We are thrilled to see continued exposure of our video project “You are Here: Wendy’s Welcome to the ED”. Over the past several months we’ve had the great privilege of working with Darcy Daniels, her daughter Wendy Wooden and MGH for Children (MGHfC) on this project, which aims to alleviate patient stress in the pediatric Emergency Department. The project was showcased in the Healthcare Design Magazine as they spoke with Payette Associate Principal Stuart Baur.
Stuart Baur knew Darcy and heard about the situation. Baur reached out to coworkers at Payette, and more than 20 people stepped up to volunteer more than 1,500 hours over 10 months to turn Wendy’s story into a short cartoon that walks kids through the ED, being admitted and heading home. Stuart explains in the article that, “It’s a well understood phenomenon that the reduction of stress and the provision of positive distractions have a direct, favorable and measurable effect on the length of patient stays and the overall outcomes experienced by pediatric patients.”
