    Visiting Hours:

    For your child’s security, we require that a parent or other close relative stay with each child. The child feels more secure and responds better to the strange environment when a familiar person is in attendance. This person must be 18 years of age if not the child’s parent. Please do not allow other siblings to stay with you and your sick children.

    Visiting hours are over at 9 p.m. After the visitors leave, the parent and child can begin to settle down for bedtime. We provide a lounge-a-chair (reclines into a bed) upon which the parent can sleep.

    To prevent the children from contacting other illnesses, visiting in other patient rooms with other children is not allowed.

    We ask that you encourage your visitors to adhere to the visiting hours and that you have only two visitors at a time.

    If small children do visit, they must be free of colds or other illnesses and be kept within your room. These visiting children are not allowed to play in the halls or in the play area provided for our patients. This is for their protection as well as other patients. Small children, who are visiting, may not spend the night.

    Food:
    We will provide formula, juices, baby food, and baby cereals that are on hospital formulary- please ask. Trays will come from dietary. Before bringing in food from outside the hospital, check with the nurse about the child’s diet. Please inform us if your child has any food allergies or food dislikes. A dietician is available to assist in meal planning for your child relative to your child’s food dislikes.

    One courtesy tray per meal will be provided for the adult staying in your room. [/tippy]
