COVID-19 Vaccine for Children: How to Prepare Your Kids
Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for children 5-11 years old, it might be time to have a conversation with your kids about what the vaccine is, how getting it could make them feel, and why it’s important. Here are a few tips for having that conversation.
Masking Guidelines at Nationwide Children’s Locations
Per state and federal guidelines, all patients and visitors must wear masks within health care facilities. Hospital-provided masks are required for all patients and visitors over age 2 at any Nationwide Children’s location, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.
Preventing Holiday Hazards
Families celebrate the holidays with many different traditions and experiences. With all of the excitement and anticipation, our familiar day-to-day routines tend to shift, leading to potential encounters with holiday hazards.
What You Should Know About Long COVID
Medical providers across the nation are seeing an increase in cases of what is being called long, or long-haul COVID. Here's what you need to know about the condition.
Every Story Matters
“I have always loved being able to provide customized, supportive care to patients and families. Being able to collaborate with other providers to help patients and families understand and cope with health care experiences is really rewarding. We sometimes can’t fix everything, but when you can make even one moment better, it makes a difference.”
“Unfortunately, after a terrible accident, it took months for my cousin to receive mental health services that would assist him with his new day-to-day struggles. Watching a loved one go through such a difficult time made me realize that I wanted to help those who were experiencing similar situations. My cousins’ story provides me with the motivation to mentally meet patients and families where they are currently at and give them the best care that would be most beneficial at that time.”
