11:00 to 11:30

19:15 to 20:00

For optimal nursing care, the father will only be allowed to visit the mother and baby between 8:00 and 20:00.

To safeguard your baby's security, the visiting policy in our maternity ward is restricted and controlled by a security guard who is stationed at the entrance / exit of the ward.

Paediatric Facilities
We understand that having your child admitted to the hospital can be stressful and sometimes a frightening experience. In order to make it as comfortable as possible, we ask that you read the information below.

Facilities and services
This 23 bed unit offers a range of accommodation options for you and your child. Depending on your requirements, you may choose to either:

  • Multiple bedded room: These rooms have more than one bed / cot; therefore your child will be sharing the room with other children.
  • Mother and child room: We have a limited amount of private rooms available that allow one parent / legal guardian to room-in with the child. These rooms are available at an additional cost, which is not covered by medical aids. While using the rooming-in option, you will be provided with a bed to sleep in as well as 3 meals per day and refreshments. Enquire at Hospital Reception or in the Paediatric Ward if you wish to make use of this option.
  • Gastro-isolation room: This room is allocated to your child should he / she be diagnosed with Gastroenteritis (i.e., commonly known as Gastro).
  • Neurological observation room: Your child will be admitted into this room when your child's paediatrician specifically needs to observe and investigate your child's neurological symptoms with the aid of medically advanced camera that is fitted into the room.

In preparation: What to pack?
When preparing to admit your child into the paediatric ward, we advise that you pack the following items to ensure that your child has a comfortable stay with us:

  • Disposable nappies (if using)
  • Wet wipes
  • Toiletries
  • 2 sets of clean clothes per day
  • 1 comfort toy or blanket

Dietary needs
The onsite kitchen has gone to great lengths to design a creative and innovative menu that will ensure your child is nutrionally looked after. The reason for this is that we believe that nutrition plays an important role in making your child healthier. If you have any special dietary requirements for your child, feel free to inform the nurse in charge of your child's care.

Security for children
The security and welfare your child is of upmost importance. For this reason, the entrance / exit of the paediatric ward is access controlled by the paediatric personnel. That is to say, when a child is admitted, both the parents / legal guardian(s) are issued with a security bracelet. To enter the ward, this bracelet must be shown to the security and / or nursing personnel. We suggest that you attach the bracelet onto your car keys so that you are ensured that it is on your person at all times. Failure to show the bracelet will prevent you from having access to your child. Upon discharge, you will be requested to return the bracelet to the unit manager of the paediatric ward.

This safety measure is strictly implemented to provide you peace-of-mind that your child's safety and security is a priority to us.

Visiting hours for parents / legal guardians
If your child is admitted into a multiple bedded room, you will be allowed to visit your child from 7:00 to 22:00. Thereafter, we will request that you put your child to sleep and leave the ward. We recommend that you make use of this time away from your child (i.e., 21:59 to 6:59) to rest and look after yourself.

Please be aware that you may be asked to leave your child's bedside so that nursing care and / or other healthcare procedures may take place. We ask that you assist us in this as it can be very traumatic if your child sees you upset or traumatised by what is happening.

Naptime occurs daily in the paediatric ward between 13:00 to 15:00. During this time, the lights are switched off to allow your child to sleep soundly.

Visiting hours for family and friends
