High Dependency Unit
When certain patients need a high-level of care which cannot be provided in general wards but do not require admission to an ICU, they are admitted to our High-dependency Units in UMRI. It is appropriate for patients who have had major surgery and for those with single-organ failure, hence they may include elderly patients, infants, patients with more than 30% burns, etc. Several check-ups are done every day to decipher the improvement or deterioration of their health.
Patients here are cared for more than the general wards to minimize their risk of going to ICUs and for helping them to regain their health quickly. They are monitored regularly and their health check-ups are more frequent as we aim to provide the best HDU near Airport in Kolkata for more detailed observations or intervention including support for a single failing organ system or postoperative care and those ‘stepping down’ from higher levels of care.
