Nursing Care in the In-patient Section

  • Patients who need to be hospitalized to receive special, extended and continuous care over a certain duration based on their diagnosis and the stage of treatment are admitted in the in-patient section of the Hospital. This section is mainly located in the three circular towers of the Hospital building. The circular design enables the nurse in charge to be more in control, delivering the care more rapidly and more efficiently as the rooms are clustered around the nursing station instead of being aligned across long corridors. Moreover, the interior design of the towers facilitates family centered care as one parent of the child / patient of this section is required to live in with him during his hospitalization period.

  • Patients admitted to the inpatient section will require different aspects of care and expertise: chemotherapy administration, diagnosis of potential malignancy, supportive treatment, pre and post- operative care, palliative care, and treatment of complications including febrile neutropenia, convulsion, septicemia, hemorrhage and pneumonia. Supportive services in this section include central and peripheral intravenous line management, pain management, conscious sedation, nutritional support, social support, and psychological support.

  • Nursing care in the in-patient section extends to 228 beds including the 12-bed transit care unit and distributed across the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth floors of the in-patient towers. The in-patient section working hours are 24/7, and the ration of patients/nurses is 3/1.

  • As primary care givers for the patient and family, 57357 - inpatient nursing care team possesses the knowledge and the ability to perform all duties required of a nurse and beyond to make sure patients are as comfortable as possible.
