Foothill Regional Medical Center’s pediatric subacute unit celebrated Halloween with their annual Halloween Parade. Several hospital departments participated in the extravaganza by setting up trick-or-treat stations for kids dressed in costumes. Patient family members also attended.
“This Halloween event is a favorite for the kids and their families,” said Pediatric Subacute Activity Coordinator Julianne Schlegel. “All the costumes bring so much joy to the children’s faces.”
The 42-bed pediatric subacute unit houses medically fragile children who rely on ventilators and other medical equipment for their care. The unit is one of the only a few CMS 5-star rated pediatric subacute units in California. The hospital-based unit has 24/7 access to emergency services, pharmacy, lab, imaging, and other needed services.
