The High Dependency Unit is located on the Oak Ward. It is a three bedded Unit that caters for children that require special nursing and medical care. Here your child will be observed 24 hours a day and generally attached to monitors to record heart rate, breathing, blood pressure etc. Your nurse will explain all these monitors to you on your admission.
We ask you not to have your mobile phones turned on in this Unit as they interfere with our monitoring equipment.
Parents have no restrictions with regard to visiting however visiting restrictions generally apply to relatives and friends. Your nurse will explain these to you as they relate to your child.
For Health and Safety reasons No Hot Drinks are allowed on the ward and Unit, however we have a parents tea room nearby. Parents have also full use of the staff canteen.
