What is an ICU nurse? ICU nurses or critical care nurses are highly specialized and trained healthcare personnel who provide nursing care to patients with life-threatening illnesses or conditions. They provide specialized experience, knowledge, and skills that patients need to survive or de-escalate care. ICU nurses are trained to make split-second decisions and act quickly when a patient’s status changes. Their primary work environment in the hospital is in specialized care units. Typically, ICU patients need a high level of care, and most of them are admitted to the hospital.
Critical care nurses need technical skill and knowledge to effectively use and interpret bedside monitors. A further common technical resource is the clinical information system (CIS), which can record and process large amounts of data, such as: Patient physiological observations; Care or interventions delivered; Medication plans. The FICM (2019) highlights how a CIS can not only improve efficiency, but also reduce errors and improve compliance with standards or guidelines. Holistic patient-centred care – as outlined by Jasemi et al (2017) – is vital in critical care, with effective psychosocial care, and cultural, spiritual and family care being of particular significance. Immediately on admission to a critical care setting, patients are subjected to an onslaught of physical and psychosocial stressors. See even more information at https://soundcloud.com/tenekishan.
