A Parent's Guide to the Emergency Room: Managing Your Child's Crisis Without Fear

ER BookletChock-full of straightforward information, this booklet will prepare parents, grandparents, and caregivers for their child's unexpected emergency room visit.

This year, one out of every 2.4 children will be seen in the nation's 6000 or so emergency rooms. Most children do not make it through childhood without at least one visit to the emergency room. It can be a cold, an earache, a cut, a broken bone from a fall, or a breathing emergency. Whatever the illness or injury, an emergency room visit can be overwhelming and even scary to the parent unfamiliar with the inside of an emergency room.

In order to obtain the best possible care for their child, parents will learn:

  • What to know before an emergency
  • When to call for emergency help
  • When to go to the hospital
  • What to know before you go
  • What their pediatrician wants them to know
  • Who's who in the emergency room
  • Knowing their way around the emergency room
  • Why you have to wait so long
  • Tips on getting the best treatment
  • How to calm your child
  • The do's and don'ts of being in the emergency room
  • Common childhood illnesses and injuries
  • What to know before signing out
  • Tips on getting care if your child has a disability
  • Pages to record emergency information
  • Why they need a consent to treat form
