Patient First to offer Halloween candy X-rays

© Leesburg Today - 10/28/2015

Patient First wants everyone to enjoy the frightful fun this Halloween by offering free digital X-ray imaging of Halloween candy.

Bags of candy may be brought into any Patient First medical center from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 31.

An adult should always inspect the candy before allowing a child to enjoy the sweet rewards of their trick-or-treating. This free X-ray offer is an additional precaution parents may consider. It will help provide parents peace of mind about the treats their children receive by possibly detecting objects like, glass, metal or plastic, according to a news release.

As an additional safety measure, Patient First will provide free safety blinkers at each of its medical centers during October while supplies last. The blinking light may be attached to a child's Halloween costume and can help increase visibility.
