Patient Resources

Family-centered care is especially important in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). 

Parents are permitted and encouraged to stay with their children in the PICU 24 hours a day. Reclining chairs are in the patient rooms and a parent respite room is equipped with showers, vending machines and basic services.

Communication is the core of family-centered care and the PICU invites parents to join physician rounds to learn more about the care plan and their child's progress. Parents are welcome to talk with their child's attending physicians, nurses and other health professionals at any time.

Child Life Services Specialists also are available to PICU patients and families.

Stony Brook Children's Services is offering Telehealth services which will allow our patients to receive our high-quality care from the safety and privacy of their home.
