Girl in hospital pajamas
7. You can wear our hospital PJ’s or you can wear your own PJ’s. If you wear your own PJ’s they should be 2 piece PJ’s – that means a separate top and bottom, without any slippers attached. Be sure we can see you wiggle your toes.
Nurse taking boy's temperature
8. The nurse will take your temperature. To do this she will place a small probe under your arm or in your mouth. The probe looks and feels like a straw. She will measure your oxygen level with a small clip she will either put on one of your fingers or your big toe. The clip can also count how fast your heart beats, you can watch the numbers light up and change as it counts and measures. She will also measure your Blood Pressure with a cuff that will give your arm a quick hug.
