Police Officer Gives Little Patient Special Send-Off From Hospital.

Elliot Hospital and Health System in Manchester, New Hampshire, was ready to send a 2-year-old patient home after treatment, but the little boy had one special request: a hug from a police officer.

The hospital posted on Facebook explaining the boy “thought a hug from a police officer would ensure he’d feel all better after his time at the hospital.” In fact, the boy refused to accept a discharge until he got his hug! Thankfully, Officer Tony was more than happy to oblige.

Not only did Officer Tony, who was on duty at the hospital’s emergency department, make a visit to the pediatric unit, he even arranged an “extra-special badge ceremony send-off!”

“We know that sometimes special ‘medicine’ is needed to complete a patient’s treatment,” wrote the hospital.

From the pictures, we’d say Officer Tony’s hug was just what the doctor ordered!
