The healing care environment is a comfortable, beautiful and peaceful environment of care, emotionally and spiritually.

Noise, lighting, ventilation, and temperature control in the healing environment are the most basic initiatives to ensure patient safety and comfort. Intensive care units are areas where sleeping due to light and noise is almost impossible. In patients in intensive care units that are noisy and over-illuminated, an increase in pulse and breathing numbers, sleep and hearing impairment causes a fall in oxygen saturation. According to the standards set by the World Health Organization, in intensive care units; the sound level should be between 35-50 decibels, the ambient temperature must be protected between 24-26 0C and the lighting should be done with soft lighting. For the healing emotional environment in intensive care, it is necessary to prevent the patient from coping with pain, suffering, fear and anxiety, to protect his privacy, to prevent sensory and emotional overload / deprivation. Nasal or oral tubing around the patients in intensive care unit, insufficiency caused by drains and cords, insomnia and pain are the main stressors.

As a result, care in a healing environment in the intensive care unit, in the context of privacy, safety and comfort, forms the basis of holistic patient care.
