Currently, Playright provides a regular honorary hospital play service at 6 public hospitals in 5 clusters. The hospitals receiving our service include the Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital of the Hong Kong East cluster, the Caritas Medical Centre and the Princess Margaret Hospital of the Kowloon West cluster, the Tseung Kwan O Hospital of the Kowloon East cluster, the Hong Kong Children’s Hospital of the Kowloon Central Cluster, as well as the Prince of Wales Hospital of the New Territories East cluster.
For the benefit of sick children, our hospital play specialists are stationed at hospitals every weekday and work closely with the other professionals including doctors, nurses, specialist medical staff and ward staff. In view of different treatments and different illnesses, the hospital play specialists create partnerships with the medical team to design a tailor-made hospital play plan for the sick children. Apart from the daily hospital play, the hospital play specialists have also co-operated with hospitals in response to the outbreak of SARS, Human Swine flu and lead-in-drinking-water in housing estates with regard to calming children through routine medical procedures such as blood taking and/or being put in isolation.
