What to expect

Being away from home and receiving medical treatment can be especially difficult for children and their families. The hospital staff is available around-the-clock to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Cots are made available for parents, who are expected to stay with their child.

What to bring

If your child is staying overnight, there are a number of items you may want to bring. Toys and games are not available due to infection control, children  should also bring along a favourite toy or blanket. Let your nurse know about any food preferences to help you make any special arrangements. Please remember to put the child’s name on each item and check to make sure that the item is not flammable.
