The child and hospital on the avoidable harmful effects

The child and hospital on the avoidable harmful effects

Orvosi Hetilap 128(13): 663-665

We examined the pyschological problems in children who were visited daily or less frequently while in hospital, through questionnaires sent to the parents and through direct interviews with the children and mothers. Children visted daily still develop an increased dependence on their mothers, while those visited less frequently also show a high proportion of behavioural changes and relate disturbing experiences. This was also the finding through a word-association test. More severe psychological disturbances can be avoided by involving mothers in the care of their children in hospital and through the introduction of a friendlier environment there.
