CCOTs are care teams led by a physician who specializes in critical care. The team also includes specially trained nurses and respiratory therapists.
CCOTs bring critical care support beyond the walls of the ICU to high-risk patients on inpatient units. These teams provide a complementary and effective patient safety and critical care resource to LHSC.
CCOTs work in partnership with teams on inpatient wards and with critical care to identify, assess and respond to the needs of seriously ill patients, while also providing consultations and participating in rounds.
