Happy Halloween! Patient First wants everyone to enjoy frightful fun this Halloween by providing free safety blinkers and reminding you of some trick-or-treat safety tips. Available while supplies last, the light can be picked up at the front desk of any Patient First center. Here are just a few safety reminders to help insure you and your trick-or-treaters have an enjoyable experience this year:
 
  1. Wear bright clothing or reflective gear that includes a Patient First safety blinker.
  2. Know the route that your children will take if you aren’t going with them.
  3. Younger children should go with adults; 4:1 ratio preferred.
  4. Check in with your children at specified intervals.
  5. Have an understood time for everyone to be home.
  6. Explain the difference between a “trick” and “vandalism.” This is also another good opportunity to discuss peer pressure. More often than not, kids participate in acts they know are wrong because a “friend” led the way.
  7. Remember each Patient First Neighborhood Medical Center is providing FREE x-rays of candy until November 3rd. To find a center near you, please visit our locations page.

We would love to learn what would be helpful on this page for you.
