ICU layout

The intensive care unit should be easily accessible by departments from which patients are admitted and close to departments which share engineering services. It is desirable that critically ill patients are separated from those requiring coronary care or high dependency care where a quieter environment is often needed. It is possible to provide intensive care and high dependency care in the same unit so long as patients can be separated within the unit. However, the differing requirements of these patients may limit such flexibility. The floor sizes given below represent a minimum guide.
