Change is in store for Children’s Hospitals

I found this wonderful article by the Wall Street Journal that I thought I’d share with you this week. It talks about how children’s hospitals having been hard at work making their facilities more family-centered and fun to be in. I love how they talk about the benefits of creating a hospital environment that is more inviting, less scary, as well as helping families to become more involved in the care of their children. I also like the pictures they show to give readers a visual of the changes they are making, and also a video to watch about the changes. There are a bunch of great points made in this article, like how it’s important to get feedback from families and making it easier for them to have privacy. They even talk about what kind of impact this might make on budgets, which I think is important to consider. Anyways, if you’re interested, here’s the link to check it out!
