Neonatal Comfort Care Program

A moving presentation by Dr. Elvira Parravicini on the Neonatal Comfort Care Program offered at New York Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital was hosted by The Life Center of Long Island this past week at the Knights of Columbus #4428- Our Lady of the Rosary Council in Deer Park.

image003The Neonatal Comfort Care Program is offered to parents when there are no medical and surgical treatments available to help an infant born with a life-limiting condition or terminal illness. The program is designed to provide all of the care these babies need to have their basic needs satisfied during their short lives, in an environment that is compassionate, warm and loving. The program includes family/baby bonding, warmth, nutrition and hydration, as well as relief of any pain and discomfort.
