Why use the Walli-Kids products in Pediatric care: waiting rooms, treatment rooms, ER…?
In a medical environment and even more in hospitals, kids are often stressed and anxious as everything is new, overwhelming and most often, they cannot relate. They usually have only one goal they can express: “Go Home”.
In this type of environment they are not who they typically are: dynamic, playful and happy… They need something, somewhere that will catch their eye and attention as they are very inquisitive.
What if there was a large, colorful and playful poster in the waiting room or in the ER to distract young patients, to help alleviate their stress and anxiety?
Would that help young patients and often their parents to feel a little more at ease by triggering a focus game?
Would that help with the waiting time process?
Would they feel less wound up when finally meeting the physician?
Would that help the child life specialist distracting scared children from treatments?
Why pediatric doctors and dentists should use
Frankly, doctor’s waiting room was a place I did not like to go to because of the waiting time and the constant noise. When I had a chance to get prepared, I often had books in my bag and we used the waiting time to read, count or do story telling. It was easier on my kids and myself, and as an extra bonus, time went by quickly.
Unfortunately, nowadays, kids and parents are riveted to their mobile phone and there is much less bonding or connection between child and parent or sibling in waiting rooms.
One thing has not changed, though, the kids’ attitude when entering the waiting room.
Unless they are too tired to leave their parents’ comforting laps, young children are still very inquisitive, checking everything, everywhere. They will try to find something, anything of interest… but as doctors are more and more hesitant to keep toys within those little hands reach because of germs, there is no much to do…
So when there is no cell phone handy, young patients are more cranky and difficult in the waiting room.
Walli-Kids’ goal is to help by providing a colorful, playful and fun decoration to put on the walls to keep children busy while waiting to see the nurse, and the doctor.
Imagine a large, colorful and playful wall decoration for everyone to see upon entering your waiting room!
As color and art influence patients’ state of mind, this place might be quieter as children will be focus helping Mitch the Fish find his friends. (from our Animal Buddies Collection).
Would that show to parents you care for the wellbeing of your little patients and choose carefully the decoration and the activity they can play?
Would that say you value the children’s development progression and choose appropriate activities for your waiting and treatment room?
I seriously believe if would set your practice apart from many others…
