North Mississippi Medical Center's pediatric unit, located on the hospital's fourth floor, serves children from discharge after birth through 18 years of age. The staff includes experienced full-time and part-time nurses, some of whom are certified in pediatrics and many of whom have more than 20 years of tenure at NMMC. Pediatric patients include those with general childhood illnesses, as well as those recuperating from surgery. Respiratory Care services are available around the clock when needed.
The "Doodlebooks" project allows children hospitalized on NMMC's pediatric unit to use donated videos and games from a cart, and to select one book to keep. Jamie and Scott Seale of Tupelo launched Doodlebooks in memory of their son, William, who died shortly after his first birthday from complications caused by congenital heart defects. Doodlebooks is derived from William's nickname, "Doodlebug."
In addition, each pediatric inpatient receives an age-appropriate new toy, thanks to donations from employees, individuals and groups.
