Bring Your Kids to Work Day
Children, after all, are like sponges. They absorb and mimic what they see.
Every parent dreams about creating a successful future for their child, With this concept the Innovation Team headed by Ms.Uma Maheswari at Kauvery decided to launch this fun filled day with personnel interaction of the children at their parents workplace.
Bringing them to work is a great way to get them off, on the right foot.
“Bring your Kids to work” event was hosted for the 1st time on 22nd Feb 2020.
The purpose of the program was to encourage, inspire and introduce the kids to our workplace and empower them to dream and explore without limitations. The day began with a game of connections , put together by the nursing team. The fun filled game was followed by a session with Dr.Lakshmi Prashanth consultant Pediatrician who charmed away the kids with her panache and played a game of jumbled words. Ms.Yamini, Dietician introduced the kids to food pyramid and importance of making healthy food choices.
Dr. Hema and Dr. Mahalakshmi anesthetists delivered a power packed Zumba session that got all the kids on their feet.
Dr.Aslesha Consultant Emergency Physician and Dr.Kathir introduced the kids to the para medical team members, who support the doctors in the treatment.
Post lunch session had Dr. Iyappan Ponnusamy who shared his journey in becoming a Radiologist. He also performed a live ultrasound that had the children spellbound. Dr.Balamurali our spine surgeon shared his views with the kids about the life of a surgeon.
The children spent the rest of the afternoon at the skill stations, where they had practical exposure to CPR, Firstaid, Hand hygiene, Infusion station, Biomedical Equipments and 3-D models of human body.
The finale was with the Fire Safety training Officer Mr. Allwin who enlightened the kids about fire safety methods.
The children were awarded a certificate of participation and presented with a stationary kit each as a token of appreciation.
Many of the children said that they had an interest in working in the medical field and this event gave them a hands-on opportunity to understand what it is like, to work in a hospital setting.
Sharing what we do at work is so much more than an event. Kids got to experience our culture and see that people work hard in order to save lives.
We’re already looking forward to hosting the next event!
