Sickbay is the name given to the medical area aboard starships and starbases. This nomenclature is common in use by the Federation and Starfleet. Sickbays are usually equipped with the latest medical technologies and are staffed with various doctors and nurses who work under a chief medical officer. On smaller spacecraft and starships the sickbay is called a medical bay. Starbases on planetary surfaces may have a hospital in lieu of a sickbay, while space station outposts have an infirmary.
