Critical Care Unit
St John of God Hospital Bendigo’s new state of
the art Critical Care Unit (CCU) was opened in 2009. The eight bed
unit is set up for four Intensive Care/High Dependency
patients and four Coronary Care
The CCU team includes:
- consultants of varying specialties
- 24 hour hospital medical officers
- Critical Care trained nursing staff
- a range of allied health personnel
We regret flowers are not allowed in the CCU
due to infection control measures. We ask that you hold off sending
flowers until a patient is moved to another ward, or goes home. For
more information on sending flowers to a patient in our hospital
please see Patient and Visitor information.
The visiting hours for all patients in the Critical Care
11.00am to 1.00pm and 3.00pm to 8pm.
To ensure a speedy recovery there is a strict rest period for
all patients between 1.00pm to 3.00pm. Visitors are asked to
respect this rest time and are welcome to wait in our visitor
waiting room, or visit again later. There are exceptions to the
visiting hours when the patient is critically ill, but as they
improve we will ask you once again to abide by our visiting hours.
Usually we allow only two visitors per patient at a time.
