The Teddy Bear Clinic is designed to help foster children create positive associations with doctors, nurses, and medical professionals. Each child has the opportunity to bring their favorite stuffed animal in for a thorough, top-to-bottom examination to ensure they are in tip top shape. When the child arrives, the teddy bear is brought into “triage” where nurses can diagnose what issues the bear may be facing. From there, the child walks their bear through a series of stations from eye exams to x-rays to surgery and beyond. Seeing each child comfort their stuffed animal by telling them “it’s going to be okay” is one of the cutest things you’ll ever see. This interaction also empowers them to not feel scared the next time they go see a doctor.
