Visitor Restrictions for Inpatient Units begin December 18

Effective Wednesday, Dec. 18, visitor restrictions for children 12 years old and younger will go into effect for inpatient units at Children’s Mercy and Children’s Mercy Hospital Kansas due to the community experiencing an increase in respiratory viral illnesses.

This means visitors, including siblings, 12 years old or younger will not be permitted to visit inpatient units.

Respiratory viruses are easily spread to others. For this reason, Children’s Mercy is taking preventative measures to stop the spread of illness and provide a safe environment for patients, visitors and staff members. Signs will be posted.

Thank you for helping keep patients, families and staff safe!
