Daisy Ward - E512

About us

Daisy Ward is located on Level 5 of the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (Green Floor). It is ward with two sides and two specialities.

A side is the paediatric High Dependency Unit (HDU) for burns and surgical patients. We care for children aged 0-17 who come here as planned admissions. These patients come from the children's emergency departmentor the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU). There are 6 beds in the HDU and space for one parent to stay overnight with each child.

B side is the paediatric burns ward. Here we care for children aged 0-16 who come in as planned admissions. They may arrive from our HDU, across the South West  or via referral by our clinic and burns outreach team. There are 4 cubicles on B side and space for one parent to stay with each child.


Philosophy of the Ward

Length of stay can vary from patient to patient. We aim to provide the highest standard of nursing care by working together as a team using a multi-disciplinary approach. We recognise the importance of patient-centred care, individualising our care to the needs of each patient and their families.

Parent and Patient Facilities

Our parents' kitchen is situated next to Bluebell and Sunflower wards on level 5. There is a microwave, fridge, freezer and hot drink facilities. Our cubicles on B side all have en-suites. For parents of children on A side the toilets are situated by the lifts on level 5.

Play Facilities

Our play team work hard to create a fun environment for the children and our play room is open to all patients. It is situated on B side. Everyone is welcome to play but we ask that all children are supervised by an adult whilst in the play room. We encourage families to take toys and crafts into children's rooms if they aren't well enough to visit the play room. We have sensory lights which provide great distraction during treatments; these are especially enjoyable for our babies and patients with complex needs.  

Day in the Life

I am a toddler on Daisy Ward. I wake up for my breakfast which Mummy has chosen for me. Some days I will have a bath in the morning with lots of bubbles and toys. I will have my dressings changed under the bubble lights while listening to relaxing music. I like to go to the play room to say hello to the play ladies and see what toys I can play with. I try my best to eat my lunch and dinner, but if I can't manage it I will have some milk down my tube. Sometimes my physiotherapist will come and see me to make sure I am moving everything as I should. I enjoy going for a walk with my Mummy and Daddy in the afternoon and seeing what is happening in the play centre. When I'm ready for bed, my nurse will get me a bottle of milk ready for my sleep. My Mummy sleeps in a bed next to mine in the night so she can comfort me if I wake up.
