Bring your kids to work, bring home a fantastic prize

Do you often talk to your kids about what you do at Michigan Medicine? Take Your Child to Work Day is this Thursday, April 26, giving you a chance to show them first-hand what you do on a daily basis.

While there is no formal program for the day at any Michigan Medicine location, talk to your supervisor to see if your department plans to participate.

If so, please consider the following to ensure a productive and enjoyable day for everyone:

  • Respect the privacy of our patients. Children cannot be exposed to any form of protected health information in accordance with organizational policy. Additionally, visiting children should not interact directly with patients.
  • For infection control reasons, visiting children are not permitted on inpatient floors or in any patient care areas in ambulatory, clinical or research settings. Children must also follow all policies in regard to the ongoing flu season and do not bring a child signs or symptoms of illness.
  • Michigan Medicine policies must be adhered to at all times. Employees are responsible for their own child(ren) while in the academic medical center.

If employees at Mott and Von Voigtlander Women’s hospitals bring children to work, they should check in at the front desk and get a visitor sticker for their child. Other departments should check in using their unit’s routine policy for visitors.

If you do bring your kid(s) to work, be sure to create some memories and snap a photo or two! Send a cool photo of you and your kid(s) at work to and you can win movie tickets or other fantastic prizes!
