Mount Sinai Queens Intensive Care Unit
At the Mount Sinai Queens Intensive Care Unit (ICU), we care for adult patients with severe or life-threatening illnesses and injuries. We also treat patients coming out of complex surgeries, such as bariatric procedures, open-abdominal wounds, vascular emergencies, cardiac angioplasties, and neurologic emergencies. The ICU team works with other experts in the hospital, including palliative care, social work, chaplaincy, physical therapists, speech therapists, and nutritionists, to provide the best possible care. The ICU is a closed unit consisting of eight beds.
The ICU team is staffed full time by intensivists, physician assistants, and nursing staff. Our nurses have specialty training in intensive care and anesthesiology. Each member of the ICU team holds certification in basic and advanced life support and emergency neurological life support.
In addition to the ICU staff, we have a variety of experts available for our patients and their families. Translation services are available. We focus on patient-centered care with emphasis on integrating family for decision making and providing counseling services to loved ones.
The ICU team runs a number of services for the entire hospital. These include the Rapid Response Team and Difficult Airway Response Team. We also address stroke codes, cardiac arrests, and sterile bedside procedures such as central venous catheters for the whole hospital.
