My Day at Taylorville Memorial Hospital a Huge Success
October 03, 2012
Did you know that approximately 252 first grade students from area schools attended the “My Day at Taylorville Memorial Hospital” program held on Wednesday and Thursday, September 26 and 27, 2012. How did you ever miss all the excitement as the children entered the Auditorium or saw the Dunn’s Ambulance in the circle drive? They were just thrilled with the entire experience from beginning to end.
The children from St. Mary’s, North, South, Stonington, Memorial, and Vision Way schools attended in groups for 1 ½ hour sessions. They were able to view booths staffed by Hospital personnel and get “hands on” experience with various hospital equipment and health related items. They not only got to look at the ambulance, but they got to get in it and really look around. They met “Mr. Bones” the skeleton and they heard their own heartbeats and had their blood oxygen checked. They visited the FNS department to see the tray line and dish machine and the walk in freezer as well as the large washers and dryers in Laundry.
We want to thank those departments who participated in this 2 day event. Without your help, this event would not have been such a success. We sincerely appreciate taking time away from your daily duties to help out.
Those departments who participated include:
Food and Nutrition Services, Laundry, Physical Rehabilitation, Laboratory, Radiology, Infection Control, Emergency Services and Dunn’s Ambulance Service, Nursing, Pharmacy, Inservice Education, Surgery, Anesthesia and Community Relations.
