Kindergarten classes tour Veterans Memorial Hospital

Pictured above is Mrs. Stock’s Kindergarten class from West Elementary in Waukon, and pictured below is Mrs. VanderKolk’s Kindergarten class from Waterville Elementary, both in the ambulance port in Veterans Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department. Each year, Machelle Bulman, RN, Education Coordinator at VMH, gives every Kindergarten class in the area a tour of the hospital. During these tours, the students become familiar with many hospital services. The tours include the Emergency Rooms, viewing films in the X-ray rooms, viewing the newborn babies in the Maternity Services Nursery, visiting the Rehabilitation Department and taking a short ride in the ambulance, all to help them feel comfortable with these services.
