Kids get 'Happy' in children's hospital music video

Kids Get

Some cute kiddos at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Florida are showing off their happy dances. 'Fox & Friends' has their music video, which is sure to make you smile.

'Well they made that video to highlight the specialists who work with children everyday to make hospital visits a little less scary.'

The kids are rocking out to the hit song 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams, who visited the hospital back in 2008 and 2009. The hospital's digital media specialist says the children were able to just let loose and forget their worries.

'They forgot that the camera was there and when they see the camera, they were just hamming it up.'

The music video made thousands of people on Facebook happy, too.

The hospital posted the video to its page and received an outpouring of love.

The video was made in celebration of Child Life Month, which honors child life specialists and their phenomenal work with children and their families at hospitals.

an online buddy's son is an RN half the day and a child life specialist half the day at a facility in France - and boy does he love his job!!! His mama flies over to visit him in his very very small apt (one room with a sleeping loft - but his mom sleeps on the futon sofa he bought used from someone -she does take her own pillows and cooks for him his favorites on his 2 burner hot plate --she said his refrig is one of those half ones -- but there are open air market stalls and a bakery very close by -- close enough they know when the bread is coming out of the oven(s) LOL - hot croissants and fresh fruit in the next block :) oh and she said amazing butcher shop also - with real sliced horsemeat.

Child Life Specialists really help with the patient(s) and the parent(s) -- they specialize in helping the kids - like explaining procedures - bringing therapy dogs - helping with housing for the visiting parents -- and soliciting donations of things like x-boxes, laptops, etc. to keep the kids and their parents making the best of what can be very painful and scarey!

Say it loud! When I practiced as a pediatric nurse here in San Antonio, Child Life provided so much entertainment for the kids and helped make a scary hospital a little less. They got the parents involved as well, helping them to help their children get through each day. A big HUZZAH to these wonderful specialists.
