We have a lot of handmade dolls and stuffed animals in the house, some of them made by the girls, some made by me, many made by friends, and they often need extra love and a little bit of repairing. A pile was developing with long descriptions about what needed to be repaired and I suggested making an Intake Form for the hospital, which is on top of my ironing board in the sewing room. All the patients are lined up under a "heat lamp" waiting for triage, an exam, and treatment.
I created these forms for the girls to fill out and leave with each patient. It's been a huge hit with all ages in the house (6-10). Using the templates in pages (I think microsoft word has them too) is a great love of mine. We make brochures, business cards, signs, and all kind of things with very little effort and the girls like them because they look so official. I love them because I can customize them instantly.
There's a spot to draw since writing can be hard for younger folks. Anyone can be the doctor or can help with the intake paperwork and process. Often an extra (unplugged) phone is involved. How great is having an extra real phone, not a cell phone? They love playing with it. These forms were used for both real injuries (stitches that need to be re-sewn) and made up ones. Sadie just filled out one for her dog's anxiety issues. I'm prescribing tea, meditation, and long walks as a treatment.
Here's the form to play with and customize.
I saved it as a word file (not a PDF) so hopefully you can open it and customize it for your own needs. It's written in a serious/funny way, which is our sense of humor. I printed 5 and then had to print 10 more. They are kind of heartbreaking after they are all filled out. As the doctor, I date stamp them and fill out the rest of the form and when I finish I fold it up small and tape it to the patient. I also try to add a little something, a cape, new collar, or a ribbon to spruce them up—I think a photo attached would be great, too, if they are so inclined. These forms are keepers for sure.
