We offer leading-edge medical technology and treatment and attract some of the best medical personnel from around the country and house them all in a friendly environment designed especially for children. Although we use the term “parents” throughout this guide, we do realize that caregivers come with many names: grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, sister, brother, cousin and friend. No matter what your child calls you, we understand how important each and every one of you is in the life of your child.
Please use the information below as a reference to vital information you may need during and after your visit.
As parents or caregivers, you are important members of the team that care for your child. Our family-centered care can help relieve your child's fears and often helps speed recovery. It may also help ease the stress felt by parents and siblings. You should continue regular routines such as brushing your child's teeth and hair while your child is in the medical center. When it is appropriate, you also are encouraged to participate in the treatment of your child. This is particularly important for parents who will provide treatment for chronically ill children at home. Ask your nurse or physician how you can help.
Safety during your stay:
Because kids aren't grownups they have very unique needs. The Cook Children's Northeast Hospital health care team is made of a pediatric caregivers who are committed to the health of well-being of all children. During your child's hospital stay, a charge nurse and team leader oversees the activities on your child's floor. Your physicians work primarily with nurses. Other medical professionals include therapists, technologists, lab personnel, nutritionists and specially trained clinicians.
Cook Children’s Northeast Hospital understands the importance of explaining procedures in a way children understand. We have a Child Life specialist who helps patients deal with medical procedures by teaching them coping skills and providing play scenarios.
Admission counselors help families with financial assistance and payments. An admission counselor can explain insurance benefits.
For patients whose diseases or conditions allow them to continue recovery or rehabilitation at home, Cook Children's Home Health can provide an alternative to hospital care. At home, children receive family and caregiver support that assists recovery. Research has found that children who require long-term care usually feel better when treated in the familiar surroundings of home. In addition, home health services cost significantly less than hospital care.
