Jordan’s Princess Zein bint Al Hussein visited Miami Children’s Hospital on March 5 and toured the hospital to learn about some of the MCH programs, according to a news release. Her group was given a demonstration of MCH’s telehealth program and also toured the cardiac ICU, which provides highly specialized pre- and postop care for children undergoing cardiac surgery and interventional catheterization. A private reception and facility tour also was held at the Michael Fux Family Center.
Nurses, physicians and volunteers donate their time for the weeklong camp. Miami Beach Fire Rescue set up wheelchair paths over the sandy beach for the children, and a special "waterproof" wheelchair helped patients enjoy the water. Special hand-held ventilators enabled children who are ventilator-dependent to breathe without their devices while in the water.
