The Site’s mission The Site is primarily intended for patients admitted to intensive care and their relatives, in order to provide them with generic information on intensive care and specific information on the department to which they have been admitted, insofar as the department has provided One O One with such information.

It is for information purposes only, and One O One accepts no liability for it.
