My child split their chin open going over the handlebars of their bike on the way home from school. They have a big fear of needles. Peter the ED doctor was so calm and gentle with him the whole time.
As we know, fear is not a rational response and you can't rationalize with a child who is genuinely scared. Peter's empathy, calming tone and constant reassurance to my child, meant he could problem-solve to use the numbing liquid first so we could address the injecting of the local anaesthetic into my child's chin so it could be stitched up. Thank you Dr Peter - and as always the nurses and awesome admin. Narelle got my child through Triage quickly too.
