PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO ICU CARE
“ICU Liberation” is an approach to ICU care designed to improve communication, teamwork, family involvement, and patient outcomes. It’s the approach we take in the Wooster Community Hospital ICU.
This personalized approach focuses on:
- Regular assessment and treatment of pain, including medication reviews for improved pain control and the management of delirium.
- Early mobility and exercise to help prevent muscle loss due to immobilization while in the ICU, and to help improve alertness and orientation to aid in recovery. Rather than keeping patients sedated and sedentary during their ICU stay, patients are helped to walk with a ventilator. This improves healing time and reduces the risk of complications that are typical in a traditional ICU environment.
- Family engagement and empowerment, especially in daily rounds by health care providers (doctors, nurses, rehabilitation staff, and more) for direct communication, with questions answered on the spot.
