Neuro ICU Family Guide (click for details): At UCLA, we understand the needs of family members during critical illness. We have designed an open visitation policy, frequent physician updates, and a transparent policy that empowers families during this difficult time.
Our 24 bed Neurocritical Care Unit is designed to care for very sick patients. We accept transfers from our neighbor hospitals, as well as remote sites. Our transfer call center is manned 24 hours/day and can connect your doctors with critical care doctors to discuss your family member's condition.
