At MGM Healthcare, we have a 24x7 paediatric emergency service dedicated to the care of children from birth until 18 years of age. The service is manned by a paediatrician at all times. Children arriving at any time of the day are first thoroughly evaluated and their further care is dictated by the severity of their illness, in liaison with one of our senior paediatric consultants. Children presenting with ailments requiring simple interventions or monitoring for a brief duration are managed in the emergency room short stay ward for a few hours, reassessed and sent home after stabilisation with the need for inpatient admission. This is to facilitate the comfort of the child and the family.
