My Hospital Story is a collection of hospital narratives designed to help children
prepare for medical visits and procedures at Boston Children’s Hospital. This app allows you to choose
from several stories and shows step-by-step photos of an upcoming procedure or appointment from your
child's perspective. Try to review My Hospital Stories with your child multiple times in the days and
weeks prior to an appointment so they have enough time to prepare.
Once you click on the Next button, you will be instructed to input your
child's name and caregiver(s). Then pick your story from the list provided. At the end of the story
there will be a short survey about the app to help us improve.
