At Rhode Island Hospital and its Hasbro Children's Hospital, our young patients receive the highest quality medical care. Our staff is dedicated to keeping our patients safe while they are getting well. We also believe that the continuum of care does not end when patients leave the hospital. Many our programs have been designed to help patients and their families lead safe, more fulfilling and healthier lives when they leave the hospital and return to their homes, schools and communities.
Patients in a hospital are in a unique situation. They are away from the comforts of home. It may be hard to sleep or concentrate. A patient's state of mind is almost always improved by seeing friends or family members. Here are some things to remember when visiting a hospital.
Hand hygiene is of the utmost importance at a hospital. Hospitals have high concentrations of very ill people, those with compromised immune systems, the very young and the very old. Washing your hands is one of the most basic defenses against the spread of germs and bacteria.
Hasbro Children's Hospital has the first and only Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machine in Rhode Island to treat situations such as under-developed lungs and near-drowning.
