Children are cared for using an interprofessional team approach. Some of the team members that may be taking care of your child on paediatrics are: specially trained nurses. They have special certifications to enhance the care and the quality of service your child will receive. Paediatricians and Neonatologists are specially trained doctors that care for children; they are a part of the team that will be involved with your child. A Social Worker is available who has special training in dealing with children and their families. A Pharmacist is available as required by the team; other disciplines are called in to consult on your child as it is necessary for the appropriate care of your child.
A parent / guardian is encouraged to stay with their child 24 hours. There are roll-away cots available on a first come, first serve basis. Parents/guardians are involved in the care of the children where appropriate and are kept up to date with all information from the team as appropriate.
