Hello, I'm Dr Ranj.

0:01:020:01:03

Welcome to our very special hospital, just for children.

0:01:030:01:08

Come on, I'll show you around.

0:01:080:01:10

Lots of clever people like doctors and nurses work here,

0:01:160:01:20

and they're specially trained to care for children just like you.

0:01:200:01:25

You may come here because you're not feeling well.

0:01:290:01:33

Or you need to have a test. Or an operation.

0:01:330:01:37

-Hello.

-Hello, Dr Ranj.

0:01:390:01:41

But don't worry. Whatever you're here for,

0:01:430:01:46

there'll be someone like me to check that you're healthy,

0:01:460:01:50

or to help you get well soon.

0:01:500:01:52

This is my floor. I better get to work.

0:01:540:01:57

Hello. I'm in the plaster room -

0:01:570:02:00

where you come if you've got a broken bone or what we call a fracture.

0:02:000:02:05

I have a patient coming to see me today. Who's come to visit me?

0:02:050:02:09

Who will it be?

0:02:090:02:10

Can you guess which friend it is? Let's see.

0:02:100:02:13

I know who that is.

0:02:150:02:17

It's Petal.

0:02:180:02:20

# With buttons and bangles that jangle as I hop

0:02:200:02:25

# When I'm having so much fun it's hard for me to stop

0:02:250:02:28

# Twirling, twisting, when I'm singing any song I choose

0:02:280:02:33

# Twirling, twisting, skating, skipping in my dancing shoes

0:02:330:02:37

# Twirling, twisting, when I'm singing any song I choose

0:02:370:02:41

# Twirling, twisting, skating, skipping in my dancing shoes

0:02:410:02:45

# Twirling, twisting, skating skipping in my dancing shoes. Woo! #

0:02:450:02:51

-Hello, Petal. Good to see you. Come in.

-Hello, Dr Ranj.

0:02:520:02:56

You've been in the plaster room before, haven't you?

0:02:560:02:59

-When I broke my arm.

-That's right. You have a fractured radius.

0:02:590:03:04

-As well as my broken arm?

-No, that's just another name for the same thing.

0:03:040:03:09

Look. Here's a picture of your arm and the bones inside it.

0:03:090:03:13

This one, from your elbow to your wrist, is called the radius.

0:03:130:03:17

-Oh, radius.

-And a fracture is another word for a crack or a break.

0:03:170:03:24

-Fracture.

-Perfect.

0:03:240:03:27

-And yours is fractured there, look.

-Oh, yes.

0:03:270:03:30

-Your plaster cast protects the bone inside so it can mend.

-Hmm.

0:03:300:03:35

I put stickers on it.

0:03:350:03:36

And my friends drew pictures and wrote their names too, look.

0:03:360:03:41

That's great!

0:03:410:03:42

-How does your arm feel now?

-It hurt a lot at first but not now.

0:03:420:03:47

I think my plaster cast needs mending, Dr Ranj.

0:03:470:03:51

Look, it's a bit crumbly here, and it's dirty.

0:03:510:03:54

I wanted to wash it but they said I shouldn't get it wet.

0:03:540:03:58

Don't worry about that, Petal,

0:03:580:04:00

-because today we're going to replace it.

-What do you mean?

0:04:000:04:03

Your arm needs little longer to mend,

0:04:030:04:06

-so it's time for a new one.

-A new arm?

-No, a new cast.

0:04:060:04:10

Come over here.

0:04:100:04:12

But what about all my stickers and pictures?

0:04:120:04:15

-I think you're going to like the new one even more.

-Really? Why?

0:04:150:04:19

The cast you have now is made from something called plaster of Paris,

0:04:190:04:24

-but your new one will be made from special fibreglass.

-Fibreglass?

0:04:240:04:28

-Won't that break really easily?

-No, Petal.

0:04:280:04:31

Fibreglass is a type of plastic. It's very tough.

0:04:310:04:35

Your new cast will be lighter and you'll be able to wipe it clean.

0:04:350:04:39

-Oh, good.

-So first, we need to carefully remove your old cast.

0:04:390:04:44

-How? It's really stuck on.

-Don't worry.

0:04:440:04:47

I've got a special tool that will cut it off very quickly and easily.

0:04:470:04:51

-Oh. Will it hurt?

-No, it won't hurt, Petal.

0:04:510:04:54

The tool I'm going to use isn't sharp like a saw or scissors.

0:04:540:04:58

-It cuts the plaster with lots of tiny vibrations.

-What does that mean?

0:04:580:05:02

That means it's very shaky.

0:05:020:05:04

SHE LAUGHS

0:05:040:05:05

-Will I feel anything, Dr Ranj?

-It will feel tingly and ticklish

0:05:050:05:10

and it'll make a little bit of noise but it definitely won't hurt.

0:05:100:05:15

-Are you ready to give it a go?

-OK.

0:05:150:05:17

It feels funny.

0:05:280:05:32

Right, and now we very carefully open up the cast and take it off your arm.

0:05:400:05:45

-It tickles.

-There we go.

0:05:480:05:52

And let's take that off.

