BLMs and those who have had critically ill children in the hospital:
I need your suggestions!
We are starting the process of getting memory boxes together for Children's Hospital and comfort kits for families in the PICU. We have come up with several good ideas but are still looking for some more.
Memory Boxes: What gave you the most comfort? What would you have liked to have? Did you do anything unique to preserve your child's memory? If you received grief information- what did you get? Was it helpful or a waste? Anything you didn't like?
Comfort kits for the PICU: these will be for families who have a critically ill child that was emergently admitted to the ICU. We want to provide things to make their stay more comfortable and tolerable. These will be things for the families that had no time to prepare for a hospital stay and whose child is to sick to leave. What would you like in the hospital? Anything you wish you had to make time go fast or just make you more physically comfortable??
