High dependency Unit

At the Malvazinky Clinic, there are concentrated all necessary services for safe and successful orthopedic surgery, intensive care, rehabilitation, nursing and caregiving care under one roof. This constellation is excellent not only for short-time treatment but also for transitional care after the Intensive Care Unit provided as High Dependency Unit(HDU.) HDUs is a department for people who need more intensive observation, treatment and nursing care than is possible in a general ward but slightly less than that given in intensive care. It is appropriate for patients who have had major surgery and for those with single-organ failure. HDU is specifically equipped and staffed to provide the intermediate level of care that such patients often require after discharge from ICU’s. Patients may be admitted to an HDU bed because they are at risk of requiring intensive care admission, or as a step-down between intensive care and ward-based care. People spend varying lengths of time in HDU, depending on the nature of their illness and the demands on the unit. At the Malvazinky Clinic, they usually spend no more than 90 days. This time is necessary for the improvement of the patient health status or management long-term care for unconscious patients after brain injuries.

By looking after the patient on the HDU with greater numbers of specially trained nurses and doctors we aim to:

  • Reduce the risk of post-operative and post-trauma complications occurring
  • Recognise complications early, and rapidly begin investigating and treating complications if they do occur
  • Provide expert help with the management of pain
  • Provide rapid access to specialist services such as physiotherapy, dieticians, and OT.
