Department of Neonatology with neonatal intensive care unit is an inseparable part of the Perinatological centre Brno. This centre is situated within University Hospital Brno and Maternity Hospital at Obilní trh square. The latter celebrated 120 years anniversary on the 8th November 2008. Department of Neonatology was established in 1949. At this time it is accredited as Baby-Friendly Hospital and obtained certification ISO 9001.
We provide all tree levels of neonatology care – resuscitation and intensive care, intermediate care and nursery for term and healthy newborn. The main benefit of this organization is that every child always gets adequate care according to his/her individual needs without further transport. Another big undisputable advantage is the possibility of permanent contact between mother and child that facilitates the first latch on and breastfeeding – nipple feeding or alternative ways of feeding of the baby by breast milk from his own mother. There are rooms for nursing mothers at their disposal enable them to be present during long-term hospitalization of premature neonates often till infancy.
In 1994 neonatal consulting rooms have been established with focus on follow up monitoring of high-risk newborns after their discharge till the age of three. It is a complex care performed by pediatrician, child neurologist, physiotherapeutist, child nurses and developmental psychologist. The patients´ data about late morbidity collected of this follow up are then used for evaluating the quality of perinatal care and clinical studies.
