Health Education to Hospitalised Child
You have unique opportunity for teaching and reinforcing good hygienic care while the child is hospitalised. Clean hair, nails, clothing as well as good grooming are essential to a pleasing appearance. You as a nurse should inform parents and children about diagnosis and medical treatment. Encourage children to clarify doubts/concepts regarding illness.
The results of various research studies conducted by nursing personnel have shown that complications of many diseases could be prevented if the parents are aware of symptoms of various diseases, identified and provided timely medical attention to their children.
