Finding your clinicWelcome Centers are located throughout the hospital and in Children’s Clinics Building. Welcome Center staff can help you with directions.
Identification bandsAn identification band will be placed on your child as soon as he or she is admitted to the hospital. Our staff must use that band to check your child’s identity before all procedures, including giving medication or giving blood. This is an important safety check to make sure your child gets the correct treatment.
Visitor badgesIdentification badges must be worn at all times by family members and visitors in the hospital. A parent/grandparent/guardian badge will be given only to adults who are directly responsible for the patient. A visitor badge will be given to others on the visitor list. Badges are available at our Welcome Centers and nurses’ stations. A new badge is needed every day. They can be turned in to a Welcome Center when you leave.
Visitor listParents or guardians create a visitor list when their child is admitted. Only the parent or guardian can add names to the list. All visitors, including family members, must be on the list to visit your child. For safety reasons we may remove people from the list. These people will not be allowed to visit. Some units have restrictions on visitors. Check with your child’s nurse.
Visiting hoursVisiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Parents, grandparents and guardians may visit anytime.
