These professionals do an AMAZING job of informing and calming the children in the hospital. They spend countless hours explaining with dolls, toys, books, etc what procedure the child is about to go through or how his/her life is going to be different when it is done. The CLS are an invaluable part of any children's hospital. The ipads are just another tool for them to use. If you ever experience taking a loved one to Children's (which I hope you don't), I hope you will see how important the roll of the CLS is and how they use technology to meet the needs of the patients for which they care.
