Relieving the Stress of Pediatric Care

A pro bono multimedia project brings comfort to the ED

Children cope better when they know in advance what to expect and what is expected of them and this video gives the children and families a glimpse into the pediatric Emergency Department environment – where they will go, who they will meet and what they will do. It is a wonderful way for us and specifically Wendy, to welcome the patients to the Emergency Department and to prepare them for their visit.
