Award-winning nurse Stephanie Beddis is delighted with the progress that is being made towards the com- pletion of the Hutt Hospital s paediatric emergency waiting room. Since winning the title of New Zealand s hardest-working nurse 18 months ago she has worked closely with creative director Ann Wyatt from Red Pebble, illustrator Rachel Driscoll and the Silverstream Lions to turn her dream into reality. Ms Beddis vision is to create a unique distraction therapy environ- ment for young children within the emergency department to be known as The Tree Hutt . The aim is to minimise the trauma of the hospital experience for chil- dren and their family. According to Ms Beddis, research has shown that a child-friendly environment with murals, themes and toys is the key to distraction as it increases the child s ability to cope with pain, stress and anxiety by stimulating them to concentrate on something else. In the waiting area, children can push buttons to control a train that runs through the tree tops. Native birds will sing as the train travels along the track through a specially built tunnel and over a truss bridge, which has been built by the Welling- ton Garden Rail Group. Building the train layout and features has involved a number of members and many hours of volun- tary work, we are delighted to be part of this project and the group will continue to maintain the train and track on an ongoing basis, says Wel- lington Garden Rail member Chris Drowley. While the initial sum of $10,000 came from Gareth Morgan as Ms Beddis prize for winning the compe- tition, Silverstream Lions have helped towards the initial total cost of nearly $20,000 and ensured that the project will be completed on time. Ongoing costs to cover mainten- ance, reading books, The Tree Hutt website and consumables will require regular sponsorship and the team is organising a sponsorship package which they hope will appeal to a wide range of businesses. Voluntary time has also already been donated to create the unique environment for children at the Hutt Hospital, including the painting of the mural by Ms Wyatt and Ms Driscoll. The Tree Hutt is due to be officially opened on September 3 in time to cater for the expected additional demands from people attending the Rugby World Cup.
