Patient & Visitor InformationContact Us
  • Arriving at the Hospital

  • Some of our patients come to the hospital from:

    • Their doctor's office
    • The emergency department
    • Scheduled surgery

    If your child requires hospitalization you will be directed to the registration area where a brief interview will be completed to prepare your child for his or her admission.

    An identification band will be placed on your child and your family will be escorted to the pediatric unit. A staff nurse will greet you and your child in your child's room.

    Room assignment is determined by the medical needs, age and sex of each patient. Color television and telephones are provided free of charge for all pediatric patients.

    If your child has been recently exposed to a contagious disease, such as chicken pox, measles or mumps, it is important to let your doctor and nurses know as soon as possible. It is important to protect your child as well as the other children in the hospital from contagious illnesses.

     

    Remember, if you have any questions concerning your child's hospitalization please feel free to ask your pediatrician or one of the pediatric nurses. For more information about pediatric services at Newport Hospital, please call 401-845-1710.
