Hospital Accommodation

Royal Children's Hosptal.

  • On the Ward
    Parents are welcome and encouraged to stay overnight on the ward with their inpatient child. For safety reasons, we can only allow one parent to sleep over each night, and siblings are not permitted to stay. The daybed in each inpatient room becomes a bed at night with sheets, blankets and pillows provided. There is also limited parent accommodation at the hospital on Level 2 (Forest) of the East Building, and an accommodation fee is charged for these rooms.
