NARMC donates hospital gowns to Grandma’s House
HARRISON — Recently, The Grandma’s House Children’s Advocacy Center lost most of their medical gowns after experiencing flood damage. The North Arkansas Regional Medical (NARMC) team was proud to be able to step up and meet the need of this valuable community organization.
“Grandma's House Children's Advocacy Center would like to thank NARMC for the donation of the medical gowns. The trauma that comes with a child disclosing abuse is a difficult time for a family, and it is our role to make the process as smooth as possible,” said Lora Stephens, advocacy and prevention coordinator. “After a disclosure or concern of sexual abuse, it is often helpful for a child to see a healthcare professional. Medical services are offered onsite by a specially-trained pediatric sexual assault nurse examiner in our specially designed, child-friendly examination room. We have a wonderful nurse that works with the children, and we are so thankful to be able to perform the exams in our facilities. Anything we can do to make a child more comfortable is our top priority, and because of NARMC’s donation, we can continue to meet the needs of the children and families in our community.”
NARMC staff members Kim Rosson and Nina Borland coordinated the donation.
Grandma’s House is a children’s advocacy center located in Harrison, Arkansas, and serves Baxter, Boone, Carroll, Madison, Marion, Newton and Searcy counties. Children who are victims of abuse and their families can find help and support while facing the challenges of abuse, the investigation and healing process. Grandma’s House focuses on providing a safe and welcoming environment designed specifically for children.
