This film shows how the staff of a British hospital has improvised a method of routinely admitting the mothers of patients under school age to a ward of traditional design without structural alterations. We are shown that ordinary mothers, when given a positive role in the care of their sick children, are generally as adequate in the ward as in their own homes. The film follows the experience of Sally, aged 20 months, and her mother as well as other mothers in residence and shows how adequately this method of care meets the emotional needs of the young child, contributes to the mother's high morale, and enriches the experience of the staff. The fact that this method has its own problems is not overlooked. This film was shot at Amersham General Hospital.
