The Department of Intensive Care Medicine at Sengkang General Hospital combines and integrates different conventional sub-specialty ICUs (medical, surgical, and neurosurgical) into one multi-disciplinary ICU. We provide comprehensive care round the clock to critically ill patients using a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach, supported by latest medical technology. We have a dedicated team of critical care professionals, comprising intensivists, intensive care nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, dietitians and medical social workers. Our ICU nurses have received advanced training in critical care nursing, and many have obtained additional degrees and certifications as nurse practitioners and nurse educators.
As part of our commitment to teaching and training, we provide our trainee doctors/ medical students, residents, fellows and Intensive Care Medicine Advanced Specialty Trainees with rigorous training in the fundamentals of managing critically ill patients. This is achieved through a broad-based curriculum model comprising didactics, journal clubs, morbidity mortality rounds, procedural skills based training and training in the use of point-of-care ultrasound. We conduct regular inter-professional simulation sessions to enhance inter-disciplinary teamwork and crisis resource management skills. We also encourage participation in clinical research and quality improvement initiatives. Our nurses receive extensive critical care education through a 12-week ICU orientation program, as well as other training opportunities to ensure delivery of the highest level of care to our patients.
Standards of care established by the Department of Intensive Care Medicine help ensure that patients receive optimum, coordinated care regardless of which ICU they are assigned to. Our commitment to excellence means that we work to ensure that patients receive the best care during their time at the ICU and post recovery. Our patients benefit from shared expertise, leading research, and our commitment to quality and excellence.
