Distraction Boxes for Sick Kids

Ramsgate RSL were proud to recently to donate a special distraction box for sick kids at a local hospital through charity TLC for Kids.

A distraction box is designed to give nurses and healthcare professionals the perfect tools to guide young children through painful examinations and procedures. As part of the program, Ramsgate RSL undertook a number of different activities to understand the importance of being distracted and how this can help sick kids at a crucial time in their lives.

TLC for Kids currently services 405 hospitals and medical centres around Australia with over 1,866 TLC distraction boxes currently in use. Based on the amount of children who access these boxes, TLC impact procedures up to 2,4000 times a day.
