The 4 Main Medical Unit is a fast pace 22 bed unit that provides patient-family-centered care to acute and chronically ill infants, children and adolescents. These children have a wide variety of medical diagnosis to include RSV, Bronchiolitis, Asthma, Pneumonia, Croup, Kawasaki, Hyperbilirubinemia, s/p T& A, Lymphadenitis, Cellulitis and Gastroenteritis. The average length of stay is 12 to 72 hours. Therefore, a multidisciplinary collaboration among the medical teams and nursing staff is vital to delivering safe care.
All nursing practice is based on the legal scope of practice, national and specialty nursing standards, Children's National Policies and Procedures, and
in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Professional Model of Care requires registered professional nurses to be responsible and
accountable for their own practice. Children's National supports the development of RN relationships within the community; specifically those
relationships associated with the health and well being of the community at large.
