Activities for inpatient families
The Patient and Family Programs team offers a variety of programs and group activities to promote a positive environment for patients and families while staying at the hospital. Some activities are offered in-person, like bedside visits with celebrities. Other activities, such as bingo, are offered on the television in the patient’s room by turning to Channel 13. This is Children’s Mercy’s very own TV channel, “CMTV”.
Staff or volunteers will advertise what activities are happening each day and will bring directions and supplies to the patients as needed.
