What is Nursery?

21:59 - 4 May , 2021

Medical procedure



It is an area designed exclusively to monitor and address the needs of newborns in the first hours after birth and until the mother is discharged. 

They have strict safety, quality, and surveillance standards, since both a nurse and a security guard verify the babies’ bracelets when they leave the nursery, guarding them along the way and verifying that the mother and child’s bracelets match. The same thing happens when the newborn returns to the nursery.

The nursery is made up of incubators, thermal cribs, artificial respiration, phototherapy lamps, infusion pumps, vital signs monitors, and the necessary equipment to assist newborns at all times until the mother and baby are discharged. 

If any illness or problem is detected in the baby while it remains in observation, it will be channeled to the Pathological Nursery area, where various medical specialists and health professionals will provide the necessary treatment and care.

In our Pediatric Center, a team of highly trained specialists awaits you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ensuring optimal care and results by providing care based on clinical practice guidelines and international protocols.
