ICU) is an important medical facility for treating critically ill patients, and is especially essential during emergencies. On the other hand, the number of ICU beds in Japan is 5.6 per 100,000 people *1, compared to around 30 beds in Germany and around 12 beds in Italy, compared to the average of 12 beds in OECD member countries for which data is available. and will be at a low level. In addition to the shortage of ICUs in public hospitals, the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the shortage of manpower (intensive care doctors and nurses assigned to ICUs) to provide adequate medical care to critically ill patients*2.
Domestic and international papers have shown that having intensive care physicians working exclusively in the ICU improves medical outcomes.
