Critical Care Adolescent Patient Pathway

exp date isn't null, but text field is


During periods of peak activity when Paediatric Intensive Care is operating at, or near, maximum bed occupancy it may be appropriate for adolescent patients requiring critical care to be looked after in the co-located Adult Critical Care Unit in the QEUH. This patient pathway has been designed to improve the safety and quality of the patient journey for those adolescents identified as suitable for, and agreed for transfer between PICU and Adult ICU. It is also to facilitate shared learning in adolescent management across critical care areas in the adult and children’s hospital.
