M doing my 3rd year which includes critical nursing this semester.
I was looking for difference between High dependency and critical care unit.
For High dependency I found out that it is the area of care where patient requiring long term care are admitted or cared for .eg cancer ,palliative
CCU is a critical care unit which cares for the patient who are critically ill and there is danger to their life.
Adverse events in high dependency unit -
Adverse events in CCU include
Ventilator associated pneumonia
I know, its a silly question but just wanted to know if there is difference between HDU and CCUs
Because i Think both are taking care of critical patients.Pls correct me
And Could anyone help me with looking at more adverse events in high dependency ward
And any useful site I can visit to learn more about high dependency unit
