In the C.S Mott Children’s Hospital the mega craze Pokemon Go phone game is being used to keep the kids active, happy and moving during their time in hospital.
Child Life Specialist J.J Bouchard says “it’s a way to make the hospital less scary, kids are exploring a place that maybe they were afraid of only 5 minutes before we introduced this app to them and now they want to see every nook and cranny in the hospital and learn about it.”
This is the first good news story I’ve heard about Pokemon Go app and I commend the hospital for using it in a postivite way to help their patients.
