One of the highlights of our Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit is the regular and detailed counselling of the parents and family of all children admitted in the NICU and PICU. On a daily basis, at a scheduled time, the consultant meets with the parents in a special counseling room and explain the medical condition of their child in simple layman’s terms.
Information is given about the current working or confirmed diagnosis of the child.
This personalized attention and time given by our consultants regularly allays the fears the parents they have about their child, clarify all doubts and questions and allows them to ask questions to fully understand their child’s illness and the stage of illness.
Any surgical procedures, invasive procedures are also explained sometimes with the help of simple diagrams and informed written consent obtained as and when necessary by our consultants and Pediatrician.
