How our Brain and Spine Centre Operates
The Brain and Spine Centre comprises the neuro-catheterisation lab, the neuro-ward, ICU and operating theatre.
The Neuro-Ward, ICU and theatre function together to provide the following services:
- Pre- admission evaluation unit where the evaluation & clerking of patients prior to their admission into the wards occurs.
- Neuro-wards are responsible for managing the pre-operation, post-operation and rehabilitative care of all neuro-related patients. The neuro-operating theatre receives patients who have been prepared for surgery. After the surgery is performed and the patient has recovered, they are transferred to either the ICU or the ward.
- Neuro- ICU is responsible for receiving and caring for patients from the operating theater (post-operation), and the accident and emergency department or ward. Once stable, the patients are transferred to the ward.
- Neuro Surgery for all Brain, spinal and nerve problems
