Photo of the Week: 'Pets' for pediatric patients

PetSmart donated 100 brand new stuffed animals to MedStar Mobile Healthcare in Fort Worth, Texas to make ambulance trips less scary for child patients


Calling all EMS photographers! EMS1 wants to see pictures of you in action or training. Submit a photo — it could be selected as our Photo of the Week! Be sure to include your name, department information and some background on the photo.

This week's Photo of the Week comes from MedStar Mobile Healthcare in Forth Worth, Texas, which received a donation of 100 brand new stuffed animals from the local PetSmart to give to pediatric patients. 

"Over the holidays, MedStar crews hope to bring a little bit of happiness to an otherwise scary experience for our littlest patients!" MedStar Chief Strategic Integration Officer Matt Zavadsky said in a statement. 

Each toy is individually shrink-wrapped to keep them sanitized until they are gifted to kids, Zavadsky said.
