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.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
