The HDU (High Dependency Unit)
This is a 16-bed unit where high care is given to acutely ill and post operative patients. It is manned by nurses who are experienced in acute health delivery. Patients are only transferred to a general ward when deemed out of acute danger. Multi parameter monitors are utilized for constant monitoring. The nurse – patient ratio is 1: 4 or 1:3 depending on gravity of illness of the patients being attended to.
