Child Life Assists Children and Families

Posted on 9/29/2011

Pediatric Care

Being in a children's hospital can be very hard for kids. They are in a strange place with strange people, they often don't feel well, and they may be separated from family and friends for an extended period of time. At Sunrise Children’s Hospital of Las Vegas, our Child Life Specialists assist children and their families during a hospital stay—here's an overview of what these crucial members of the pediatric hospital team do.

  • Child Life Specialists can help kids prepare for surgery or medical treatment by using toys or dolls to explain what will happen. They can also offer age-appropriate information and counseling for the child and can help parents learn how to reassure their children about upcoming procedures.


  • For kids, spending time in the hospital can be very boring. A Child Life Specialist has a wide assortment of games, toys, books, and movies for kids to use during their time in the children's hospital. The excitement of looking forward to a new toy or game each day can take the edge off the boredom—and fear—of being in the hospital.


  • The Child Life Department also sets up activities involving other kids in the hospital. These may be group games, painting, storytelling, arts and crafts, or holiday celebrations. The kids look forward to socializing with others their age, and their parents can get a well-deserved break for coffee or a snack while the kids play with their new friends.


  • When a baby is in the NICU, it can seem very scary to visiting siblings. A Child Life Specialist can help prepare siblings for their first visit with his or her newborn sibling, making for a happier visit for the entire family.

At Sunrise Children's Hospital of Las Vegas, we provide children’s emergency care, pediatric care, NICU services, and so much more. Visit our website or give us a call at (702) 731-5437 to learn more about us, our services, and our commitment to both you and your little ones.

Teaching Your Child How to Use 911

Posted on 9/27/2011

Emergency Call

All parents hope and pray that an emergency never happens while their kids are home alone. Unfortunately, it is possible that your child could have to call for emergency care when you aren't there. Or worse, they may need to call for you, especially if you have a health condition or are experiencing a high-risk pregnancy. Here are some things you need to know about teaching your child to use 911:

  • First, explain to children that police officers, paramedics, and fire fighters are their friends and want to help them. With all their gear and equipment, these lifesavers can seem scary, especially fire fighters, who may sound menacing with their oxygen masks. Remind your kids that in an emergency, the best people to have around are police officers, paramedics, and fire fighters, and introduce your children to these community heroes whenever you can.

  • Next, teach your kids to dial 911. Simple games like pointing out numbers, writing numbers, or even using the television remote to find their favorite shows can help kids learn their numbers. Then, teach them that dialing 911 will bring the help they need to your house.

  • Explain to your children what constitutes an emergency. Fires, break-ins, and medical emergencies all warrant a call to 911. Teach your children to call for help right away if someone is bleeding badly, unconscious, or not breathing.

  • Be sure that your children understand that in an emergency situation, they must answer questions honestly and do as they’re told from you, an emergency responder, or the person taking the 911 call.
