For You as a Parent: Our interdisciplinary healthcare team includes you as parents in healthcare decisions so that you can feel secure in the knowledge that your child is being well taken care of. Our team of pediatricians, pediatric nurses, and other healthcare providers strive to make your child’s hospital experience, and your time at PMHD as pleasant as possible.
We want parents to be involved in the care of their child and encourage their participation. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to ask us. Spending the night with your sick child is permitted. Sleep chairs are provided for your comfort. We allow one parent or guardian to stay each night. If you plan to sleep in your child’s room, please remember to bring a pillow and blanket from home.
Meals are served in the cafeteria from 7:00 to 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Coffee and tea is available in the cafeteria (free) at all times. Food is not allowed to be brought from the cafeteria or outside the hospital into the Pediatrics Unit.
