Hospital staff create displays to help children during these usual times

1 Mins read

Hospital staff at Antrim Area Hospital have created displays and resources to help children during these unusual times.

A spokesperson for Antrim Area Hospital said “Staff have made the ward bright and colourful by painting rainbows and butterflies on the windows of the bays and side rooms and encouraging children to join in by painting their own rainbows for display. Additionally, they made activity books for children, teens and also adults who may be spending some time on the ward, to offer some distraction.

A child-friendly book that explains Coronavirus is also available.

Visual posters present in the ward show staff wearing PPE which helps explain why Nurses and Doctors will be wearing masks, gloves and aprons.

Creating a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and preparing the children, reduces any fears or anxieties they may have. It helps them understand that this is all to keep them safe.”
