Visiting is a very important to a patient; it is often the highlight of their day. Nothing is more reassuring than a visit from family and friends. Newport Hospital also offers a Rooming-In Program for parents and guardians.
We wish to do everything possible to minimize both your child's and your concerns about his or her hospitalization. We offer a rooming-in program that encourages either a parent or legal guardian to remain with the child for a portion of or the entire hospital stay. It also allows for active participation by parents in the child's physical and emotional care.
Parents are encouraged to assist with certain procedures, such as feeding, bathing and diapering. Parents and guardians are welcome to participate either in a portion or all of their child's stay.
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.
