Nurses at the University of Pennsylvania Health System take a page from the pediatric playbook to make the hospital experience more patient- and family-oriented for adults, too.

I am all for kids and adults not being afraid to go to the doctor?hospital and for it to be a good experience. My question is how many kids who don't have insurance could have been taken care of with the cost of musical stairs? How many fish tanks (which have to be maintained),gadgets etc.Were any of the items donated, do volunteers maintain the fish tanks and equipment? Sometimes as Americans we set the bar high,then keep raising it and when is enough, enough? My children both had birth defects and went to a speciality pediatric hospital and they were perfectly happen with the large doll house that was donated by someone who made it and educational toys in a toy box.One of my children continued to go for 18 years to that hospital.
