Our outpatient services are now located at our location within Tallaght University Hospital and in our new building. Outpatient services include General Paediatrics (general clinics, condition specific clinics) and Trauma Orthopaedics (fracture clinic).
Inpatient and Day Cases
When you stay with us for one day you are called a day patient (because you come in, get your treatment, stay for a while to recover after your treatment and then go home all in one day.) When you are staying as a patient for more than one day you are called an inpatient.
CHI at Tallaght is offering online video consultations to our patients in a number of our outpatient services
If your Consultants wishes to see you via a Video Consultation you will receive an appointment letter as normal, with the time and date of the appointment

Your Child is An Inpatient
Two parents/guardians (without symptoms of COVID-19) will be issued with Visiting Cards when their child is admitted and must present the cards to gain entry to the hospital. Both parents/guardians are allowed to be with their child at the same time during their hospital stay.
Your Child is Attending our Emergency Department, Outpatients or Day Case Settings
To protect our patients/parents/guardians and staff only one parent/guardian without symptoms of COVID 19 will be allowed to be with their child during their hospital visit/appointment to ED, OPD or Day Care. Unfortunately due to space limitations in these settings, we are unable to facilitate two parents/guardians at the same time.
Exceptions will always be considered as previous, under compassionate or special circumstances.
Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, are a close contact or are awaiting a COVID-19 swab result. All visitors must wear a face mask at all times. Siblings are not able to visit and there is a robust Visitor Card system in place. While we understand that these measures will be difficult for some families, our priority is the safety of all CHI patients, families and staff.
Children 9 years old and over and their parent/guardian should wear a face covering when attending any of CHI's emergency, outpatients, admissions/day ward departments.
Face coverings are not required for children under 9 unless clinically advised.
We look forward to seeing you in CHI at Tallaght
