About the PICU

A Note to Parents

At Golisano Children’s Hospital, we know how difficult it is for the whole family when a child is in the hospital. During this stressful time, please take comfort in knowing that your child is in good hands.

Your child's doctors, nurses and others are experts in pediatrics. We are dedicated to offering the best and safest care, and to treating each family with respect and kindness. We will do everything we can to make your stay as comfortable as possible for your family.

We encourage you to be as involved as possible in your child’s care. You know your child best. Share information that can help us care for your child and tell a nurse or doctor if something concerns you. Join in discussions, called rounds, when the team talks about your child’s condition and plan of care. Ask questions when you need more information, and ask about what your child’s care needs will be when they leave the hospital.

The PICU welcomes your questions, comments, compliments and suggestions for improvement.
