Hospitalization is a common occurrence in childhood. The behaviour of most children is affected during and/or after hospitalization. This annotation lists factors that have been found to be associated with adverse behavioural outcomes as a result of hospitalization. Ways in which these behavioural effects may be minimized are discussed, concluding with an indication of areas for further research.
