Be safe in and around the water, especially when children are present. Assign a responsible adult to wear a water watcher badge while children are in or near water. The badge wearer takes responsibility to supervise until handing off to the next water
Pick up a complimentary Water Watcher card today at the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Emergency Room or Nicklaus Children’s Urgent Care locations.
Unintentional injuries are one of the leading causes of death among children. Most of these injuries are preventable. At Nicklaus Children's Hospital we are committed to keeping children safe.
