It's without much doubt that children do not enjoy doctor or hospital visits, receiving shots, or any other medical procedure. In fact, in some kids, these visits and procedures cause a lot fear and anxiety. To make the experience less distressing for children, nurses at The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai in Baltimore have implemented distraction stations with their pediatric patients. These movable stations provide age appropriate activities, soothing music or even aromatherapy to create a more playful and enjoyable atmosphere for patients.
