Paediatric UnitThere are many reasons why children are admitted to the Paediatric Unit at Darwin Private Hospital and it can seem a very strange and frightening environment.
Our medical and nursing staff are there to help through this time and are only too pleased to answer any questions or concerns.
The unit is staffed 24 hours a day by nurses with paediatric experience and we can provide care for children from one month to 12 years, with specialised equipment so that children are in the safest care possible.
Next door to the four-patient ward is a fun, inviting family room with a comfortable lounge, big TV, toys and a colouring-in table. A fenced play area on the balcony enables children to go outside to play or relax in a safe environment.
Parents/carers are encouraged to stay with their child at all times.
Visiting hours are between 3pm-8pm and outside of these times is restricted to parents and carers only.
Our paediatric ward boasts it’s own kids’ menu and we have a skilled team of kitchen staff who can cater to all dietary requirements.
Meals are provided for your child and one carer.
