Admission and stay

During treatment, it may be necessary for your child to be admitted to one of the care departments for one or more days. This page has information about the preparations you can make and about the stay in our center.

When admitted, your child will stay in a parent-child room. This room consists of a child section and a parent section, connected by a large sliding door which can be opened or closed as you wish. You can choose whether to create one large room or separate places for child and parents. In the parent section, you will find your bed, a second folding bed if necessary and your own shower and toilet. In the special isolation rooms, including the stem cell transplant department, the flexible wall has been replaced by a large window, allowing you to see each other.

The lower bed can be placed in your child's room. The other furniture can also be moved, such as the table and the large lazy chair. The latter is tiltable and easy to move from one room to another. Each parent-child room also has access to a balcony.

What to take with you?
Take the following items with for your child:

  • Clothing (outerwear, underwear, pajamas, slippers)
  • Toys, book, fluffy toy
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and a brush)
You will also need:
  • notification of admission
  • insurance papers
  • vaccination papers
  • dietary requirements if applicable
  • list of medication

For yourself, it is useful to bring extra clothing, a towel, toiletries and a book or magazine. Leave valuable items like jewelry and money at home.

Facilities
On the 2nd and 3rd floor, there is a dining-living room with a kitchen where you can prepare meals for yourself and the family. There are also various play and relaxation rooms in our center such as the Construction Site and Teen Lounge. You can read more about the various facilities at our center under practical information.

Food and drinks
Our Food and Drinks hostess brings the Kanjerkar around 6x a day. This is a buffet car with a fixed assortment of bread, spreads, dairy and fruit, and three special dishes per meal. You can go to her with all your questions about food and drinks. Parents can also use the Kanjerkar for a fee. The dishes of the Kanjerkar are also available in the restaurant. If the hostess is not present and your child wants something to eat or drink, talk to the nurse about the possibilities.

For coffee or tea, you can always go to the pantry or the dining-living room. You can read more information about this in the welcome folder in the room.

You can also use the restaurant or the espresso bar. Read more about these and other facilities on this page.
