ORH 2018 - Joyful Moments for Patients
The first patients have been successfully operated on and are returned to their parents, who are often overwhelmed with emotion. For best outcomes, experience shows that an early involvement of the parents in post operative care is a must. An uneventful and smooth recovery is what the team is aiming for. Besides pain relief and antibiotic medication, a well-illustrated leaflet explaining how to look after the little patients and a toy are provided and the families the families make their ways back home. For those families who have travelled up to Manila from the provinces for their surgery, ORH covers the cost of their transport to and from their homes, as well as their accommodation and meals while in Manila.
