Some patients at Riley Hospital participating in ‘reverse trick-or-treating’


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Patients at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health who may not be well enough to go out for trick-or-treating, will have the fun delivered to them on Monday.

According to a release, nurses will be going room-to-room for what’s called “reverse trick-or-treating.”

The children will still be in costume, but instead of going room-to-room, the candy will be brought to them.

This is specifically for children who are isolation patients and can’t leave their hospital room to participate in other activities.

Reverse trick-or-treating is Monday at 10:45 a.m. at Riley Hospital.
