A child's impressions of hospitalization /

The research problem in this qualitative, pilot study explores a child's impressions of hospitalization while in hospital. / Nine children who were in-patients on a pediatric unit of an acute care hospital were interviewed using a semi-structured, self-constructed questionnaire. / The principal finding indicates that these children experienced a neutral emotional response to their hospitalization. Although the subjects were chosen randomly, all children resided in two parent families. This may be a significant factor in enhancing their ability to master hospitalization. Second, their neutral impression of hospitalization may be based on receiving a reasonable level of health care in a child centred environment with support from family.
