FC: Joey's Accident
1: Hi! I'm Joey and this is my tree house. My dad built it for me. I like to play in my tree house.
2: I have to climb up a ladder to get inside. My mom says to be careful because it's high.
3: One night, there was a rain storm. The next day, the ladder was wet .
4: When I climbed up the ladder, I slipped and fell down! I started to cry because my arm hurt really bad.
5: My mom had to use the phone to call 9-1-1 so I could go to the hospital. I was a little scared.
6: Mom said that doctors were going to come and pick me up from my house with a car called an ambulance.
8: The ambulance had flashing lights and made a really loud noise. "Wee-ooo! Wee-ooo!" One time I saw an ambulance in a parade, so I already knew what it was going to look like. My mom got to come with me, in the ambulance, when it took me to the hospital.
10: When we got to the hospital, I had to wait while my mom filled out lots of papers. There were toys in the waiting room, but my arm hurt too bad to play so I read a Lego book.
13: When the doctors came to get me, I had to go to a special room to get an x-ray. I thought the machine looked a little scary, but I had to hold very still so the machine could take a picture of the bones in my arm.
14: This is a picture of my x-ray. The doctors told me I broke my arm in two spots.
15: Since I broke my arm I have to wear a hard cast for a while. My arm doesn't hurt as bad with the cast on and it's going to help my arm heal. | I got to pick the color I wanted. My classmates signed it too!
16: Soon enough, my arm is going to be all better and I will be able to play in my tree house again. I will just be more careful next time!
18: Lesson Plan Grade Level: This particular book- 1st- 3rd grade. Activity- any grade level. Objectives: -Patients should be able to identify key events in a traumatic or personal experience relating to a hospital or doctor visit. -Children are to correctly place events in chronological order. -Patients should identify a stressful situation and express feelings that related to that experience. Activity Patients are to make a story book or scrapbook using the Mixbook or relatively similar website to illustrate a personal experience relating to the hospital or doctor's office. This activity can be done after the initial visit at home with parents, at a follow up appointment with parents and staff (Child Life Specialists), or in the hospital if held overnight for long term care.
19: Activity (cont.) With the help of an adult (if child is at a young age) or individually, the child will be able to use pictures from the Internet or personal photos to create a story to be shared with parents, siblings, classmates and friends. Goal By doing this activity, patients are able to express and identify key emotions they experience during a visit to an uncomfortable place such as: a hospital or doctor's office. While it is difficult for children to use words to express emotions in some cases, having the option of pictures can make it easier. By sharing a personal experience, patients can directly relate and reflect on specific situations. It allows for parents, siblings, classmates and friends as well as the Child Life Specialist, to understand the stressful components to a child's visit and address those in an appropriate manner.
