Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health flu-related visitor restrictions have been lifted. However, because babies, especially those who are ill or premature, are at higher risk of serious complications if they get the flu, visitation restrictions are still in place for all Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) until further notice.
Children with complex medical conditions require a range of specialty care. If your child has a life-limiting or life-threatening medical condition, coordinating his or her care can be challenging. Coordination of care is a service provided by the Integrative Medicine & Palliative Care Department at Riley at IU Health that assists families with complicated medical decision-making and advocates for the family's goals of care.
Your child’s care plan may require visits with multiple specialists in multiple locations. In addition to specialty doctors, this may include a pediatrician, counselor, spiritual support professional and palliative care specialist. Coordinating visits between hospital and outpatient care providers can become overwhelming. Your child's integrative medicine and palliative care team will help organize these visits to reduce stress and ensure his or her medical care is seamless.
In order to advocate for your family’s goals of care, we work with you to determine those goals of care. Our team helps present those wishes at care conferences or times of decision-making. If ideas are suggested that do not fall in line with your family’s wishes, our team will always speak up on behalf of your family.
Your child's integrative medicine and palliative care team will assist with the following:
Placing the coordination of your child's care in the hands of his or her integrative medicine and palliative care team can reduce your worries and allow you to focus on spending quality time with your child.
In addition to our primary hospital location at the Academic Health Center in Indianapolis, IN, we have convenient locations to better serve our communities throughout the state.
