Paediatric Ward, St. Anne's Hospital, Fall River Massachusetts. One of a number of cards I have from this still-operating New England hospital, founded in 1906 by the Dominican Sisters of the Presentation.

:Caduceus:[F2U] heart menhera bullet  Paediatric medicine is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. Paediatricians monitor their patients' growth and development from infancy to young adulthood and usually provide routine healthcare treatments, such as physical examinations, immunizations and prescriptions for antibiotics to treat bacterial infections. Paediatricians  can specialize in pediatric surgery or other fields to best treat their young patients.

Cross Blue Emblem :icanfixit:  In U.S. hospitals, the shift from large patient wards to private and semi-private patients' rooms began after the Second World War and was nearly complete by the early 1970s. In Florence Nightingale's day, having all of the patients in the same room as the on-duty nurse was helpful for monitoring. But today, technology allows patients to be monitored remotely.

.:Puppy:.Pink teddy bearPanda Emoji-32 (Happy Blush) [V2]F2U: Baby Pink Neko Blob Icon Paediatric wards  offer specialized equipment and technology designed specifically for children and amenities created to support the specific needs of a family. This usually includes a family kitchen, a family conference room and a playroom. Each patient's room features a built-in day bed for family, a built-in desk with internet connection, video games/DVD console and all of the storage a family might need for their stay.
