Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit Discharge

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Discharge plans are individualized to best meet each child's medical needs and family circumstances. Depending on your child's individual needs, he or she will be transferred either to an intermediate care hospital closer to home, directly to a specialized pediatric unit at Boston Children's Hospital, to a long term care facility for prolonged recovery, or directly home.

Families of children going home from the MSICU will have teaching on how to care for your child at home, and, if needed, support services in place such as a visiting nurse service.

We encourage all parents to obtain CPR training. To check the training schedule, contact the Center for Families at 617-355-6279.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
