"This is especially true for children with traumatic brain injuries," says Dr. Andrew Kiragu, the Medical Director of HCMC's PICU, where they specialize in the treatment of children with concussions and other traumatic brain injuries. "Natural daylight may also improve outcomes for all kids who are in the intensive care unit."
Critical care physicians like Dr. Kiragu as well as trauma and burn surgeons and other specialty trained staff are onsite at HCMC 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to care for patients in the PICU and the pediatric Burn ICU. Nurses in the PICU and the Burn Unit are specially trained to care for the smallest trauma patients.
The new PICU is now located directly across the hallway from the adult intensive care units, which may not seem very relevant, but if other family members have been critically injured it can make a big difference.
"As a Level I Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center, we unfortunately see many instances where multiple family members are involved in car crashes, fires or other incidents," explains Dr. Kiragu. "Thankfully, we've always been able to keep families together at our Trauma Center, and now injured children can be even closer to other family members receiving intensive care.
"We understand that an intensive care unit is the last place any parent would want to see their child," Dr. Kiragu adds.
