Single and shared accommodation for young patients in hospital.

Author information

  • 1University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.


This study explores the suitability of 100 per cent single room occupancy for children and young people admitted to hospital in terms of their safety, socialisation and development, and demands on the workforce. A literature search, a sabbatical at Boston Children's Hospital in the United States by the author and surveys of health professionals, children and young people have shown that shared rooms should remain available.
