Company description
Parents and carers are an important part of the ward team. You are therefore welcome to visit your child. The care of each child is our main priority and it must be remembered that children who are ill or who are recovering from surgery or investigations need adequate rest. Space is limited on the wards and therefore it is important to limit visitors for health and safety reasons. Therefore we have put in place the following arrangements. We have a policy of open visiting for parents only. After 8pm only parents are permitted to visit. Parents are asked to keep other visitors to a minimum.
Remember that it is important to maintain a quiet environment for your child. You are responsible for the safety and behaviour of any brothers or sisters coming to visit. Please arrange supervision of brothers and sisters at all times. Restricting the number of visitors can help us to prevent the spread of infection. Only two visitors are permitted at your child’s bedside at any one time. Visitors must use the hand gel provided when entering and leaving the ward. Parents should advise other family members and friends about these visiting arrangements should they wish to visit your child.
Visitors may be asked to leave the ward when your child is undergoing clinical procedures. This is to enable staff to focus on the needs of your child. Some wards have slightly different visiting arrangements due to the nature of the care provided. Please check with nursing staff on your child’s ward. There will be times during the year when further visiting restrictions will be in place throughout the hospital due to outbreaks of infectious illness. Please respect any visiting restrictions which may be in place while your child is in hospital.* Please do not visit if you are feeling unwell yourself. If your child’s brothers and/or sisters are feeling unwell themselves or have been exposed to illness at school or nursery, please ensure that they do not visit your child in hospital.
