Évaluation de l'unité mère-enfant du centre hospitalier universitaire d'Angers : questionnaire de satisfaction adressé aux parents du 1er juin au 31 octobre 2010

Abstract : The Kangaroo Unities, known as Mother-Child Unities in official documents, have been appearing progressively for some twenty years in France. They were inspired by the Colombian Mother-Kangaroo method, placing precociously and continuously premature or hypertrophied newborn young on the mother's chest with skin to skin contact. The aim: to avoid precocious separation of the mother-child couple whenever the latter is in need of particular medical care without a vital prognostic being pronounced.

Objectives: Our study sought to appreciate couples' and more particularly mothers' satisfaction of environment and treatment during hospital care in the Mother-Child Unity which was created in the Angers Hospital in 2001. Methods: A questionnaire was distributed directly to eighty patients during their stay in the service.

Results: With a reply percentage of 91.1%, global satisfaction was excellent as the average general appreciation mark of 9.22/10 proved. Nonetheless, certain aspects could be improved aiming at a more global all-inclusive procedure for both parents and the professionals: the possibility for fathers to be included, meaning him being able to spend the night in the company of the mother-child couple, in order to constitute the mother-father-baby triad before their return home, to diminish the feeling of seclusion felt by several parents and to integrate the midwives more completely in the treatment procedure by a revision of the different care profiles and of the service protocol.
