Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Creates Healing Environment for Pediatric Patients on Valentine's Day

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Creates Healing Environment for Pediatric Patients on Valentine's Day

Cookie Decorating Activities Encourage Healing Spirits for Young Patients and Families

The pediatric unit at Kaiser Permanente Hawaii’s Moanalua Medical Center was full of activity today in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Kaiser Permanente’s Food and Nutrition Services and Child Life Services teamed up to provide a festive cookie-decorating activity to help foster the healing spirits of their youngest patients and families.

“For children and adolescents, in particular, hospitalization can be a frightening experience,” said Angelita Juan with Kaiser Permanente’s Child Life Services. “Age-appropriate activities can help to ‘normalize’ the hospital environment and decrease the anxiety that is often experienced, which is why we initiated this Valentine’s Day cookie decorating activity, serving as a means of distraction from what can be a stressful, scary and often times boring hospital stay.”
