The Unit

The Unit is divided into the following distinct areas:

  • High-dependency Unit

    This caters to the treatment of the critically sick infants, who require ventilation (life support) and intravenous feeding. This level of care is called Level 3 Neonatal Care equipped with 9 beds with multi channel monitors, infusion pumps and bubble CPAP ventilation facilities.

  • Low-dependency Unit

    For infants who require close monitoring and care such as supplemental oxygen for respiratory distress or phototherapy for jaundice. This level of care includes tube feeding and also includes the care of babies recovering from illnesses or operations like Tracheoesophageal Atresia/ Dichromatic Hernia.

  • Isolation Unit

    The Isolation room is facilitated to cater to babies needing strict infection control measures, such as those suffering from severe sepsis.

  • Rooming-in Unit

    Infants and their mothers are given a chance to bond together prior to discharge. The mothers are also helped to manage their babies confidently before discharge and trained to attend the special needs of their infants/ new born.

Other Services

Neonatal Transport Ambulance

Rama Hospital runs a neonatal transport ambulance service round the clock, which reaches babies in distress and brings them to the NICU. We offer this service to hospitals in and around the region of NCR. Our ambulances are well equipped with necessary equipment and are manned by our resident doctors. High-risk babies thus receive high quality medical care right at the point of birth.

High Risk Baby Follow-up
