Sleeping at the Hospital

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

If your child is hospitalized overnight at Boston Children's Hospital, one parent can stay with the child in his or her room. Chairs in most patient rooms fold out into cots, and some rooms have beds built into the window alcoves.

There are showers in each patient room (except for the Intensive Care Units) for parents to use, and lockers and safes may be available where you can secure valuables. Laundry facilities are located on the first floor of the Farley building. The unit provides towels and bed linens, and toiletries can be purchased at the CVS in the main lobby.

Please notify your child's nurse if you would like to stay overnight in your child's room.

Additional sleep spaces and shower facilities are available for parents of patients in the Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit (MICU), Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU).

Sleep spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis for parents of patients in the ICUs. Parents can request a sleep space room or shower access in the Center for Families
