Hi, we've recently be trialing utilizing disney type movies for our pediatric patients, mostly Thursdays which are primarily ENT day. BMT's, T&A's.
We've found in our "unofficial" study that the children cry less, are easier to console, and we use less pain medication while we have the movies playing. I guess you could say we are using distraction, and it seems to be working.
Has anyone else tried this, and how did it work for you?
It's working so well for us, we have a request in for capital budget to purchase a TV on a rolling stand with DVD player.
Love to hear your suggestions.
