Staying in hospital with your child

Being in hospital may be very upsetting and confusing for your child, so it is best if they have a parent or carer with them as much as possible. It will help if you can stay, at least for the first few nights. If you are unable to stay yourself, another carer may stay in your place by agreement with the ward staff.
