Visiting a patient

The healing process is enhanced by the support of family and friends. All visitors must check in at the reception desk in the hospital lobby where they will be given a visitor’s badge.

Parents/guardians or their representatives (if the parent/guardian is absent) may visit 24 hours a day. Family members are welcome to call patients, but please avoid calling after bedtime to minimize disruption of the child’s schedule.

Throughout a visit, a parent or a responsible adult visitor must supervise sibling/child visitors. All visitors should be healthy. Visitors who are coughing should ask for a mask or refrain from visiting.

Gifts and cards

Children and young adults love to receive gifts. Thanks to many Shriners and friends of Shriners Hospitals for Children, each patient usually receives a donated gift after surgery, as well as during holidays and on their birthday (if this occurs during their stay).

Friends or relatives who wish to send additional gifts, cards or flowers can send them to:

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Spokane
Attn: Patient Name
911 West 5th Ave.
Spokane, WA 99204

We suggest that you refrain from sending expensive gifts or gifts of money, as the hospital accepts no responsibility for loss or damage. Bulletin boards are available to mount cards, posters, etc., in each patient room.

Because latex balloons can cause choking and an allergic response, they are not allowed in the hospital. Mylar balloons are allowed.
