Boston Children's Dialysis Unit on Farley 4 is home to an experienced and caring multidisciplinary staff that includes doctors and nurses, as well as a dietitian, social worker and Child Life specialist—all with specialty training in the care of children and young adults with kidney disease.
Post-operative intensive care
Following heart and lung transplants, children recover under close monitoring in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) on 8 South of the Main building.
Patient safety and quality assurance are priorities in our CICU, with regular reviews of all practices and procedures. The attending physicians on staff work full time in the CICU and have training in specialty areas, including pediatric critical care, cardiology and cardiac anesthesia.
Their knowledge, together with sophisticated monitoring and support equipment, enables them to recognize problems quickly and respond effectively.
After a child has a kidney, liver, intestine or multivisceral transplant, he or she is admitted to the Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit on 7 South of the Main building. (Some kidney recipients are admitted to the Post-Anesthesia Recovery Unit, rather than intensive care.)
Specially trained pediatric intensivists, nurses and a host of support staff care for more than 2,000 critically ill children annually in the MSICU, from newborn to college-age, across the entire spectrum of childhood disease.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
