A Visit to Hospital Land
A Visit to Hospital Land!
On April 9th and 10th, the first grade classes each took a trip to Hospital Land at Crouse Hospital! Hospital Land is sponsored by the Crouse Hospital Auxiliary and open to all first grade classes in the area.
While there, the students were able to take part in a simulated surgery to remove someone’s tonsils. Each student had a role to play, from admitting the patient, preparing for surgery, delivering food from the cafeteria, and being surgeons and nurses. After this, the students were able to use wheelchairs, crutches, a stretcher, sit in a hospital bed, and talk about experiences they have had being sick.
The students left with a better understanding of what it is like to visit the hospital, and how to keep their bodies healthy and safe. It was a wonderful experience!
