  • We chose the theme Every man is a Superman to occur on June 1 in our hospital to

    commemorate the appearance of Superman in D.C. Comics on June 1, 1938. The Every Man is

    a Superman theme focuses not only on Superman but also on the fact that every man and

    woman has powers that make him or her a Superman to someone. In a hospital, there are many

    people who should be celebrated, from the janitorial staff who create a sanitary environment to

    protect patients, to the nursing assistants, nurses, and doctors who provide care to patients every

    day. As these efforts are often overlooked, this theme will serve as a fun staff morale day. We

    feel that this theme will also strike a chord with our diverse patient and visitor population

    because all age groups are familiar with Superman. We also believe the recent trend towards

    superheroes in movies and media will add to excitement surrounding this theme day and

    contribute to its success.

    We will incorporate traditional Superman themes such as Kryptonite, Lex Luther, Lois

    Lane, and Supermans powers as well as highlighting modern-day Supermen in the hospital.

    These modern-day Supermen will be chosen by the patients and incorporated into the

    decorations in the form of handouts filled out by the patients. We think that this will be

    particularly popular with the pediatric unit because the handouts include a coloring section where

    the patients can color in their hero.

    To promote our theme day, each patient will receive an invitation to our theme day with

    their lunch a week before the event. Coloring pictures titled, My Hero Is_____ with a color-in

    figure will be handed out to the pediatric patients the day before the event and collected by the

    nursing staff. We will hang these pictures around the cafeteria so each kid can see their own. We

    will also distribute a voting sheet to all hospital staff with nominations for the Superman of each

    job type in our hospital a week before the event. The winners for each job type will be hung up

    on the wall in a Superman Spotlight area. Tissue paper balls in Superman colors (red, blue,

    yellow) will be hung from the ceiling and cardboard cutouts will be placed of superman doing

    various powers around the cafeteria. We will place dry ice around the menu item freeze breath

    frosty and each table will have trifolds announcing the event and listing some fun facts about
