It was all treats and no tricks at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center for Halloween.
Doctors, nurses and surgeons dressed up as different characters and went “reverse trick or treating” from room to room at the Hartford facility.
“It was different than the hospital. You know for a second there, I forgot that I was even here,” said patient Aliya Stephens.
Chelsea Krance planned to go trick or treating with her friends before she got sick, but said seeing her doctor in costume is the next best thing.
“You get to see everyone in their costume which is really great,” she said
“We’re happy to see a smile on her face which we haven’t seen all week,” said her father, Herman Krance.
Patients and their families weren't the only ones who benefitted from the festivities Friday.
“Everybody dresses up and it’s just so exciting to see the kids so excited and the staff just as excited,” said nurse Laura Lally.
