When 11-year-old Gwen Garbarino took a tumble on the playground, her mom Jeanne thought her daughter’s broken arm would simply need a cast. After a visit to their local emergency room at #NYP’s Allen Hospital, physicians told Jeanne to quickly take Gwen to #NYP Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital for surgery. Upon arrival, Gwen and Jeanne met #ChildLife Specialist Joe Mueller who immediately put them both at ease by explaining Gwen’s care at bedside. He showed her photos of the operating room, explained the anesthesia process and what it would feel like and then brought out a special pair of goggles. Using virtual reality, the goggles help transport pediatric patients to stunning destinations like the Swiss Alps and Iceland, all while taking their mind off of being in the hospital and calming their anxieties about their upcoming procedure. “Everyone we came in contact with was amazing and Joey was fantastic, I will continue to come back to #NYP for my children’s care because of the Child Life team and physicians,” said Jeanne. Today we are excited to share that Gwen is in good health and back on the playground! Click the link in our bio to learn more about the amazing things happening for kids at #NYP.
