There is a maximum of 2 other visitors per patient on this ward. These visitors should be over 18 years of age or accompanied by someone who is. Visitor restrictions may apply in some circumstances which will be advised by the nursing staff. If restrictions are in place, they are in the best interest of the child or parent and for confidentiality reasons we may not be able to explain the purpose of these restrictions.

Staying with your child

Parents/Guardians have no restrictions when visiting their child. Cot sides must be up at all times when child is in the cot and there is a telephone in the room for incoming calls only. Please inform staff if you are leaving a child unattended.

If you do not wish to avail of this or wish to stay at your child's bedside every effort will be made to provide a camp bed for you. Camp beds must be folded away during the day to allow for easy access and cleaning. Bathroom and shower facilities are available for resident parents.
