Welcome to Soldiers' / Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

The Intensive Care Unit is an eight-bed unit, providing continuous monitoring and close observation of critically ill patients presenting with medical, surgical, and renal clinical problems.

 

Many of the problems treated in the ICU include cardiac (heart), respiratory (lung), gastrointestinal (stomach and bowel), renal (kidney), shock, severe bleeding, severe infection, acute dialysis, drug overdose, complicated surgery, motor vehicle accident, or other severe injuries.

 

The ICU staff are highly skilled and trained in advanced life support treatments and procedures. The team consists of doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists, lab and x-ray technicians, dietitians, social workers, pharmacists, and pastoral services. This team combines their efforts to provide expert quality critical care for patients and their loved ones.

OSMH draws from it's foundation of being a Nursing School, and continues this tradition by providing clinical placement opportunities for all health care professions, such as nursing, paramedic and respiratory therapy. The ICU takes pride in supporting the New Grad Initiative, an initiative of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care aimed at ensuring that every new nursing graduate (RN and RPN) who wishes to work full time in Ontario will have that opportunity.