0:05:540:05:56

I haven't seen my arm for ages. Oh, it's all pale and thin.

0:06:000:06:04

That's because it's been inside the cast for a long time.

0:06:040:06:08

Poo-wee! It's a bit smelly, too.

0:06:080:06:11

You haven't had a chance to wash it for a while, have you?

0:06:110:06:14

But don't worry, I'll give it a wash and a fresh sleeve.

0:06:140:06:18

What's that for?

0:06:180:06:20

The sleeve is a nice soft layer between your arm and the cast.

0:06:200:06:24

We add some padding to, to keep your arm comfortable

0:06:240:06:27

and to protect your skin.

0:06:270:06:30

Right. There we go. Let's get it's nice and clean.

0:06:300:06:34

That feels much better.

0:06:340:06:36

Good. Now, let's add the sleeve.

0:06:360:06:39

There we are.

0:06:410:06:43

And then we add some padding.

0:06:440:06:47

Round and round it goes.

0:06:470:06:50

-Oh, I like it.

-Good. And now you get to choose the colour of the cast.

0:06:540:07:01

I can choose? Cool!

0:07:010:07:03

OK, we have blue, pink, purple...

0:07:030:07:07

-Purple!

-Or orange?

0:07:070:07:09

Purple, purple! Oh, it's my most best, favourite colour ever, ever!

0:07:090:07:13

-Not blue?

-Purple!

-Not pink?

-Purple!

-OK, purple it is, then.

-Woohoo!

0:07:130:07:19

So, we'll dip the purple bandage in some water,

0:07:190:07:22

and wrap it around your arm.

0:07:220:07:25

-There we go.

-Will it set hard like my last one?

0:07:330:07:36

Yes, your arm will still be protected and able to mend.

0:07:360:07:41

I love the colour.

0:07:410:07:43

That's looking really pretty.

0:07:430:07:45

Nearly there.

0:07:490:07:50

And you're done.

0:07:500:07:53

I love it!

0:07:530:07:56

You see, Petal, bones help your body work properly.

0:07:560:07:59

That's why it's important they're strong and healthy.

0:07:590:08:04

# Respect for your bones just think for a while

0:08:040:08:07

# If you didn't have your bones you'd be laying in a pile

0:08:070:08:10

# Respect for your bones just think for a while

0:08:100:08:13

# If you didn't have your bones, you'd be laying in a pile

0:08:130:08:16

# You've got bones in your fingers toes, legs and hands

0:08:160:08:19

-# It's bones that help your body sit down and stand.

-And stand!

0:08:190:08:22

# You've got bones in your ankle, your head and your feet

0:08:220:08:25

# If it wasn't for your bones, well, you'd be incomplete

0:08:250:08:28

# Respect for your bones just think for a while

0:08:280:08:31

# If you didn't have your bones you'd be laying in a pile

0:08:310:08:34

# Respect for your bones just think for a while

0:08:340:08:37

# If you didn't have your bones you'd be laying in a pile

0:08:370:08:40

# Take care of those bones your bones are made to last

0:08:400:08:43

# And if you break a bone you have to wear a cast

0:08:430:08:46

# Some are made fibreglass, some are made of plaster

0:08:460:08:49

# But every cast will help your bones heal a little faster

0:08:490:08:52

# Respect for your bones just think for a while

0:08:520:08:55

# If you didn't have your bones you'd be laying in a pile

0:08:550:08:58

# Respect for your bones just think for a while

0:08:580:09:01

# If you didn't have your bones you'd be laying in a pile. #

0:09:010:09:05

So there you go, Petal.

0:09:060:09:09

My new cast will help my arm get strong, won't it, Dr Ranj?

0:09:090:09:13

Yes, it will.

0:09:130:09:14

-Purple power!

-I think you deserve a sticker for coming along today.

0:09:140:09:19

-Aww, thank you, Dr Ranj.

-And we'll see you again

0:09:190:09:22

in a couple of months, to check how you're getting on.

0:09:220:09:26

-OK, bye, Dr Ranj!

-Bye, Petal.

0:09:260:09:28

It's time for me and everyone here at the Children's Hospital

0:09:280:09:32

to say goodbye now. Thanks to coming to see us.

0:09:320:09:35

See you next time.

0:09:350:09:36

But until then, be happy, be healthy, and get well soon.

0:09:360:09:40

If you're not feeling well, it's always best to go and see

0:09:590:10:03

your own doctor, and get well soon!

0:10:030:10:06

Visiting Dr Ranj at the hospital is Petal. Petal needs the cast on her arm changing because it has got dirty and is crumbling. Petal has a fractured arm. Dr Ranj shows her an x-ray of her fractured radius. She is going to have her plaster cast replaced with a fibreglass cast. Dr Ranj cuts off the plaster cast. Petal thinks her arm is thin and smelly but this is because she hasn't been able to wash it. Dr Ranj says Petal can choose the colour of her new cast. Petal picks her favourite colour - purple. Dr Ranj puts the new cast on Petal. She loves it and sings a song with Dr Ranj about taking care of your bones and wearing a cast. Petal then gets a special sticker for having being so good during her visit.
