Checklist for parents/guardians

When your child comes to us for a planned stay there are several things you should bring. Please help us and think of:

  • hospital admission (for stationary and day-clinic treatments)
  • referral (for ambulatory treatments)
  • insurance card
  • the yellow prophylaxis booklet
  • vaccination card
  • medical reports
  • X-rays
  • medications
  • pyjamas
  • personal clothes
  • favourite toys and books

Generally, we appreciate if your child gets presents from visitors. Nevertheless, in some cases these presents can have a negative impact on the healing process — for example sweets or other food products. Please contact the doctor in charge whenever you feel unsure.
