Your Child’s Room

Room assignments at Children’s Hospital are based upon the admitting diagnosis and the bed availability on the day of admission.

Room temperature

All rooms in the hospital are centrally heated and air conditioned. If the temperature is not comfortable, please notify Guest Services at extension 4444.

Calling your nurse

A nurse call button is located on each patient’s bedside. When the button is pressed, the nursing station is alerted that you need assistance, and a light flashes above your door. A staff member will respond to your signal as soon as possible.
