Providing Meaningful Interactions During a Pandemic- Child Life
Honoring The Child Life Team at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma, Washington
In the midst of significant changes in our hospital and around the world, our Child Life team has been working to do what they do best: adapting to the needs of kids, families, and all of our hardworking multidisciplinary team members. While being mindful of PPE resources, our team has been creatively assessing and supporting patients to help reduce stress and anxiety for kids and their families at Mary Bridge Children’s. There’s no “one-size-fits all” method to accomplishing this, but Child Life is utilizing our developmental expertise and ability to be flexible to continue to provide meaningful interactions with kids in a variety of ways.
