Shelly’s Place is the playroom and teen room on the inpatient unit. It promotes an environment where relaxation, play and exploration can occur. Free play and daily planned activities are developmentally appropriate and provide both diversional and therapeutic outlets.
Shelly’s Place is recognized as a “safe area,” as medical procedures and discussions are restricted to treatment or patient rooms. Children are encouraged to use the toys and games in the playroom or they can take items back to their rooms for play.
In addition, patients can enjoy movies on special channels for pediatric patients, as well as computer and Internet access in the teen room.
