Neonatal Critial Care Unit
If your baby is born very premature, is sick or requires close observation, they will be admitted to the Neonatal Critical Care Unit where they will receive specialised medical and nursing care. This unit consists of intensive care and special care nurseries and is situated on level 6 of Mater Mothers’ Hospitals.
Throughout your baby's stay any treatment required will be explained to you. You will be encouraged to be involved in your baby's care wherever possible as this helps to establish and strengthen your bond with your baby.
Infection control is especially important in the Neonatal Critical Care Unit and staff will advise you regarding the correct procedures for hand washing and visiting your baby.
