Erlanger Nurses Craft Newborn Caps To Raise Awareness Of Heart Health Importance

Monday, February 11, 2013

Debbie Croft and Dee Clark, both Erlanger Health System cardiac rehabilitation nurses, educated new mothers on the importance of heart health by crafting tiny red caps for newborns at Erlanger East and Baroness campuses during the first few days in February.  The red caps were placed on the newborns in the nursery, and the babies were returned to their mothers’ rooms with this message: 

 

Dear Mommy,

I’m wearing this cute little red hat to remind you to love your heart like you love me.

  Heart Disease is the number one killer of women.  So please take care of your heart because I’m gonna need you a long time. 

Love, Your Baby, Official Sponsor Newborns Go Red for Women

 

Both Ms. Croft and Ms. Clark enjoy crafts as a leisure activity and share a passion for caring for Erlanger cardiac patients.  The pair combined their two interests – cardiac education and crafting – during National Heart Month to produce a meaningful message for new moms and the adorable red caps for the newborns.
