The department has been operating since January 1, 2001, and is located in the vicinity of the Neonatal and Obstetrics Department. The department accepts newborns who require treatment and specialized medical equipment, born in the local hospital straight from the delivery room, from the Neonatal Ward, from neonatal departments of other hospitals, as well as newborns with adaptation disorders later – for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Since 2008, we have been a third-level reference center and we have been accredited. In 2018, the Branch underwent a major renovation and modern equipment was acquired. The scope of health services includes the optimal treatment of newborns, premature babies in life-threatening conditions, including in particular:
  • management of cardiopulmonary resuscitation,
  • conducting respiratory therapy in all currently available ventilation modes, optimal for the patient’s condition,
  • management related to haemodynamic monitoring, i.e. central venous tract protection, use of invasive systems, monitoring, use
  • treatment of intrauterine and acquired infections,
  • treatment of premature babies, even those with extremely low body weight
  • treatment of intracranial bleeding,
  • diagnosis and treatment of pathological jaundice, performing exchangeable blood transfusions,
  • initial preparation for the treatment of newborns with congenital heart defects – administration of Prostin.
The department has the opportunity to consult newborns with specialists on site:
  • pediatric surgeon,
  • pediatric cardiologist,
  • pediatric neurologist,
  • ophthalmologist,
  • children’s rehabilitator,
  • lactation consultant,
  • psychologist,
  • pediatric endocrinologist.
The branch is equipped with the most modern specialist equipment. It has 20 stations, including 8 intensive care stations, 6 continuous care stations, and 6 indirect care stations. All stations are fully capable of monitoring the vital functions of newborns in a life-threatening condition. We have modern open and closed incubators as well as diagnostic equipment enabling diagnosis at the patient’s bedside (bedside X-ray and ultrasound machines), glucose analyzers, gas and ion analyzers. Mothers of newborns staying in the Neonatal Pathology Department have contact with their babies, can feed them, if the baby’s condition allows it, and participate in nursing processes. After being discharged home, the newborn is referred to the hospital Newborn Pathology Clinic, where he is still under the care of neonatologists.
