"No more than six visitors at a time!"
Madam Pomfrey's strict rules for the Hospital Wing[src]

The Hospital Wing[2][3] was a part of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was run by Madam Poppy Pomfrey, the school's matron, from at least 1971.[1]

The students and staff who suffered mishaps and injuries during the school year, were sent or brought to the hospital wing for treatment. Poppy would prefer there be six visitors at one time for one person.[1][4] There was a room adjacent belonging to the matron.[5]

The hospital wing was well equipped to deal with all kinds of magical and mundane injuries, from broken limbs to regrowing lost bones.[6] Only in the most severe cases were the patients sent to St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries for further treatment, such as when Katie Bell touched a cursed Opal Necklace in 1996.[7][8]

Overview

The hospital wing in 1992

Located on the first floor, and later one or two floors up, the hospital wing was where Hogwarts residents go to have their medical needs met.[1][6] Within the hospital wing were many rows of beds with white sheets, privacy screens, and bedpans,[1][6] which Ronald Weasley once had to scrub as the result of a detention from Professor Snape.[9] The entrance had double doors. Madam Pomfrey's office was part of the hospital wing complex.[5]

Injuries treated in the Hospital Wing

Madam Pomfrey: "You should have come straight to me! I can mend bones in a second — but growing them back —"
Harry Potter: "You will be able to, won't you?"
Madam Pomfrey: "I'll be able to, certainly, but it will be painful. You'll have to stay the night..."
