Enfant

La base Rega HUG a fêté en 2011 ses 40 ans de présence sur sol genevois et ses 10 ans de rattachement avec les HUG. Gros plan sur la prise en charge des nouveau-nés au sein de la Rega.

Au 29 avenue de la Roseraie à Genève,  la deuxième Maison de la Fondation Ronald McDonald offre « petit chez soi… loin de leur chez soi » aux familles d’enfants hospitalisés aux HUG.

Sécurité et bien-être de la femme et de l'enfant sont les maîtres-mots qui vont accompagner le déroulement de l'accouchement à la maternité des Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève

Research

The pediatric admissions and emergencies division conducts clinical studies to achieve a better understanding of the pathogenesis of certain diseases and to improve diagnosis.

Ongoing studies are about:

  • Treating children under 3 years old with febrile conditions without a focus
  • Comparing two types of sutures for wounds (absorbable versus  non-absorbable)
  • The effect of cold on improving spasmodic croup in children
  • Flu diagnosis criteria in children
  • Drug allergies in children
  • Viral meningitis

Medical activities

The Pediatric Admissions and Emergency Division is open 24/7.

It admits children from birth up to 16 years of age.

The medical and paramedical services offered optimally meet the requirements of the Geneva, neighboring French and other canton populations, whether these be vital, relative or perceived emergencies.

The service is part of the Department of Women-Children-Teenagers.

Pediatric Intensive Care

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit has 12 beds. Your child can be admitted there for care or continuous monitoring.

It is normal for you to be worried. These pages are intended to familiarize you with the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and how it works, and to reassure you.
