Happy Halloween!

To celebrate here’s a quick video of our patients from last Halloween, showing all the trick-or-treating that happened on our floors. At Boston Children’s we believe that a stay in the hospital shouldn’t mean that a child has to miss out on all the things that make being a kid great. Our Child Life Specialists always go above and beyond to normalize hospital life as much as possible, and this video is a great example.

And if your little ones will be out trick-or-treating tonight, please follow these safety rules!

• Walk in groups with a trusted adult. Never let children trick-or-treat alone.

• Use a flashlight to help them see (and help others, especially drivers, see them).

• Always walk. Children should never run from house to house.

• Wear well-fitted masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked vision or trips and falls.
