During your stay

Our staff are dedicated to providing your child with the highest quality specialist care and service from preadmission through to discharge.

Spacious single and sibling rooms

The majority of our rooms are large single rooms which include an ensuite and a day bed for a parent or carer to stay overnight. Each room has a telephone, television, security safe and mini-fridge.

We also provide sibling (double) rooms, with the ensuite facility adjacent to the room.

Children’s entertainment

Being stuck in a bed all day can get very boring for a child, which is why Mater Children’s Private Brisbane has a range of exciting indoor and outdoor children's entertainment to enjoy. 

Your child can enjoy a range of entertainment options and access important patient information with MyMater Bedside. This personalised touchscreen device provides access to TV, radio, relaxation music and games, as well as educational health information.  Streaming services such as Netflix, Stan and SBS On Demand are also available. Parents and guardians are responsible for deciding which content their child can view or access on MyMater Bedside. If you require assistance with the device, please ask a member of the care team. 

Parent’s lounge and kitchenette

Our parent’s lounge provides a space for you to have a coffee, read a magazine, or talk with one of our volunteers and other parents. It is located close to our Day Unit on level 5, so you are never far from your child while they are in surgery.

There is also a parent or guardian kitchenette overlooking the children’s playground on level 7 as part of the inpatient ward so you can enjoy a hot cup of tea while watching your child play. It is important to take a moment for yourself, so you are best prepared to support the needs of your child.

Giving informed consent

You will be asked to acknowledge your understanding of, and give your informed consent to, tests, therapies or other procedures required for your care. If you have any questions or concerns about your treatment or consent, please speak to the doctors and nurses caring for your child.
