Description:
Children should only come to hospital when it is really necessary. When children attend hospital, the care and facilities available should be the best that can be provided. Associated with the medical advances in recent decades, increasing numbers of children are admitted to hospital or investigated at out-patients each year. Hospital facilities for children have evolved over the last 50 years usually (with the exception of the children's hospitals) in association with general hospitals dealing mainly with adult patients. As a result, the special needs of children in hospital have sometimes not been appreciated and provided for. As the specialty of paediatrics has developed, it has been increasingly recognised that the care of the child in hospital must encompass the needs of the whole child and not just treatment of the presenting illness. The aim of this document is to briefly outline modem standards for hospital facilities for children with emphasis on the provision of all hospital care for children in a children's hospital or a comprehensive children's department of a general hospital supervised by appropriately trained and experienced staff.
