| Bay Area Hospital’s pediatric department recognizes the unique needs of children
and families and strives to provide
the best care possible.
Having a sick or hospitalized child is scary for any parent. Bay Area Hospital’s pediatric department recognizes the unique needs of children and families and strives to provide the best care possible. We encourage parents to be involved in their child’s care and offer sleeper chairs, bedding and showers so parents can stay at their child’s bedside. If your child is exclusively breastfeeding, a meal tray will be provided to you free of charge. Registered Nurses caring for your child are PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support)-certified.
Family-centered care at Bay Area Hospital
Upon arrival, your nurse will begin a family-centered care plan that includes pediatric safety precautions. Our unit is protected with an electronic security system to prevent child abduction. To make your child feel at home, our rooms include kid-friendly décor. Children’s movies and games are available.
In addition to generalized medical and surgical services, the pediatric department also has a pediatric diabetes program and a “safe room” for pediatric behavioral health patients until they can be transferred for treatment.
