Abstract

Neonates are among those patients generating the highest hospital costs in recent years. There are no published data on the costs of neonatal intensive care in our country. The aim of our study was to analyse the cost of neonatal intensive care in a tertiary care unit. The average hospital charges per day were higher among non-survivors, (Rs. 1857) compared to survivors (Rs. 727). Care of more than 1250 gms infant is cost beneficial in our set up.
