Join MUSC’s Child Life team for a special Teddy Bear Clinic! Bring your favorite stuffed friend (or one will be provided). Come and dress up as a health care worker and treat your “patient” with the best care possible. We will check vital signs and perform minor procedures, create x-rays and decorate our very own hospital badge.
Hospital and medical experiences can be upsetting for children and may interfere with normal childhood activities. Through the use of play, education and support, Child Life Specialists work to minimize stress and to help children, adolescents and their families cope with healthcare encounters. MUSC Children’s Health Child Life Department is available to support patients and their families before and during hospital visits.
For more information, call the Child Life Department at 843-792-7064. This event is included with CML Membership or admission.
