For critically ill people and their families, the critical care environment in the Emergency Department or Intensive Care Unit is often foreign and confronting. Together with the illness or injury which led to admission, treatment, medication, hospital routines may affect homeostatic body function and control. These external stressors have the potential to affect the person physically, psychologically, socially, culturally and spiritually in a way which may ultimately compromise healing and recovery. It is imperative that while caring for people who are critically ill, that nurses consider the impact of the environment on the person’s illness, healing, and recovery. An awareness of how the environment affects a person who is critically ill, allows nurses to initiate and incorporate nursing care to support the person through their illness by addressing environmental stressors while undergoing treatment in the critical care setting.
