Nan, thanks for taking the time to reply to my question, our hosp. allows 4 incidents a yr. Meaning that you can take off 1 day or up to however many needed as long as it doesnt occur over 4 times in a yr. As a mother of 4, I sometimes have trouble leaving my children when they are ill, and would like to see this increased or have our staff offered child care for our children for this reason. Thank you again,

If children are sick, our hospital allows us to use the "parent helper" program in pediatrics. Employees can bring their sick child to peds, along with any meds and they are given a room and meals while the employee works...nurses check on child, give meds as needed, etc. This is free for employees and can be used as long as peds has the room.
