.
Decisions to discharge patients from the Intensive Care Unit are made by the corresponding physicians. Discharged patients may include those who have recovered from critical illnesses or are ready to be weaned from mechanical ventilation or intubation, deceased patients, patients requesting their own discharge, and referred patients.
