Neonatal Death

(p.131) 5 Neonatal Death
Hospice Care for Children

Cheryl Marco Naulty

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines neonatal death in the context of pediatric palliative care. It suggests that the issue of death in the nursery is a complex one which is not easily answered by rules or regulations, legal or ethical arguments, medical facts, or emotional pleas. The chapter discusses the essential components of a successful hospice program, including pain management, bereavement care, and a mechanism for follow-up after death.

Keywords:   neonatal death, palliative care, hospice care, bereavement care, pain management
