A vaccination calendar is given to parents for the immunization schedule from birth up to age 16.
Our hospital upholds the "cold chain" system that maintains optimal conditions during the transport, storage, and handling of vaccines, starting at the manufacturer and ending with the administration of the vaccine to the baby.
Regular reminders/alerts are sent through SMS or by email to help with the follow-up.
All high risk babies are screened for ROP in our unit and those who require further follow up are examined in high-risk follow up clinics.
All high risk babies are subjected to hearing screening ( OAE- otoacoustic emission) and followed up.
KMC is skin to skin contact between mother and baby provides warmth, improves oxygenation, helps in weight gain and decreases the chances of infection; thus, dramatically increasing the chances of the baby’s survival.
We have a separate unit dedicated strongly to maintain parents’ involvement in intensive care, thus creating a nurturing environment for the preemies’
We have separate area for breast feeding where mother can feed her baby with ease. We support the mothers in every way and encourage them to breast feed the baby.

Bedside sonography machine is available . Expert radiologists trained in neonatal neuro-sonogram carry out the sonography as per protocol.
Surfactant therapy is the medical administration of exogenous surfactant typically instilled directly into the lungs. Premature babies have immature lungs and insufficient surfactant. Exogenous surfactant replacement therapy is effective in reducing RDS mortality and morbidity in preterm infants.
The supply of nutrients to preterm neonates—especially extremely low-birthweight (ELBW) infants—is rarely adequate, and these infants accumulate major deficits in early postnatal life . A high proportion of ELBW infants exhibit poor growth in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), with those at the lowest gestational age and birthweight at greatest risk .However, growing evidence indicates that early use of parenteral nutrition may minimize protein losses and improve growth outcomes
Newborn babies are very much labile and require very close and continuous monitoring. The neonatal team continuously supervises the various parameters including the baby's vital signs like heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and how hard the baby is working to breathe, using an array of monitoring equipments like multi Para monitors, pulse-oxymeters, ECG monitors, NIBP ( Non Invasive Blood Pressure Monitoring) and IBP ( Invasive Blood Presuure ) monitors.
