Premises and equipment requirements for a pediatrician’s office

According to the licensing regulations, the following equipment should be available in the pediatrician’s office:

  • Scales for newborns or babies;
  • A medical scale with height rods;
  • A pediatrician’s kit;
  • A nurse kit for children’s city clinic;
  • A baby changing station, etc.

A complete list of requirements for the equipment of a pediatrician’s office, children’s specialized rooms and family doctor’s office can be found in Order No. 739 dd. 31.10.2011 and other orders of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

We would like to remind you that the lack of equipment specified in the license requirements will lead to rejection of a license. However, in some cases, family doctors may avoid certain equipment, but this is rather an exception and does not apply to pediatricians.

It is also necessary to keep in mind the requirements for the premises used for medical practice. For example, in accordance with the State Building Regulations for Healthcare Institutions, the office of the family doctor should be at least 18 square meters, and the office of a pediatrician should be at least 15 square meters.
