Ward’s features

The Critical Care ward is located on the ground floor of the Pavilion Morgagni near the Surgery Department. Anaesthesiology service is mainly provided in the Morgagni Surgery Department (Pavilion Morgagni – 1st floor) and also in the Vallisneri Surgery Department. In the Morgagni Surgery Department there is a 6-bed recovery room (four beds with ventilation assistance); it was built in 2007 for the care of the postoperative patients, 35% of the patients operated over the year access to the recovery room.

Useful information about hospitalization

Patients are hospitalized only in case of urgency/emergency. Only doctors responsible for resuscitation do hospitalize patients from Casualty or from other Units.
We do restrict visiting hours so that doctors and nurses can carry out treatment:
-Visiting hours: from 3.30 pm to 7.30 pm, after doctors and nurses have examined patients. In exceptional circumstances, visiting hours can be extended only with the approval of doctors and nurses.


Patients are discharged from the Critical Care Unit only in exceptional circumstances. Normally, patients are transferred to other units together with their clinical documents (a copy of the medical records, latest medical report, therapeutic scheme) or to other health centres.

Organ donation “una scelta consapevole” (a mindful choice)

The doctors and nurses of this unit are actively involved in the information campaign about organ donation called “una scelta consapevole” (a mindful choice). They provide citizens with all the useful information at 0543 735001/735002.
