My Emergency Department Scrapbook™ is now complete!!! Kosair Children's Hospital (Louisville, KY) assisted us on expanding our line of scrapbooks. This new 20 page resource can help children cope with the experience of being admitted in the Emergency Department.
Listen to what hospitals are saying about the new book. Primed with pages specifically targeted toward the ED, My Emergency DepartmentScrapbook™ includes stickers, activities and educational tidbits to help patients and their families better cope with the ED visit.
“Time in the emergency department can be extremely frightening and confusing to patients and their siblings. Because of strict infection control precautions, we are unable to keep toys for them to interact with in the waiting areas or treatment rooms. Consequently, with nothing to distract them, time seems to pass even more slowly and the children’s anxiety, and sometimes even their level of pain, increases.
The Medical Memories Scrapbook helps alleviate some of the stress and anxiety. They have both valuable information to help children understand what is happening and interesting activities to help keep their minds busy. And, unlike the ubiquitous coloring books usually used in EDs, many of the activities in The Emergency Department Scrapbook are sophisticated enough to interest older school-age children".
Robyn Hart – Director, Child Life - Rush Children’s Hospital, Chicago IL

Missy Drake - Child Life Specialist - Kosair Children's Hospital, Louisville KY
