St. Mary's Center for Children Pediatric Lab Services
Through our unique "No Pain Campaign," our laboratory staff is specially-trained to work with children and minimize pain during procedures.
Through the "No Pain Campaign" we are working to create environments that are soothing and child friendly. Our staff uses distraction techniques like blowing bubbles or playing music, along with a special numbing cream to minimize the fear and pain children may associate with needle pokes.
Staff who have been trained in these techniques wear a special badge clip to identify themselves.
