Your child's physician may prescribe an emergency kit, containing epinephrine, to keep on hand in case of accidental exposure to latex.

Important note: Mylar balloons for patients are welcomed at Boston Children's Hospital. However, latex balloons are not allowed anywhere in the hospital. To ensure a safe environment for patients and their families, deliveries of latex balloons to the hospital will not be accepted.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
