When do you need critical care?

When a family member needs long term ICU care, a lot of doctors and hospitals advise for such care to be provided at home if possible, in case there are no active interventions to be done. The patient is happier at home and healing can happen without the threat of hospital acquired infections. This is financially easier for the family as well considering such care at home comes at least 30% cheaper than in a hospital.

We have provided this service to a lot of patients with respiratory or neurological disease who take a long time to recover and need adequate device support and specialised care through trained nurses.
