Hospital ordinary admissions

Stampa Pagina

Emergency admission to the Hospital is through the Emergency Department of the Bambino Gesù in Rome (Gianicolo), or in Palidoro, whereas, for elective inpatient care, admissions are scheduled by the medical personnel of the reference ward. 

For programmed admissions, patients will have to show up at the ward where admission has been scheduled bringing their healthcare book (libretto sanitario), and all medical documentation relevant to previous appointments or diagnostic investigations. Upon patients' arrival at the Ward, the medical personnel starts the compilation of the clinical record. Afterwards, in order to process the administrative procedure, parents will have to go to the check-in office for programmed admissions (Ufficio Accettazione Ricoveri Programmati), located at the first floor in the building facing the Salviati Building (former blood drawing station).

At the check-in office, parents can request:
- The hospital admission certificate (during the child's stay in the hospital);
- The hospitalization certificate (upon discharge).

Access to the wards
One of the two parents can stay with the child during their hospital stay. Chief nurses of all wards will give all necessary information on accommodation arrangements in the wards.

The only wards where parents are not allowed to permanently stay are the intensive care units (ICUs). Parents can however see their children, wearing appropriate sterile clothing, during visiting times. 

Families and friends can visit patients during visiting times, which are communicated upon admission. In order to protect privacy and tranquility of patients, as well as compliance to sanitary regulations, it is important to strictly respect visiting times.

During the hospital stay, physicians of the different wards are available every day, at fixed times, to meet parents and give all information on the course of the child's treatment. Upon discharge, the ward physician will ask parents to sign the child's clinical record containing all information on the patient's therapies and medications.

Accommodation for nursing mothers
Nursing mothers, whose child is in the hospital, and who are not based in Rome can be accommodated for the night in the guesthouse for nursing mothers, a small hostel with kitchen and three bedrooms, each with three beds and a bathroom.

The house for nursing mothers is located at the underground floor of Building Pio XII.

To use this service, you should ask the Chief Nurse of the ward where your child is staying, or at the reception desk of the Social Services.
