  • Stay With Your Child - We understand how critical a child’s parents are, not only to the health care team but also for a child for a speedy recovery and so we encourage parents to visit and stay with their children and do a regular bed side counselling at every important juncture in management of the child.

For the same reason, the waiting lounge for PICU patients is also separate and is stationed at same level just next to PICU for parents to have an easy access and always feel close to their recovering child.

Education / Training:

  • Pediatric critical care unit is accredited to conduct 1 year Paediatric Critical Care fellowship training course for paediatricians and the course is under IAP - College of Pediatric critical care.
  • Regular training programmes like PALS training, NRP training, Ventilation Workshops are carried out by our Consultants all through the year to train Pediatricians and the critical care nurses in order to improve quality of critical care across various hospitals in the country.

The centre’s expert critical care transport team composed of pediatric critical care trained fellow doctors and paediatric trained paramedics assures that the most sick child gets transported to our facility from any part of the country without any further de-stabilization of medical condition.
