The mission of a pediatric inpatient unit, no matter how large or small, whether in a private or public hospital, is to provide optimum, age- appropriate care for each patient and to lend sensitive and understanding support to his or her family. The key to success in achieving this mission is the quality and commitment of the personnel on the unit. If the skills and the dedication are present and there is flexibility in staffing assignments, the desired patient care outcomes will be inevitable.
