About Care Cards
Educating children about health and safety is an ongoing process, even after leaving the hospital. And it's takes a great team, including parents working with our physicians and nurses. That's why Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics provides resources to teach children about health and safety.
We have assembled more than 300 different "Care Cards," which are easy-to-read cards that address health topics such as common colds, cuts and scrapes, fever, head lice and poison ivy, just to name a few. The cards are reviewed and updated regularly, and they are used throughout the hospital, in both inpatient and outpatient areas, as well as throughout the community.
