United Regional provides you and your family with advanced medical technology and compassionate care in a place where people care about your child’s health and wellbeing.

We understand that families play an important role in their child’s recovery. We welcome and appreciate your presence and support, and we encourage your participation in your child’s care. Ask as many questions as you wish. We want you to understand your child’s illness and our plan of care.

General Information

Confidentiality

The health team professionals will keep you updated on your child’s condition throughout your stay at the Children’s Center. However, we can not provide information to callers about your child’s condition due to confidentiality laws.

Safety

For your child’s safety, the side rails of beds and cribs should be raised unless someone is directly at the bedside. The unit is monitored and equipped with sensors to let the staff know when a patient leaves the unit. Parents, please inform the nursing staff if you are leaving the unit with your child.

Playroom

We have a playroom with toys, games, books and puzzles for your child to enjoy when their condition improves. Video games and movies are available and may be checked out at the nurses’ station.

Important Tips

  • You may want to bring your child’s favorite toy or blanket from home. Please label all items with the child’s name.
  • Be honest with your child. Do not leave without saying goodbye.
  • Ask your child’s nurse to help you explain what will happen and why.
  • Remember, that you may experience a lot of stress and emotion during your time at the hospital. Please give yourself permission to leave for periods of time without feeling guilty. We hope your stay with us is a comfortable one. We are here for both you and your child.
