With the return from lockdown, the number of cases needing critical care
may not be determinable today itself. The need is to remedially plan for a Principle of Support (Protraction) that
permits healthcare providers to enable their ICU(s) and related units for problem solving when today’s “government recommended or dedicated” units cannot treat all cases.
The first step is to question whether a critical care unit is high-intensity (that is high occupancy, high dependency and critical outcome) or whether it is low intensity (not so high dependency and not so intense outcome). For remedial planning, we are interested in knowing the high occupancy and high dependency nature of ICU(s) as per the specialty of their connected healthcare providers. The next step is to reinstate that a healthcare organization’s “medical knowledge, scientific knowledge, technological advancement, systems planning, engineering and facility management; model for continual operations, cost of ownership & flexible profit making; social responsibility and philosophy for critical healthcare and wellness” all play an important role in designing quality assurance programmes for these units. To bridge the gaps that exist in different regions, this reckoner states that there should be a SMART prioritization with focus on 2020 sensitizations (for remedial planning), common benchmarks, key performance parameters, quality indicators, operational parameters, continual programmes and hotspot control of all critical care units.
