Upon admission of your loved one to the TICU, please identify the patient's spokesperson.
Please take your loved one's belongings home, with the exception of his or her dentures, hearing aids and glasses.
Once your loved one no longer needs intensive care, he or she will be transferred to a general care unit. Your TICU nurse will help make this transition easier for you and your loved one.
Each patient is assigned a nurse case manager who will arrange his or her discharge to a rehabilitation facility or to his or her home. The patient's nurse case manager will contact his or her spokesperson a couple of days after admission to the TICU.
