Comfort Kits

April 2011
Guideposts;Apr2011, Vol. 66 Issue 2, p12
In this article the author, a hospital chaplain by profession discusses how "Comfort Kits," a kind of tool kit released by the periodical "Guideposts," helped him to connect with his child patients. It has stickers, bracelets, crayons, a journal and a soft toy shaped like a star, so that they can be liked by children as they feel secure and connected with the physician. A hospital is generally a frightening place for children so Comfort Kits make them feel comfortable, he claims.
