Activity

The Same-Day Paediatric Care Clinic offers a modern form of care for young patients. They are diagnosed and treated without hospitalisation. The Clinic deals with diagnostically challenging cases where previous ambulatory tests commissioned by the general practitioner have not explained the child's health problems. In most cases, those problems include: chronic and recurrent abdominal pain and headache, recurrent respiratory tract infections and urinary tract infections, deficiency of weight and height, obesity, hypertension, prolonged neonatal jaundice, abnormal psychomotor development and other conditions. The scope of diagnosis offered is often the same as during hospitalisation but the patient does not need medical care, nutrition or a bed in the evening or at night, and family members can stay with the child, which has a positive psychological effect.

The Clinic admits children from birth to 18 years of age.

Patient admission procedure

  • Patient admission procedure

Patients are classified for admission on the basis of previously provided documentation (in person or by regular mail: the original referral, discharge diagnosis from the doctor in charge, containing a description of the patient's problem, previous tests and consultations, hospitalisations, treatment administered to date, records from specialist clinics). (Sample discharge diagnosis). We ask for patient data with the PESEL number, exact address of residence and a contact telephone number.

Having received the medical records, we review them and set the appointment date.

Parents are notified by phone about the appointment date and time.

On the day of the appointment, the patient should report to Admissions at about 8:30 a.m. The patient will be registered and directed to the Clinic.

Any child admitted to the Clinic must be accompanied by his/her legal guardian, even if the patient is over 16 years old.

Documents required at admission:

  • Referral to the Clinic
  • Child's medical records book
  • Child's PESEL number
  • Parent's/guardian's personal identity card (for legal guardians: court decision)
  • Medical records (previous tests, discharge documents from previous hospital stays), if any.

Patients stay at the Clinic until about 1–2 p.m.

WE PROVIDE NO MEALS.

Throughout his/her stay at the Clinic, the child is in the care of her/his parents or legal guardians.
