Question #16108
what are the differences between the different categories of pediatric patients?
Expert's answer
We can allocate next categories of pediatric patients:
• Minimum Care:
Infant or toddler, stable from a clinical and nursing point of view, accompanied full time by the mother or legal guardian,
who performs feeding and hygiene activities and provides comfort to the child regardless of nursing service.
Preschooler or school age child, stable from a clinical and nursing point of view, accompanied full time by a
trusted person, who participates in the child’s self-care actions, regardless of the nursing team.
Adolescent, stable from a clinical and nursing point of view, having or not having a companion full time, collaborates
in treatment and performs self-care actions under the supervision of a nurse.
• Intermediate care:
Infant or toddler, stable from a clinical and nursing point of view, accompanied full time by a mother or legal guardian,
who performs feeding and hygiene activities and provides comfort to the child, but requires guidance from
nurses to perform such activities. Preschooler or school age child, stable from a clinical
and nursing point of view, accompanied full time by a trusted person, who performs self-care actions jointly with
the child, but requires guidance from nurses to perform such activities.
Adolescent, stable from a clinical and nursing point of view, having or not having a companion full time, collaborates
in treatment and performs self-care actions, but requires guidance from nurses to perform such activities.
• High Dependence Care:
Infant, toddler, preschooler, or school aged child, stable from a clinical and nursing point of view, may or may not
have a chronic pathology, who even with a companion full time requires help eating, accomplishing hygiene and comfort
activities and/or other specific nursing care.
Adolescent, stable from a clinical and nursing point of view, may or may not have a chronic pathology, who
regardless of a companion, is not able to collaborate with treatment and/or requires help eating, performing
hygiene and comfort activities or other specific nursing care.
• Semi-Intensive Care:
Pediatric patient (newborn, infant, preschooler, school age child or adolescent) subject to unstable vital signs or
glycemic levels, without imminent risk of death, who regardless of a companion, requires continuing and specialized
nursing and medical care.
• Intensive Care:
Pediatric patient (newborn, infant, preschooler, school age child or adolescent) in a severe condition,
subject to unstable vital signs, with imminent risk of death and requires continuing and specialized nursing
and medical care.
