Transcript of "Clinic"

  1. 1. Foster visits the Hematology Oncology Clinic
  2. 2. Foster and his mom arrive at the clinic for his weekly clinic visit. Foster was diagnosed with cancer last year, and is receiving treatment at Children’s Mercy. He is wearing his mask so he won’t breathe in any germs that could make him sick.
  3. 3. Foster waits while his mom signs him in. Foster’s mom or dad always need to make sure that all of the information that the clinic has is correct.
  4. 4. Before he heads into the room to get weighed and measured, Foster shows one of his clinic friends his new calendar!
  5. 5. Foster is happy to see how much he has grown since his last visit!
  6. 6. Foster and his friend, Harry see how they measure up!
  7. 7. On his way to his room, Foster runs into another friend and gets one more hug!
  8. 8. This is the infusion room where kids sometimes get their chemotherapy. Foster doesn’t need to go into the infusion area today.
  9. 9. Foster takes a quick peek around to see if any of his Child Life friends or volunteers are there yet. They are fun to play with while you are in this area.
  10. 10. Now that he is in his room, Foster is allowed to take off his mask and relax before the nurse and doctor come to see him.
  11. 11. As long as he is waiting, Foster decides that he might as well practice up on his video skills.
  12. 12. The nurse draws out some blood that will go to the lab to be tested. Foster watches and learns how she puts blood in different tubes for different tests.
  13. 13. Foster is getting some of his chemotherapy drugs today. The drugs are very strong and do things like make his hair fall out. Foster knows that they also will help make him better.
  14. 14. Blood tests done, medicine given, time for a pose before Foster gets to see his doctor.
  15. 15. While he has waited, Foster has drawn a great picture to show Dr. Emami.
  16. 16. Dr. Emami gets to examine Foster and find out how he is doing. Once he is finished, Foster can go home. If he needs anything, he knows that his friends at CMH are just a phone call away.
  17. 17. Each year, hundreds of children visit the Hematology/Oncology clinic at Children’s Mercy. Some children, like Foster, have cancer. Because of specially trained staff, Foster can get much of his care in the clinic and go home. While it is always wonderful to see Foster’s smiling face in the clinic, we think it is also wonderful that his family gets to enjoy him at home!
