The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit / Nursery is divided into three (3) levels:

Level 1- Admits in-house well babies from the Chong Hua Hospital Delivery Room whose mothers are either critically ill or have a health condition that compromises their ability to take care of their child. As per the DOH Rooming-In Protocol, well babies are transported together with their mothers to their room the moment they leave the Delivery Room

Level 2- Admits in-house babies who require intermediate care such as those requiring antibiotic therapy, oxygen or phototherapy

Level 3 - Can admit a total of six (6) in-house critically ill neonates who require intensive care such as preterm infants or term infants with any life-threatening conditions.

The unit also has two (2) isolation rooms for infectious patients and phototherapy room for treatment of babies with jaundice.

The NICU Level 3 comes equipped with 6 state-of-the-art infant Warmers, six (6) patient monitors, six (6) Leddy Bloo portable phototherapy lights, and with each cubicle having its own piped-in oxygen and suction.
The unit also provides a Mother & Child room where mothers can breastfeed their babies who are still admitted to the unit, a Lactation room for hospital employees who need to expectorate breast milk, and Conference room for use whenever physicians may need to discuss sensitive issues with the patient's family.
