CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — The Children’s Hospital at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston is being presented with four tablet computers to help young patients learn more about medical procedures and eases their fears.

The tablets are being presented in a ceremony in the hospital’s pediatric sickle cell clinic on Monday. They are housed in a protective cover that complies with the hospital infection control standards.

The devices can also be used to play games, complete homework and message friends during long hospital stays. The units are donated by Colgate-Palmolive and Harris Teeter.
