Preparing your Child for Hospital

by Jemma (follow)
A visit to a hospital is a big event in a childís life, even if itís only for a day procedure. Here are some tips and recommendations to help make it a smooth experience for everyone.



1. Preparation at home

A few days before the big day, talk to your child truthfully about why theyíre going into hospital. This will give them time to understand whatís happening, and also give them the opportunity to ask any questions in advance. Let them get involved by asking them to pick out a pair of pyjamas to pack in their bag of choice.

2. What to bring

Itís important to help make your child feel comfortable in what can potentially be a stressful situation. Pack their favourite toy, blanket, drink bottle and movie to ensure that they have those home comforts around them.

3. During your stay

Tests and procedures may be on the agenda, but itís ok to balance the day out with cuddles and playtime too. If theyíre well enough to be kept occupied with bed-rest activities, they will appreciate being encouraged to do so.

4. Going back home

Once your child leaves the hospital, itís not unusual for them to show different behaviours. Stick to your usual routines and give them some time, patience and understanding. Your child will soon return to their normal self.
