I bet your child have a sick or injured plush. Worry not, the “nounoursologues” at the Hôpital des Nounours (Teddy Bear hospital) will treat all plush animals on Saturday 1 Nov 2014 from 8:30am to 5pm and Sunday 2 Nov from 1 to 5pm.
The Hôpital des Nounours is a project of the Swiss Medical Students Association (swimsa). It is organized by medical students of the UNIL and the nursing students of HESAV, supported by the Department of Pediatrics.
This project aims to bring the child-friendly atmosphere of the hospital, so that the children become familiar with the medical world and don’t have fear. Young children (recommended ages 4-10y) can bring their sick plush to be treated by the “nounoursologues“. The children will also discover different parts of hospital, such as the waiting room, pharmacy, MRI and the operating room. This year they will also add a bit of microbiology and pharmacy. And finally, as we’re approaching the arrival of the annual wave of flu, the nounoursologues will again offer a workshop for washing hands in a fun and educational way.
The event is free and these 2 days are open to public (they have other dates for schools). More info here.
