  6. How will the hospital communicate with me when my child is admitted?
    During your child's hospital stay, he or she will be cared for by a team of healthcare professionals. Every morning, the team meets in each patient's room to review progress, discuss treatments, and develop care plans. These meetings are called "rounds". Families are an important part of the care team and are encouraged to participate in these rounds. Rounds are also a good time to ask questions and to tell the team about your child. If you are unable or prefer not to participate in rounds, a member of the healthcare team can update you in your preferred time.
  7. How to prevent infection in the hospital?
    As sick and injured children are so vulnerable, it is very important that anyone who has a cold, fever, vomiting or diarrhea should not visit the hospital. A parent or guardian who has a cold may be able to visit, but will be required to wear a mask. Washing your hands is a top priority to prevent the spread of infections. All healthcare professionals and visitors must wash their hands with soap and hot water or use the alcohol-based sanitizer when entering or leaving the patient's room.
  8. Are vaccines safe?
    Despite recent debates and fears, it is an irrefutable fact that vaccines have improved child heath around the world and reduced the number of children affected by diseases like chickenpox, polio and measles. A vaccine's safety is also researched regularly, and its schedule is re-evaluated annually by the nation’s top disease experts and doctors.
