Psychiatry Inpatient Service
During the week, children on Bader 5 at Boston Children's Hospital have a structured day. Their schedule provides time for school, groups and individual and family therapy. Special arrangements for visiting can be made to accommodate parents' schedules or to coordinate a visit with a planned family meeting.
|6:30 a.m. - 8 a.m.||Wake up. Monitor vital signs. Get ready for the day.|
|8 a.m. - 9 a.m.||Breakfast. Community meeting to review goals and plan for the day.|
|9 a.m. - 12 p.m.||School. (There is a short break at 10 a.m.)|
|12 p.m. - 1 p.m.||Lunch.|
|1 p.m. - 5 p.m.||Therapeutic groups. Individual or family therapy sessions may be scheduled during this time.|

Weekends are less structured to give your child some time to rest after a busy week and to spend more time with family. There are several groups offered between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekends but your child may choose to spend time with family instead of attending groups.
