‘The ones we play for’: Iowa keeps ‘wave’ for young patients

The Child Life program also has a pair of Ohmni robots, which patients can control from their beds to get a virtual stadium tour.

“We have a great relationship with the football team, and actually with university athletics across the board and all the different teams,” Baxter said.

Every Wednesday, a pair of athletes from various sports hop on Zoom from their respective facilities. They read a story to the young patients, and it’s broadcast to every room through the hospital’s closed-circuit television program.
