Summary

Within the Children's Dept, the haematology unit welcomes children from birth to 18, to manage treatments, relapses and palliative care (450 stays/year). The rooms are under controlled pressure, some with airlocks, because the children here have very weakened immune defenses. The rooms are very old and in need of complete renovation, with modern materials and equipment, adapted to children: your donation will make a difference for future generations of young patients.

Challenge

These Children experience "extreme conditions" during their hospital stay: separation from home/ prolonged stay (several weeks)/ draconian antimicrobial isolation/ accommodation reduced to functionality / life under constant threat (unthinkable at this age). However, the equipments are old and not fully adapted to children.

Solution

Project is meant to completely rebuilt the Unit, begining with the rooms, to ensure state-of-the-art antimicrobial protection while letting life in : child adapted bedroom & bathroom with high protection coatings, faucets, sinks, floor, medical bed head sheath, lighting adapted for visual difficulties This project has been designed along with the commitment of the hospital and the field experience of health care staff. The project will start as soon as funded, everything's ready.

Long-Term Impact

In addition to offering better antimicrobial security to avoid difficulties/relapses and to improving comfort during their stay, it has been shown that a suitable environment provides important psychological support that helps the child to heal. The impact is also important to better return to "normal" life, for those who can heal. It also gives better conditions for families who must accompagny the end of life of their child.
