The NICU Parent Book provides valuable information that walks new parents through their NICU journey. It provides suggestions for ways that parents can take care of their baby while they are in the NICU and gives them the tools for what to expect after being discharged from Bronson.
The relaxation mirrored bubble tube rover provides multiple sensory options to help distract children by providing them with something calming and interesting to focus on. These options include a projector on top of the machine with hundreds of slide show images to choose from, soothing music, bubbles, and fiber optics.
The rover is a great asset for surgical pediatric patients to ease them from their anesthesia or sedation. It is also an asset for our pediatric special needs patients as well as for our pediatric patients in Outpatient Testing, Rehab and the Emergency Department.
Camp Bronson is a place in Bronson Children's Hospital where a child can play, dream and explore. With the fun camp theme, it allows a child to have a comforting distraction from the hospital setting.
Surgery animals are provided to every child who undergoes a surgery at Bronson. These fluffy friends comfort children before and after their treatment. They are also a fun distraction from all the happenings of the hospital. When they are discharged, their new friend goes home with them.
