Pediatric Inpatient Unit

Hospitalization

pediatrics inpatient unit Despite the best efforts of caregivers and the healthcare team, children may develop illnesses. Using the resources of the entire CF team, we will create a well-defined treatment plan tailored to the needs of your child that includes:
  • Review of health maintenance being done with suggestions for improvement
  • Oral antibiotics and/or inhaled antibiotics
  • Outpatient IV antibiotics taking the place of oral/inhaled antibiotics when necessary
  • Close monitoring of spirometry to determine continued need for therapy
Continued failure to improve spirometry or other concerning trends, such as weight loss, poor appetite, fatigue or sinusitis, will lead to hospital admission.
