The sector has 15 incubators and a multidisciplinary health staff that is in charge of following the growth of the baby.

Chamorro explained that, once the premature child is stabilized, the parents can enter the room to visit them and stay as long as they want. However, for the rest of the visits there are specific hours.

Currently, he pointed out, “all the units are occupied” within intensive care. But, as the children improve, they are transferred to other areas of less complexity, and thus these incubators are used for other babies waiting to be hospitalized.
