PALMA hospital creates a special carnival for newborns and their parents.

Parents of babies who have been admitted into hospital are understandably very worried about their newborns.

For the fifth consecutive year, the staff of the Neonatology Unit of the Son Llàtzer University Hospital in Palma have created their own special carnival to try to ease the fears of the parents.

Each of the babies is dressed in a special carnival costume and according to Elena Torrens, a nursing supervisor “these families spend weeks or months here, and it can be a difficult time.

“The opportunity to celebrate with their babies gives them a sense of normalcy, and allows them to enjoy the first milestones of their babies, which is what every family wants. For us, the emotional health of families is, without a doubt, an important part of our care.”

With this in mind, Julia Acevedo, a worker at the Hospital’s switchboard, has created crochet costumes for the little ones using 100 per cent natural cotton.

The neonatal unit has been working for some time to ensure excellent care, which includes not only accompanying parents 24 hours a day, but also recognising the baby and its family as a unit and seek to involve parents actively in all aspects of their child’s care.
