An access-controlled door has been installed at the entrance to the Paediatric Ward to limit the number of visitors per bed and to ensure the safety of your child.
Parents play a vital role during their child’s recovery and we encourage that at least one parent stays with their child during this time. To ensure that the period of hospitalisation is easier for both parents and their child, we have provided a centralised play area and rest room in the Paediatric Ward. The play area has toys for the children and a television to watch a selection of child-friendly DVDs. A refreshment trolley is also available to sustain parents during their child’s hospital stay. It is essential that you have enough energy to support your child. We suggest that you get enough sleep, have regular meals, exercise and spend some time away from the hospital setting.
Only one parent is allowed to stay with their child after 20h00 at night. Each bedside chair can transform into a sleeper couch, with a blanket and pillow provided. For infection control, no self-owned blankets and pillows are allowed in the Paediatric Ward and no parent is allowed to sleep on the ground or in their child’s hospital bed. All patients must be bathed before 06h00. The sleeper couch must be folded back into a chair position at 6h00 every morning and nursing staff will assist in tidying the Paediatric Ward. This is to ensure that the department is neat and organised before the day staff and doctors arrive for their clinical rounds.
