Your Child's Room
In the PICU, each patient will have a private room. We try to keep children in the same room for the duration of their PICU stay, but on occasion, we may need to relocate patients.
Each room has either a couch or chair that opens into a bed. Please see your nurse for sleeping arrangements.
Your child will be placed in a bed or crib appropriate to their size. Your nurse will teach you how to operate the bed. Side rails of cribs and beds must be in the “up” position at all times, unless you are directly attending to your child at their bedside.
Call bells are located at each bedside. The call bells also control the television in each room.
We will supply diapers, wipes, hospital gowns, pajama bottoms, slipper socks and personal care items for your child. Feel free to bring comfort items from home for your child.
Showers are available on the unit for parent use. Restrooms are available in patient rooms and in the waiting room.
The hospital has free wireless internet. No password is needed. The network name is “URMCguest.” There are computers in the activity room in the PICU, and televisions in each room equipped with internet, cable TV and age-appropriate movies.
Phones are in each room for local calls. These phones will also be used to order meals for your child.
