Children needing urgent and emergency care have unique and special needs, requiring medical professionals who specialize in the care of children, as well as equipment designed for all sizes, from babies to young adults.
The medical staff of Children's Emergency have the necessary skills, knowledge and training to provide care for children in urgent and emergency situations. Our physicians are board-certified in pediatrics, and our nurses are experienced in treating children of all ages.
Emergency rooms are often busy places, so prepare a "visit kit" and keep it by the door or in the car. A visit kit should contain a comfort item as well as items that will provide distraction and occupy your child while you might be waiting.
Suggested visit kit items include:
Favorite stuffed animal or blanket
Story, picture, seek-and-find books
Books about doctor or hospital visits
