Accommodations for Children

Most children admitted to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC are in single rooms with beds assigned based on a child’s age and diagnosis.

  • Each child must sleep in his or her own hospital bed or crib to allow nurses to reach him or her easily.
  • In acute care rooms, a sleeping surface is available, enabling two parents to stay with their child overnight.
  • In critical care units, one parent may stay overnight.
  • Vacant hospital beds in double rooms may not be used by parents.
