To further promote family-centered care, family-centered rounds are conducted on many units. During family-centered rounds, parents are invited to listen to the healthcare team discuss their child’s care plan, share any recent observations of their child that concern them, and ask questions about their child’s care. Since there is limited time during rounds, parents can request a meeting with the doctors later in the day to discuss their child’s care plan in more detail.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to be a part of the care plan for their child. If you would like to participate in family-centered rounds, let your child’s nurse know each day.
