Our 49-bed medical surgical and pediatric unit features all private rooms, so parents may visit their children any time, day or night. The hospital welcomes a family presence and encourages parents to have an active role in the treatment process. Sleeper beds are provided so that one parent may sleep in the child’s room, if desired. There is a cafeteria in the hospital.
Friends and family over age 14 may visit between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Because children are more likely to carry infections, siblings and friends under age 14 must have the approval of your child’s nurse before visiting.
What to Bring
We will provide everything your child needs during a stay at Broadlawns (including pajamas, diapers and personal hygiene items). However, younger children sometimes feel more comfortable when they have familiar items from home. Feel free to bring your child’s favorite toy, stuffed animal, slippers, pajamas, blanket, toothbrush and toothpaste, or any other belongings that will make your child more comfortable.
Before your child is discharged, we will discuss with you the care he or she will need at home. Please let your nurse know as soon as possible if you or your child will need any special assistance at home, such as transportation for doctor’s appointments, help with filling prescriptions or help caring for your other children. A social worker can put you in touch with community agencies that can help with these services.
