FOLLOW-UP OF HIGH RISK NEONATES
A significant proportion of babies who are discharged from NICU have certain high risk factors which means that they are at risk of growth or developmental delay. These babies need to be followed up closely so that any problems can be detected and treated at an earlier stage. These high risk factors include:
Nirmal hospital Pvt. Ltd. is running weekly Growth and Development Clinic for these high risk neonates on every wednesday between 12 PM and 2 PM. In this clinic, baby is examined at the ages of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. For premature babies, corrected age is used (i.e. age is counted from the due date of delivery). The baby is examined by a neonatologist and a pediatric physiotherapist. Baby is checked for age appropriate developmental achievements and his/her growth is checked and plotted on a growth chart. At the end, parents are advised about baby’s progress, areas where special attention is needed, baby’s diet and further follow-up.
The management of the hospital extends heartiest congratulations to the staff of the neonatology unit on this stupendous achievement.
WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!!!!
I wish to take this opportunity of sharing with you my vision of providing world-class health services to the people of south Gujarat.
