A World of Animation, Light & Sound, Right at Your Fingertips.
To help our young patients and their family members feel as stress-free as possible while visiting our Emergency Department, we have installed a state-of-the-art lighting system developed by Philips that lets the patient design his/her own environment in any of our emergency rooms.
You can change the color of the room, choose from a range of animated characters to appear as if by magic on the walls and ceiling and even choose what sounds you want to hear. With simple to use controls, you can transform the room right before your eyes. And if you find you don’t like the look, change it at any time.
We’ve added this unique system because we know how stressful a visit to the hospital can be, especially a visit to kids Emergency Department. We have found that by allowing our young patients and their family members to decide on the look and feel of the room, they are more comfortable and less anxious about their visit. The touch screen computer that makes it all possible is very intuitive and easy to use, even by a young child.
It’s just one of the many ways we are redefining the concept of what a hospital and ED area should be like, making the experience more patient-centric and putting you in control of the care you receive here at Florida Hospital for Children.
