Our expert team of board certified pediatric doctors, nurses, and support staff provide compassionate age-appropriate care, while keeping you informed and involved.
One unique aspect to our Pediatric Unit is the treatment room for children. A treatment room is one of the most important rooms on a pediatric unit because it helps keep the bedside a safe place for our Pediatric patients. Our treatment room has colorful, joyful walls and a coping kit that includes diversion/distraction tools to help with non-pharmacological pain management. Additionally, we encourage "Positioning for Comfort" in the treatment room, which allows children to feel secure in their parents' arms as opposed to being restrained.
A child’s hospitalization can often be quite frightening. For many of our pediatric patients here at California Hospital Medical Center, this is their first time being in the hospital. Our hospital addresses the special needs of Pediatric patients, ensuring that we provide developmentally-appropriate care to children. Part of this care includes an environment that is child-friendly, comforting, and happy.
