The intensive care unit (ICU) at Northern Louisiana Medical Center provides continuous monitoring and treatment of critically ill patients. Because patients in the ICU require specialized care, visitors should understand that their visit might be interrupted or cut short based on the needs of the patient and our doctors.
We offer 17 private rooms, each of which is visible from the nursing desk. Nurse to patient ratio at Northern Louisiana Medical Center is 2 to 1 or 3 to 1, depending on the acuity of the patient. All of our intensive care nurses are certified in ACLS and PALS.
