The Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) cares for critically ill patients in an intensive care environment, with nursing staff specially trained in the administration of Interleukin 2 therapy.
One registered nurse (RN) is assigned to take care of a maximum of two patients. Our Medical Intensive Care Unit patient rooms are designed to allow nurses constant visual contact with their patients. As a safety precaution, the Medical Intensive Care Unit is a closed unit and requires permission to enter by intercom.
Each private-patient-care room contains the most advanced intensive-care equipment available, including cardiac-monitoring and emergency-response equipment. The curtains in the room will usually be drawn to keep your room more private.
A brief tour is available on weekdays for patients and visitors interested in walking through the unit and meeting the staff before arrival. To arrange for a tour, please call the nurse manager at 310-267-9529.
Visitors are allowed to stay overnight. However, since the rooms are designed for patients only, no fold-out beds are available and a public bathroom is located outside the unit.
During the hours of 8:00 am to 9:00 am and 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm, visitors may be asked to leave the room, to allow the new nurse on duty to perform an initial assessment and connect with the patient.
