New program at NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi helping kids cope through accidents, injuries
A hospital room can be scary and overwhelming for children who have experienced an accident or injury. Now, the staff at NYC Health + Hospitals are working to make it less frightening.
Heidi Matias and her colleagues, part of the pediatric trauma team at the hospital, developed a program that gives students an inside look at a hospital room.
The program is offered to students almost anywhere thanks to virtual platforms.
News 12’s Alexa Farrell gives us an inside look at how the team and the program are helping these students.
