The Pediatric Neurological Clinics of CIREN is in charge of the study, treatment and rehabilitation of chronic neurological diseases in children. Its objectives are to show its experience in the nursing care to children suffering from these disease and set up most effective actions according to the disease and the characteristics of the patient. For this purpose, a retrospective study of 140 patients admitted to the clinics from January 1996 to November 1998 was made. There was a predominance of spastic-type cerebral palsy. Nursing labor is aimed at avoiding osteo-articular deformities and increase fitness, among other things. Patients with epilepsy and mental retardation were observed. The work of nurses is focused at educating the parents of these children in their management and in facing the social implications of this disease. Nursing care is particularly important since the nurse is the one who permanently stay on the patient’s side so she/he is the one that better knows the characteristics and limitations of a patient and can work for making his/her life more comfortable.
