Discuss the hospital stay with your child

Going into hospital can be very stressful for your child.  

  • Explain to your child why he or she is going into hospital, using simple words but explaining the reality of the situation. 
  • Explain that you will telephone to those who remain at home as often as possible with the latest news. 

Complete the Admissions formalities in advance

Before your child is hospitalised there are a number of administrative formalities to be completed at Admissions reception.   

  • Where? Admissions reception is located on the ground floor, route 010.  
  • Times? Admissions is open from Monday to Friday between 7 am and 5.30 pm and on Sundays and public holidays between 2 pm and 5.30 pm.   

If the child is to be operated on the holder of parental authority must sign an "authorisation to anaesthetize" and an "authorisation to operate".  You will be given these documents by the anaesthetist, doctor and/or nurse.  

The hospital has single and twin rooms. You can request a single room at the time of preadmission.
