Psychiatry Inpatient Service
The physical structure of the Bader 5 unit at Boston Children's Hospital resembles a "T" with the entrance to the unit at the "foot" of the T.
When you enter the unit, the nursing station is directly in front of you at the end of the hall. Generally, younger children's rooms are in the main hallway, adolescents' rooms are in the hallway to the left of the nursing station and group rooms, offices and conference rooms are to the right of the nursing station.
There are a few single rooms that are used in special circumstances but children and adolescents usually have one or two roommates. There is one washer and dryer on the unit but many parents choose to do their child's laundry at home.
