Information about the ward your child will be transferred to can be found on BC Children’s Hospital website at www.bcchildrens.ca or you can ask for the information to be printed for you.
Based on needs and availability, your child may be in a single, double or quadruple room. There is usually a chairbed or cot for one family member to sleep at the bedside. We encourage a parent to stay with the child overnight when they are transferred to the ward.
On the ward, you and your child can begin to assume more of your regular routine.
If you would like a tour of the ward, please ask the charge nurse to arrange this.
To contact the ward your child is being transferred to, please call 604-875-2345 and request your call to be transferred to the specific ward.
If your child needs physiotherapy, occupational therapy, or other, these services will be provided on the ward.
