Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides critical care to patients who are seriously ill or with life threatening injuries. We offer specialist intensive care services for a wide range of critically ill adult patients. Our priority is to provide the best care for our patients.
The ICU team includes doctors, nurses, therapists and technicians who have extensive training in intensive care. During your relative’s treatment, you can expect to meet them and other important members of our team of healthcare professionals.
What to expect
Having a family member or friend who is seriously ill in ICU can be an overwhelming experience. We want you to feel confident in the care we provide to your loved one and understand what to expect during and after a stay in ICU. We will support you every step of the way during this stressful time.
Inter hospital transfers
There may be times when your loved one needs to be transfered to another ICU for treatment that Redcliffe Hospital cannot provide. You will be notified if this is to occur and advised of the expected transfer time. A nurse, and usually a doctor, will escort the patient in the ambulance. Family members cannot travel with their loved one in the ambulance.
Education and training
We are proud to have a long tradition of educating and training the next generation of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals in Queensland. Contact us or visit our careers page for more information.
