B5 Intensive Care Unit

B5ICU is a 10-bed intensive care unit (ICU) for orthopedics, plastics, neurosurgery and trauma patients. Also inside is NICU — three neurosurgical short stay beds.

About the care team

Each week one critical care specialist doctor will be assigned to guide your family member's medical care in B5ICU. If you are a neurosurgical short-stay patient you will be seen by the neurosurgery doctor.

Each day the B5ICU interdisciplinary team caring for your loved one spends time at the bedside discussing their progress in addition to assessing and revising the plan of care.

Please let us know if you wish to speak with the doctor regarding the plan of care. As your loved one's condition changes, an alternate level of care will be discussed.

Our nurses are highly skilled to look after the complex needs of you and your family member. We expect that you may have many questions during your loved one's stay in the intensive care unit. Please discuss your questions with your nurse or the clinical care team leader.

Visiting information

We ask that you avoid visiting the unit between 7:15 a.m. and 8 a.m., and 7:15 p.m. and 8 p.m. Please call the unit from the waiting room before entering each time. If there is no volunteer present, please use the phone provided. We ask that you keep bedside visitors to two at a time.


If you have additional concerns that cannot be addressed by the bedside nurse, please ask to speak to the nurse in charge, the clinical care leader or the patient care manager.
