The average number of patients receiving ultrasound therapy in the Physiotherapy Department has doubled with the addition of a new ultrasound machine, thanks to Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant. Ultrasound therapy is given to patients before an operation to improve surgical outcomes, and after an operation to reduce scarring, improve mobility and reduce pain.
Any time our children are sick or injured, it can be a stressful time. Visits to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre can also be scary for the children themselves, whether they are staying overnight in our Paediatric Inpatient Unit, or if they are have tests or procedures done at Paediatric Outpatient Services.
The Paediatric Team does everything we can to make your child’s visit a positive experience for them – and for you. We have a Child Life Specialist on staff to help children understand and process why they are here, and to help them keep their minds occupied with games, activities, and toys. If your child needs assistance with adjusting to hospitalization or preparing for a test or procedure, a Child Life Specialist can assess and offer assistance with preparing your child.
There are things you can do to help, too. The following are suggestions to help you prepare your child for a visit to the Health Sciences Centre:
