Imagine what it's like for a child to end up in the hospital. The Nebraska Medical Center has a way to soften the scare.
The kids are greeted in their rooms by towels folded in the shape of animals.
Members of the Environmental Services staff have been doing this for years. In fact, it's part of their training. They tell us it makes their job so much better.
Staffer Cecily Graham said, "It feels good to know like, oh you're the one who made that? I'm like, yeah, that's what we do. We make the dog and the elephant. Feels good.”
Jonathan Nguyen is the boss and he tells us, “We're absolutely proud of what we've done because of the positive impact we've had on the patients. It's just, like I said, the affirmation we get from our patient interviews and patient survey cards."
Like any good caretakers they are sharing their skills. Watch the video above to find out how a towel is folded into a dog or an elephant.
