The Healing Arts Kits third use by United Hatzalah in our Pilot Program.
The Northern Unit.
Friday at noon we got a call for an extremely injured child in a playground. A paramedic went to the field to secure the area. There is a child crying hysterically and her mom is trying to hold her. The teachers and on site medical person are standing around trying to help but she is not letting anyone close to her. They can’t even get near enough to her to see the extent of the injury or to give her medical treatment. The Hatzalah medic brings the Healing Arts Kits out and offers it to the child. Immediately, the child begins to calm. She lets the medic near here. It creates a bond of trust. Then, while she gets more involved with the therapeutic supplies in the Kit and is distracted by her own play, the medic moves into providing the physical care she needs.
