HumanInsight Setting up a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in a Community/Rural Setting
Pediatr Clin North Am. 2022 Jun;69(3):497-508. doi: 10.1016/j.pcl.2022.01.010.
Community pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) play a crucial role in providing high-quality care to critically ill children in the rural setting. Setting one up requires meticulous planning and allocation of limited resources. The design and layout of PICUs vary widely but need to meet the required minimum standards and follow local and federal policies and regulatory standards. The building block is investing in the education and training of health care providers. Collaboration with tertiary facilities and community organizations helps provide care closer to home. Care coordination necessitates partnering with the families and the community and including telemedicine to increase accessibility.
