Family members and friends are welcome to visit with patients at Hasbro Children's Hospital.
Regular visiting hours are from 2 to 8 p.m. daily, including weekends and holidays. Visitors must pick up a visitor's pass at the information desk. Four visitors, including parents, are allowed in the room at a time.
An adult must accompany any children under the age of 16, and should also be prepared to provide the children's immunization records and disease exposure information if requested. If bringing siblings under age 16, please coordinate a visit with your child's nurse or child care specialist. Siblings may not stay overnight.
Visiting hours and policies may vary, depending on the care your child needs. Please check with your child's nurse for details. Visitors should call the hospital's patient information line at 401-444-5421 to confirm visiting hours for patients who are critically ill.
When children are in our pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) there is usually a limit of two visitors at any given time. If you have any questions, please see your child's nurse. More about PICU guidelines for visitors
