Tips for Visiting the Emergency Room
A visit to an emergency room can be a stressful situation. And while you obviously cannot anticipate these visits, you can familiarize yourself with the following tips in the event of a future visit:
- Bring updated copies of the child's medical and immunization records
- Know the name and phone number of the child's primary physician
- Let the medical personnel know about any allergies right away
- Leave siblings at home, if possible, to minimize the effect of the trauma on the family
