Pediatric Services at The Nebraska Medical Center strive to insure seamless, comprehensive, quality care across the health-care continuum. Pediatric Services utilize the family-centered care philosophy and multidisciplinary approach in an environment that fosters learning and utilization of evidence to improve practice.
Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)
The state-of-the-art PICU includes 20 beds with a family-focused waiting area and a physician-family consultation room.
The general pediatrics unit is comprised of 28 beds with 14 private rooms. Child Life Services provides a playroom and teen room. Educational Support Services are also integral to our pediatric services. The pediatric staff is comprised of Registered Nurses and Clerk/Patient Care Technicians. The nurse-to-patient ratio is determined by patient acuity and the individual needs of each patient.
An orientation program is tailored to each new staff member using the Performance Based Development System. Typical orientation for new practitioners in general pediatrics is 10 to 12 weeks and 24 weeks for the PICU. For experienced practitioners, the orientation is 6 to 12 weeks in general pediatrics and 16 weeks for the PICU.
